It might be called The Getaway: Black Monday.
They're nicely made ties, but I don't think they're going to amaze anyone with their designs or luxuriousness. I appear to have created a mountain out of a mole hill.
You've got a solid little site. Quite user friendly. I think the scans would add to the history section.
The clip-on buttons are doing their job well. I've been wearing them for three days now with three different suits. No problems so far. Based on current experience, I'd recommend them.

Thanks. EDIT: If this should be in buying and...
Good Lord.
Quote: Where does one get interesting socks of high quality?  Paul Stuart has an okay selection I guess.  But I would love to find, for example, the kind with that sort of old fashioned "deco" design down the side - like an elongated lyre or scroll in a contrasting color - maybe even incorporating a monogram into the design.
