    When dressing up and wearing nice laceups, what knot do you use with your dress shoes? And how can one replicate it?

    I use the "standard knot" unless the laces are unusually long. Then the "double standard". Though, I'm curious about the "freedom knot" and the "surgeon knot".

    I use "criss-cross lacing" most of the time, and "bow tie" lacing when I'm feeling "fancy."
