OMG! You don't know how to FROOF?!!!
Well.....I'm gonna need some help here from my fellow cothers but I suggest the first step is:
-take a sip from your flask & smile
-put your stock on
-take another sip
-tie a square knot
-take a sipppp
-dubbble the endsh over each utha
-take a shlip from your frashk
-leave a lot of extra material above the knot at the fold over points so it's poofy!!
-take another swaller
- put the gol-durned gold pin thingy thru the 2 foldoverz AND thru the knot making sure it's perfectly horizontal
-sip from your flask
-repinn the pin several times trying to get the stupid pin horizontal
-sip, repin, sip repin, siprepin.......
-tuck it in or pin the lower parts to yer shirt so it doesn't blow up into your face while you're galloping
- take a long celebratory swig from the flask & refill it.
-and there....you're done!
To add to Wateryglen's directions,
If you pin, with a small-ish safety pin, the stock at the back of collar, the stock won't ride up over your collar. It keeps your stock from rubbing your neck when you are going like the wind and then standing around at a check, sweating.. er.. glowing with good health...
It looks like folks don't pull the knot tight and unfold the portion of the 4-fold after the knot a bit for better floofing. Is that the case? I'm still struggling with getting the stupid pin more or less horizontal without stabbing myself in the sternum in the process.
