Gets them shining like fucking mirrors, if you use the right polish (Ted Baker is god-tier, Kiwi is good, Guardsmans Gloss is shit).

Windsor or half windsor depending on how thick the tie is and how big you want the knot to be, bigger being bolder

I wore khakis, a white shirt, a shiny dark blue and black tie, and a navy argyle sweater vest with shined black shoes and a black peacoat. I had a lot of meetings today. I was also awarded a pin from the CTO. So I took it up a notch. I used a half Windsor. A full Windsor with the sweater vest looked awkward, especially with the khakis.

Tomorrow is completely dedicated to development/programming, followed by drinks after work with a couple of my wife's friends.

I'm wearing jeans, a bright green dress shirt with a skinny dark brown and black tie, dark grey long sleeve v-neck sweater and dress boots (Clarks). I'll probably go with an asymmetrical knot, like an Oriental or a Pratt. That way I can leave the top button unbuttoned, and have the tie hang correct.

I hate the four in hand. It always loosens up and slides down .. always.

I only do full Windsor knots when I wear a proper suit.

There are way more than four types of knots. Kelvin. Persian. Shelby/Pratt. Oriental. You could go *really* crazy and do an Atlantic if thats your thing.
