Looks like a wimpy half-Windsor to me. The kind I used to tie in college.

If you're a newb (like me), you might be surprised how nice a four in hand can look when it's used on a nice tie. It won't be like the ones you've seen. Also, you can give it an extra wrap (is that Prince Albert?) for a bit more heft. But I agree, it looks a bit asymmetric for a half-windsor.

They all look like four in hands to me. The four in hand can look chunky like a half windsor on a thick tie especially with a loose knot.

4IH (clear in the first pic, sloppy in the second).
It's clearly not a 1/2 Windsor.

Agreed. All are clearly four-in-hands.
