Default What kind of tie knot do you use?

Given that there are a variety of ways to tie a necktie out there, what kind of knot do you use?

I've always been a windsor man myself.

Here's a link to a site describing several types of knots.

Windsor. Any other knot makes you look like an inept teen out for the friday night cotillion and cow-tipping for after.

Yeah... full Windsor all the way. Learned it in the Marine Corps. Possibly coincidence, but the handful of people who I've seen wear a full Windsor and asked how they learned it, they learned it in the military or from their dad who was in the military. I mostly see people in half-Windsors.

Full Windsor. It's how you wear a tie.

Half windsor for normal ties, windsor for skinnier ties. Half in general though.

I always forget to update this thing, so the above should in general hold true.

I voted for "No tie! I'm no slave to the man." because it's true.

Full/Double Windsor FTW. Learned in in the Navy - and I was so proud of myself as my mother used to tie my ties for me when I was little.

Yeah, it was one of those small accomplishments that make me smile.

Although it only happens a few times a year, I generally tie a full windsor. However, I will use the half on occasion if it is a wide tie or if I'm not fixing the top button of my shirt.
