No pics, but just a very generic fold in half then tuck one end through the loop. The fact that it's a really big scarf just makes the knot nice and substantial. So boring. But yeah, that's what I was thinking. Yup, US embassy. Good shout on the book. I'll pick something up at the station.
Just go for a huge black scarf. I got luxire to make me one with tassels that's 80 x 40", looks good when worn with my ToJ bomber. On another note, what's acceptable embassy interview wear when you have to talk to someone about getting your visa?
