I was taught double windsor in the Marine Corps and continued its use throughout most of my career. Thankfully I’m in the tech industry now and only wear a tie if someone’s getting married or dead.
Left over right and under, then right over left and under: a reef knot!
Good if you don‘t need to be able to adjust the tie, and you don’t want the ends hanging straight down covering your shirt buttons.
Or maybe the rabbit comes out of his hole, goes round the tree, and back down the hole again: a bowline! Another one for when you don’t need the tie adjustable, and where you want the knot itself to be a feature not just a horizontal pass of the tie, and with stiffer ties best with the narrow end short so it sticks up in front of your chin in a decorative manner.
