    Machine-stitched edges, sloppy finishing on the corners too.

    Hmmm it would appear that you have something that might work. Do you by chance have a picture of the blue seersucker in action? :D

    i think i've been doing it wrong... :embar: i wrap twice... and then thread the wide end of the tie through BOTH of the loops but it appears that the guy in the video only threaded the tie through the 2nd loop did i get that right? so how i've been doing it... [​IMG] [​IMG] results in this... doesn't look bad, right? but it's very difficult to undo the knot and retie to adjust

    If you just want the heft of the double FIH, thread the front blade through the second loop. If you want that sprezzy look (sloppy to me, but to each . . .), thread through the first loop and you'll get that extra bit of fabric peeking out as in the photos above.
