I'm a windsor type of guy, commonly sport the full windsor.
Four in hand. Always. Sometimes I wrap the long end around twice if the tie is thin and long enough--I'm only 5'8", but that's the only variation.
And a bow for DJ.
+1! Exactly how I tie mine!
A tightly-tied, obnoxiously symmetrical Half-Windsor (with the rare FIH thrown in). With a dimple.
I always reverse tie my tie. Always look's smart skinny.
Everything else is for douchebags.
It's starting to drive me up the walls when people comment on the FIH or Half-Windsor I sometimes use with a spread collar. "You know you should wear a thicker tie-knot with that collar?"
FIH for life.
Almost always FIH; I usually wear button down shirts, but when I wear a spread collar I will sometimes wear a half-windsor. I also just started experimenting with the Prince Albert, will probably wear that more often now.
Isn't the Prince Albert the same as the Italian FIH withe the exception being that the PA uses the outer loop as opposed to the inner loop? Or am I missing something?
My favorite is the balloon knot.
while the half windsor is not my favorite, it is the only one i tie.
four-in-hand or a double FIH
I guess whatever the Windsor Knot in reverse tying a tie is my fave, though i'm not fussy but like a little bit loose - like dimped on the knot.
