While re-reading The 85 Ways to Tie a Tie, I worked out which of their unnamed knots correspond to knots I've seen described elsewhere.

It turns out that if you make their first Christensen variant, but put the wide end through just one loop at the end, you get the knot that's I've seen listed as a "Manhattan" elsewhere.

In appearance I guess it is like a wider Victoria knot, in a similar way to how a Christensen could be seen as a wider alternative to Prince Albert.
