How Do you Knot your Tie?

I've been tying the simple Four-in-Hand (Most Common) knot for a long time, but recently started trying out different knots. I think I like the Windsor the best as far as practicality goes. I think the Hanover is best in appearance because I like the large triangular shape of it, but it leaves me with almost no short part of the tie left. I'll have to keep working on that one.

BTW, the knot's are listed in order of Size.

I read that sometimes the Half Windsor is referred to as the Windsor, in which case the Windsor would be referred to as the double windsor.

Either way, I believe there are only two windsor knots, one which is approximately half as large as the other. I think I read this on wikipedia...

The Windsor knot, also sometimes referred to as a full Windsor to distinguish it from the half-Windsor or erroneously as a "double Windsor"

I used to have my dad tie the tie on him then loosen it so I could slip it on. Then I moved out and had to learn the ubiquitous four-in-hand (never knew it was called that until I read this thread). It's the only way I know, or care to know as I wear ties so infrequently.

Four-in-hand for normal stuff. While in the army I had someone tie my tie in a Windsor and I've kept it like that since.

ever since I was 8 we would have to dress up for our hockey games (button down shirt, tie, khakis) and I'd re-tie my tie before every game. Tieing a tie is an essential male life skill, I weep for those who don't have it
