    Wait, is it the double FIH, but they pull the tie through the first loop (that's why we can see a bit of that first loop)? I hope someone understands what I mean.
    Yes, I believe that's what you're seeing in each of these photos.

    What knot is this? It's not FIH or double FIH. What is it?

    Looks good, try to have 3 roll 2 or 3 roll 2.5 instead of 3 button.

    That's not because of the "big ass" (FYI, one can't work out to make one's ass bigger). It's because he has a small waist and that suit must have quite a lot of waist suppression, hence the bottom of the jacket "sits" on his waist -> the bottom flare out. He need to loose the waist out a bit.

    These were originally posted in WAYWRN thread:







    I figured this would be the best place to ask this: What knot is this? It's not FIH or double FIH. What is it?

    When I saw those pictures, I immediately focussed in on the tie. My exact thought was, "that's a sh*tty looking knot." Little did I know, your post was an inquiry about the knot type. PLEASE, don't use that knot.

    Does the King Edward unbuttoned bottom button rule apply to denim jackets?

    Oh yes you can build up the glutes. http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/planet46.htm Complaining about big butts are pretty common for guys that dead,squat instead of focussing on the mirror lifts like benching.
    Exercises make your glutes toner, reduce cellulite, reduce fat, never bigger. Want it to be bigger? eat more fat. Also, what the heck is "dead squat"? you mean dead lift? Dead lift pays more attention to hamstring than glute (since the weight is in front), unless you do those modified version that doesn't require you to go all the way down.

    Why wouldn't an excercise designed to target your glutes NOT build those muscles?

    Simple explanation: you gain muscle mass, but lose fat. However, the amount of fat loss is most likely to be more than the muscle mass gain -> the butt actually gets slightly smaller. Now, technically, you can't do spot reduction. However, glute exercises are one of the more difficult one to get bigger muscle. So by the time you gain mass on your glute muscle, you lose a lot of fat too. Also note that fat and cellulite are mostly at the bottom part of your gluteus maximus muscle, when your butt muscle gets bigger, you lose fat -> the effect looks like the buttock gets lifted up -> exactly what most people want even though your butt never get "lifted". It just lose mass at the bottom, and gain mass at the top part.

    That's like saying you can't build any other muscle up. Not to mention plenty of people are already low fat and don't have a lot of fat to lose.

    That's not fat.

    Then we get to the point that big butt is a relative term. If you drop fat you lose it all over. Your waist gets smaller. Making the butt relativing bigger. My hip to waist ratio is .66667 . My butt isn't even that big relative to others.

    There are only 2 groups of muscle that the more you exercise correctly and eat correctly, the smaller (but toner) they get: glute and abs. Why only these 2? They are the main areas where fat accumulated. Other muscle groups grow like normal. Also, can't see your link. PS: I will not continue arguing about this anymore. This is not a place.

    That rule does not apply to outerwear.
