Same as the four in hand, just do one more wrap-around (not to be confused with "reach around").

I'm sporting the double FIH today.

How do you get a perfect dimple with it?! I spend more time on the tie than the rest of the ensemble trying to achieve it... Pisses me off. Any tips?

Before you tighten the knot, crease the front of the knot by inserting your index finger, then pinch the crease and tighten the knot.

The website is garbage and keeps showing how to make the same tie when you click on different ones, LOL. Go to Detail's magazine and click on the fashion tab and they have introductory videos on how to tie all the ties, very useful. VictorJBehar.com

The knots are correct, as are the instructions. The tied image at the top is just a banner.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
