Here are a few recent arrivals, including a Drake's straight from the Spoo vault. Bonus shot of a couple of Nickys I picked up a few months back: ^I don't know why that last pic was rotated.
After a several year online and phone friendship with David (we share a mutual interest in Hyderabad, India), I finally ordered my first Sam Hober tie. It's a fantastic tie, and I can't wait to wear it.

Those likely will be sticking close to home. I'll let you know if not. Btw, I received a package from you today. Thanks--it's just what I was after. Absolutely perfect.
That RLPL should have been mine. I was going through the suits, a guy walks up with a buddy and grabs a suit off the rack about three suits down from me. He says, "Here, this is a Purple Label.
