Comments: I realize that I care about all this too much

I only ever learned to tie one tie knot, the Double Windsor, because I have a small neck and a low torso-to-leg-length ratio, and most ties end up hanging down to my knees if I tie anything else. But the one thing I have learned is that, for the Double Windsor, at least, reversing the direction that the tie originally hangs around your neck will change the final knot between slip knot and true knot, with only a very small difference in the final appearance of the knot. I haven't any idea whether that would be true for a standard Windsor (or any other knots, for that matter), but it might be worth trying.

I'd always thought a Full Windsor was a slipknot, but a Half Windsor wasn't. Then again, I once thought Chris de Burgh was an interesting and talented artist, so I'm probably not to be trusted.
