    In regards to the double FIH, get the basics right first (regular FIH). I'm not a fan of this knot personally as I think it just looks a bit affected and is definitely a SF groupthink thing. Only time I can see it appropriate over a regular FIH is if you are short and you have a lot of tie length to take up. Hope that helps.

    I hope she wasn't too late for your girlfriend experience. I told her to light a fire under it.

    Thanks, The FIH and the half windsor are what I have been using years, I thought I would try to switch it up to something a little different but I guess I'll be going back to them.

    woops... I can assure you however it's from leaning forward in my chair and not due to the tightness of my trousers.

    Just because you don't like something, it doesn't make it SF groupthink. A double four-in-a-hand is indiscernible from a regular FIH by anyone but us clothes-nerds. It has a handful of positive aspects: It has a slightly larger sized to fill your collar if needed, and keeps the asymmetry of the regular FIH. It's no harder to tie than the FIH. I have one tie that, for whatever reason, it just works better than the FIH. I would be wary of declaring what's classy and not classy, or whats SF approved or SF groupthink.

    I say people should experiment and try to figure out what works with them. Most would agree a windsor throws the proportions off a bit, but for us with slightly less luxurious neckwear, maybe we need the size a double four-in-a-hand can offer.
