    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Is this a triple FIH with the large blade passing through two of the loops/wraps? I don't understand how there is fabric showing underneath the first loop. Thanks!

    FYI, Incotex and Benjamin have it too. I'm sure others probably do as well.

    forbritisheyes - it's a double FIH. The first wrap is _ and the second is \

    Edit because graphic design is not my strong suit: the first is low and flat, the 2nd starts low and goes high, leaving part of the lower one exposed

    Completely pointless feature, imo, unless your pants' waist is a size or more off.

    I have no idea what you just wrote. Anyways, I've been trying it for the past 10 mins. I do not see how he gets the 2nd wrap to show above the wide blade.

    they only way I can interpret that given I know the knot is that the 1st wrap goes around and the 2nd wrap is the one that goes through. When you do the 1st wrap you kinda have to hold it with a two fingers in a "V" shape (at least it works for me) and then bring the 2nd wrap around and through. Depending how much overlap you want/don't want the 1st wrap will be visible underneath. Hope that helps.

    The blade goes through/under both loops/wraps.

    Meh, I didn't really look and now I feel ashamed. I hope that's enough for you people that you've made me feel this way!

    So I've read both and done both What I see is that there are 3 passes around the small blade, but only 2 used in the knot. Hence why I called it a "triple FIH". I understand now!

    Interesting to see my question spawned a discussion on FIH!

    Can someone point me to pictures of well-fitting dress shirts on "real" people, that is, not models that are 6'3" 150 lbs and don't actually have to walk around and sit down and so on?

    I have been searching the forum and find many discussions about OTR, MTM, and bespoke shirt brands that fit but have not seen many pictures of these well-fitting shirts. Thanks!

    Okay. OCBD + FC has been discussed before, and while a strange hybrid has had a few supporters (JayJay and Matt, as I recall).

    I'm thinking of doing this with an oxford cloth (blue uni stripe) with hidden button down collar. The idea struck me and I can't seem to shake it out of my head. I'd only wear them with textured sport coats, no tie, white linen squares, and white silk knots.

    Any opinions?
