Hoping someone will take this challenge.

Can some please tie a four in hand knot in as many different types of silk ties.
ie... 3 fold, 4 fold, 5, 6, 7 and 6-7 unlined too and post them. This would really be educational to see the same knot but with the different thickness of ties to see knot size and dimple depth.

Maybe a spread collar to give the full effect.

thanks, Crispiano

:idea: Sounds like work! Perhaps you might consider contacting David Hober for a price quote on your request.

This reminds me of the business school forums where people would invariably say, "could someone give me a SWOT analysis for [big multinational conglomerate]" because they had to turn one in and needed the answers without having to work for them.

One of the duties of a modern military bootcamp D.I. is teaching recruits how to tie a four in hand!
One would think a symmetrical Windsor would be used, but no, it's the FIH.
The ties are standard issue, yet I remember the amazing subtle variations in knot detail when we switched over from the older crackerjack uniform.
You could tell some recruit's D.I. by their knots.
Thats the military. You're asking for examples with a myriad of variables; silk type ( a grenadine will lock a knot differentlyfrom a satin) lining material, individual point of knot on the tie.
If you are specifying a spread collar, you must be looking for a more filling FIH.
Common sense should indicate more material will provide a more robust knot.

I just thought that someone might be able to step up and help with this. I'm not asking for people to go and buy anything, just what you have and what the different ties that you own do for you.

I don't have an unlimited budget or local stores that carry that many different kinds of ties. I don't want to make multiple purchases or mistakes that maybe some of you have made.

I'd recommend heading to your local Goodwill or other thrift store and going to town at the tie rack. Wear a proper shirt so you can get the length right when you tie them. Most of the ties will be junk, but you're likely to find a few real ties to experiment with and possibly buy at $1 or so each.
