stock tie and pin annoyance
At a mock hunt recently I was tying my fiancee's stock and pinning it and remembered how irritating they are. Most of my stocks are covered in blood spots from me stabbing self with pin!
1. I ordered a Large stock tie - it's about 10" too short on him. Barely enough to cross the ends over. Who makes a really LONG one?
2. Stock pins made of flimsy gold plated metal are awful - they bend. Has anyone tried the steel shank ones? Worth the extra $?
3. Anyone use a tie tack or any other pinning method? I am afraid I will give my SO an unintended tracheotomy soon!
