    I guess by inventing and using the "Ian Knot", which he can tie in "one third of the time of a conventional knot", he has loads of time to work on this fascinating web site!

    I just stumbled upon this site by chance and found it quite interesting. When I wanted to post a thread all about it in the FL, I did a search first.

    So let's *BUMP* this!

    You know, I hadn't mentioned in my previous post my intention for looking up various lacings.

    Does anyone know what lacings are more "formal" or which lacings are more Golden era?

    Thank you for sharing the link, Mycroft. I am a very busy person so I do not have the time to do experiments on my shoe lace. But would really love to try this one of these days.

    I've been using the Roman lacing on a couple of pairs for a few years now. It looks great on a nice pair of shoes and always seems to capture a compliment.
