men's obi belt tying?

Hello! I'm looking for websites detailing how to tie Men's obi. All I've found is the clamshell knot, although websites say that there is more than 1 knot that men use to tie their obi. In Volume 18 page 43 of xxxHolic manga, Doumeki has a knot that is not a clamshell.
I've read that historically only merchants and the like tied with a clamshell knot, and I'm cosplaying a Samurai so I was hoping to find a suitable knot. Any help is appreciated. I tried using the search function but for some reason it won't display properly. Thanks in advance!
