They are very good. But the shirts do not pattern-match at the shoulders.

Leaving daytime CBD out of it, would you wear a black sports jacket for evening/night time socializing?
How would you like such a jacket to be made up - fabric, color of buttons - to distinguish it from an orphaned suit jacket?
What would you pair it with?
(There will of course be bonus...
Robert Talbott 7-folds are unlined. So both the OP's and Heliox's ties are the real deals.
To maintain exclusiveness, RT only makes 40 ties in any given 7-fold design. So Heli0x's tie is number 23 out of a lot of 40.

There's no such thing as bad publicity, eh? Frankly, I am half tempted to buy one just to see how good or bad it is.
I then can start a new thread with my review on the product and kick start another fire storm.

I didn't expect the amount of controversy my posting of the Ask Andy thread would generate.
Certainly, there are some alarming issues on the quality of the saddleback bag, as well as touting by possible shills. But there also seems to be a number of people who genuinely like the product. As I do not have such a bag, I can't speak on its quality.
My intention was/is for the OP to consider what some owners of said bags have to say and not just rely on...
