Ties: What's your knot of choice?

Which style is everyone's go to tie style?

Windsor (or double windsor)


Half-Windsor


Four in Hand


Pratt


Something else?

I actually just figured out that I use the Pratt... which actually seems to be a somewhat more rare style.


EDIT: Man, I clicked poll and it didn't work.

Four in hand. It's easy and I don't wear ties often.

Definitely the Windsor.

The half-Windsor looks like someone tied it normally (Windsor), loosened the tie, took it off, and put it back on inside-out.

Been using the windsor or full-windsor or double-windsor or whatever you want to call it all my life.

If I owned a workplace, I'd ban ties. Anyone who wore one to an interview wouldn't even be hired. Starting some rebellion.

Also gotta ask: all those hating on ties how old are you?

Seriously.

I love the look of a good tie and shirt combo. So does every girl I've ever met, which makes it odd to hear that from Handbanana who I believe is a girl.

That being said, I don't wear them very often (Still probably a few dozen times a year I guess though). I feel like a million bucks when I do though.
