A question on men's neckwear (image intensive)

Here's Jenny's picture from Neckclothitania again, plus some photos of men wearing the things. Whilst you are twiddling your thumbs waiting for them all to load, think on this......Can you put a name to each style? I find it very difficult. If you look at photos, the white ones are usually quite indistinct. If you look at contemporary paintings, the neckcloth is usually painted very indistinctly, to suggest a fluffy look. And usually, men's necks are not as long as shown in the drawings, so the neckcloth always looks a bit scrunged up. Anyway, what do you think of these examples? (No, not the men!!!!)
I think I've decided that Mr. Darcy favours the Ballroom in the 'look" scene at Pemberley..Anyone want to do a close inspection and see if I am right?
We have permission to use these pictures at Pemberley. Most of them can be found in our Photo Gallery.
