Just to pick two examples from back to back posts from earlier today, take a look at @upr_crust (who I'm pretty sure tied a half windsor, but please correct me if I'm wrong) vs. @An Acute Style . I think the former knot looks better than the latter. A little thicker/bigger knot is a winner in my book.
You're also comparing Charvet to, perhaps, Ralph Lauren? Charvet will always tie a thicker knot. FiH looks better. You simply prefer thicker silk in this instance.

I prefer a fatter more equilateral knot vs. a longer skinnier FIH knot.

The weather continues to be dry, if not sunny today, and pleasantly warm. To that end, I've donned a tropical-weight suit, with which I am wearing loafers (gasp!), for two very fine reasons. First, they are Alden shell cordovans, and I've not worn them in a long time, and second, I am seeing my alterations tailor later on today, and will be trying on the two suits I left with him to alter, thus needing footwear that was easy-on, easy-off.

Note also, for those debating four-in-hand vs. half-Windsor tie knots, that today's tie is tied in a double FIH, as opposed to yesterday's half Windsor - both ties being Charvets.

Suit - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
Shirt and braces - Brooks Brothers
Cufflinks - Benson & Clegg, London
Pocket square - vintage no name brand
Shoes - Brooks Brothers/Alden shell cordovan
Face mask - New & Lingwood
