My God..where are you that you can't find a shirt with French cuffs? You can get that at Macy's or Kohls!

It was actually my first attempt at a four in a hand knot I'll give both a proper half and full windsor a try when I get home (those two I know how to tie haha).
I'm in Montreal but the main problem is the combination of slim fit and long arms. If I settled for regular fit it would have been a bit easier to find, but even with darts regular fit would have to be chopped on the sides by a tailor to somewhat fit my body shape.
That said, Montreal is one of the least fashion friendly cities for above average height or above average taste/standards. Which I have both :P.
Whaddya mean "but"? Patina IS character.
Good god, you can have custom shirts made for half that! Most of your money just went to the label.
I suspect you have your names confused...there is no way the knot in that pic is a four-in-hand.
Yup, I know that but it fit without any alterations and in the time constraint (needed for tomorrow) it saved my butt. I'm still searching for a local tailor that can do shirts in the 100$ range though.
So far the cheapest and quality custom shirts are 300$ a piece (if I order three). I may go for it when I'm in Tokyo again next year.
I really wish I did. I screwed up following this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RitsFlQDL3g
Maybe it was my teenage muscle memory coming back wanting to do a full windsor? lol
It seems like everyone is on board with this so will do!
Full Windsor is not inherently terrible...it just has to be in proportion with the collar and the wearer's face/ neck/ head...and not tied with too thick/ wide of a knot-but there are a lot of guys who do not make a good choice and going around looking like a particularly stinky douchebag. For my money, a Half Winsdor is a great knot...especially with a spread collar on a formal occasion.
Agreed! I don't know where all this windsor hate is coming from! It depends on the collar, the jacket, and many other factors what knot is appropriate. Are these folks honestly suggesting that a four in hand knot could look good with a full spread collar? I'm wearing a spread collar and full windsor at my wedding; a four in hand never even crossed my mind, especially as I'm wearing a morning coat. In general, depending on the dimensions of the tie, I tie either a Prince Albert, or a half windsor. I tie a full windsor in certain ties for more formal occasions.
I think the half windsor in the pic above is spot on. A four-in-hand with that collar will probably make the whole neck area look far too empty.
Well, that one is clearly too big. I think the guy wearing it is on the shorter side. There is no single knot that is going to work with every guy, every collar and every situation. Same with lapels.
