Had to pick up a few more things today as the deals were still pretty compelling (although not black friday good). 3 Charvet Wool/Silk Ties from Saks ($25 each) 4 Breuer Ties - Neiman ($21 each) Canterelli Cashmere Sportcoat - Neiman ($144) 10 Talbott OTC Socks - Nordstroms Rack ($5.75 each) Still looking for that high-quality soft briefcase for around $300-$350. Just couldn't cough up $600 for that awesome Prada that's on B&S. Thinking of getting a Canali oil calf with...
everyone is in the Whnay thread.
I think I have both of those Battistonis. They are really nice conservative ties. Among my favorite makers next to Barba. $45 is a great price considering they are new - even on ebay that would be reasonable.

I dropped it to $100 - less than 1/2 of what I paid for it. If anyone is looking for a great condition vintage case, this is it. I really like the leather and construction. It was an experiement to see if I'd like a hardcase. After trying it for a day I concluded I'd probably not use it. So If I can get it into someone's hands who will enjoy it, great. otherwise, I'll ebay it or leave it in my closet.
I don't know what the underlying leather is - but I believe saffiano refers to the imprint on the hide. The rough cross hatch on the leather makes it fairly resistant to scratches and keeps it looking new for a long time. No chance of developing a patina on it, but its great for contemporary pieces.

What is the lining? What kind of leather? I notice a grain, is it a cleanable style? I ask because some pebble grain items react badly to leather conditioners.
