    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.
