@SpooPoker and others, the label is missing, but the silk feels gorgeous, and the tie seems well made. Dimensions are 58.25 x 3.625. Legit? And if so, any suggestions for a title? Thanks a lot!        
They need to sell 3 suits at full retail price to make up for their annual losses. Or so I hear.
Wow, that is crazy. Are you saying that the high-end stuff is just lying there in thrift stores with no reseller industry to take advantage of it? Or by 'flippers' you mean one-man operations like yourself?
