Tie turned out to be pretty dark; not that bad though. Will have to go with it.

For my skinny tie what knot should I use? A four-in-hand or windsor?

4-in-hand. But you should probably get a wider tie.

Went with the skinny tie since I'm skinner and it would fit me better.

Four in hand looks kind of weird?





Then bowtie adds to waiter factor.

The knot on the Windsor is wider than the tie itself= no good. Really more like skinny tie = no good, and I am a skinny guy myself.

I'd tend to agree on the bow tie, which is why I'd still strongly recommend a jacket. That said, the four-in-hand is the only acceptable knot for a tie that skinny. It will look a bit asymmetrical; that's part of its charm.

Im kinda digging the second tie knot tbh well compared to the others. Thats a clip on bowtie isn't it? thats why you are getting the "waiter" look

So windsor = too wide (though I could make it skinnier by cinching it)
Bowtie = too waiter-y (this is the only bow tie I have, besides the teal one) Even then, I still think the tie looks better.
Four in hand = best choice out of the three.
