What's your favorite tie knot? - Page 3

post #31 of 48

Difficult question but I like the kent knot although the half winsor is good. I guess it all depends on the shirt collar type, high/low, collar spread, collar shape, pin, tab etc. I also consider the effect with the jacket lapels when tieing a knot.

You ever do it skinny side out Lord Mullberry?

Not sure what you mean. Largely the lapel size of the jacket dictates the width of the tie. i.e. wide lapels of the 1970s require a kipper tie. You wouldn't wear a skinny tie when the lapels of your jacket are reaching out towards your armpits.

Half-Windsor, most of the time. Out of habit, I suppose.

FIH, but since I'm short I have to use a double FIH often, sometimes with the wide blade under one loop, sometimes under both (depending on the ability of the tie to keep the knot in shape).

Full Windsor.  It is the knot my dad taught me and I am too lazy to learn another.

Another option would be to have the tie shortened by having part of its middle section removed, enabling use of the standard FIH knot if you prefer. A suggestion for consideration.

I can still envisage (without sweing etc) that the easiest option is jusat to wear the thin side alone out to create your own, skinny tie! Why not?

Look, if you want to look like an idiot, feel free. But please don't think that you're going to be able to start a trend or convince anyone else of such crap. I really don't know what you hope to accomplish by harping on about a particularly stupid way to wear a tie, but it's not going to change anyone's mind.

FIH most of the time, Windsor (full) the rest of the time.

Full Windsor.

is it odd to go with the FIH with a cutaway collar...?

Depends, I think. Personally I love the look of an asymmetrical FIH together with a cutaway/spread collar. But the knot shouldn't be too tiny (think Prince Charles). So either the tie has to be hefty or a double FIH is required. YMMV of course ;)
