    Double windsor, although sometimes, depending on my mood and tie, I go with the single.

    Also, I am sometimes in the mood for one of those super huge european knots; I've had 'em as big as my fist before. There wasn't much tail left. lol:apple:

    Erm, it depends on the tie for me. I tie skinny ties Four-in-Hand and generally tie standard width ties Pratt. I should use the Windsor knots more, though.

    Ok someone explain the differences.:eek: Id imagine I would say a windsor. After some research I will say the four in hand knot.

    It depends on width of tie for me. Either a Windsor or Four-in-Hand.

    Looks like I'm in the majority: it's a Windsor knot for me.

    Speaking of ties, I've seen in TV shows, movies, and in real life girls tie a tie for a guy who is struggling with it. What's with more girls knowing how to tie ties than men?

    Half- (or "Single") Windsor. Only style I could manage consistently, although the quality of the tie affects that. I suppose that I should wear bolos as I'm an Arizonan--it is the official state neckwear. :D

    OK, after looking at the diagrams, I realized that after all these years it's been the Four in Hand. My dad taught (and told) me the knot, calling it a Single Windsor. First thing I ever discovered he mislead me about, and I'm going to promptly forget it; I prefer to keep my memories of him as perfect and unrealistic as possible.

    Maybe I should go bolo. No knots, no confusion.

    I always thought it was a half windsor I did, but apparently it's the full windsor.


    I don't wear them that often anyway.
