The full Windsor knot is an asymmetrical triangular-shaped knot. Also, the knot does not slip when tied correctly. Windsor knot is very comfortable to wear as it contains some space between the necktie and the collar line. For a better appearance, a full Windsor knot should be at least 1.6 inches longer than a conventional tie. The wider neck men are best suggested to wear Windsor knot. More spaced patterns with darker tones are best suited to this knot.
