Good example is military issue neckties, which is what the guy was wearing, and probably had a Prince Albert. Is this personal preference, or is there more to this? What you can try to do to shorten the tie is to add more length to the thinner end when tying so that it is longer behind and use a tie pin to keep it neat. If, after tying, the thinner end is as long as or longer than the widest part of the front end, which is STILL past your belt, then you should probably switch to the Half Windsor knot or try and get your tie lengths altered.
However, most times, in order to look sharp, you should not have any part of the areas above the tie knot exposed when your collar is folded over your tie.
It definitely has a wide knot ideal for wide spread collars. I do not know at present about their preferences — probably something to do with habit and comfort — or even how their wives preferred them tying it or tying it for them! At the end of the day, it comes down to personality as well — some people like constantly changing things around..
Half-Windsor Tie Knot
Thank you for the help. I forgot to add that I have an oval face, which, according to all that I have read thus far, I have the luxury of having a choice of collars, which is narrowed down to either pointed, slightly spread, or the button down. I think the full windsor misses a step.
If I tie it like displayed, it looks like a four-in-hand. Between step 3 and 4. Step 3. After that continue as shown. Pingback: On knots. That said, looking at how similar the three examples of tie knots are at the top of this page, it just shows how ridiculous and pretentious style can be.
Hmm, look at that cretin wearing a four-in-hand instead of a Windsor… eyeroll. I disagree that the half Windsor is a symmetrical knot.

I never use it because it is asymmetrical. I always use full Windsor because it is symmetrical and always looks better.

I guess most of the stains are from food or drink spills. How can I keep my ties looking spot-free?
Oh sure thing, help is here, my friend! With Father's Day right around the corner—and let this serve as your two-week warning to book tickets, buy bourbon, schedule a tee time, etc. So thank you for asking what is a very good question that, no doubt, many others would like to know how to answer. Ties are actually pretty easy to care for, once the mystery has been taken out of the proceedings. Not necessarily because avoiding the dry cleaner is the ticket here—though, I can certainly help you avoid taking your ties to the dry cleaner—but because as our Letter Writer already touched on, the fabric content of your tie is going to dictate much of how you'll clean it.
When it comes to ties, you don't actually need to remember all of the rules of fabric content set forth in the ATDCCS. Silk is beautiful and temperamental, highly prone to color loss, and susceptible to water staining. I wouldn't blame you one bit if you outsourced its care.
The important thing to know about silk is that it doesn't love prolonged exposure to water, so your hand washing operation ought to be a quick one, no more than five minutes from start to finish. Wool inc.
There are two primary reasons that felting occurs: agitation and exposure to fluctuating water temperatures. Given that, it's best to hand wash, rather than machine wash, woolens in cool water. For way, way more on washing and caring for wool, check out my guide to sweater care. But fabric content is only one part of the equation. Yes, it's important to use the correct products and techniques for the fibers in need of cleaning, but it's equally crucial to properly treat that which has caused the stain. Blotting is important here—don't rub or grind, which will just smear the stain and push it deeper into the fabric.
Okay so now you've removed the blob of hoisin sauce from your tie—moo shu pork will get you every time, am I right?
