Also, I'm suspicious of a few of those, but not all. Does Drakes really make squares that don't have hand rolled edges? Some of the tagging on a few of the ties looks a bit off too.

AFAIK all Italian-made Drake's squares are machine-rolled. This recently came up in the Rubi threak.

Actually the squares are the most wearable items on offer. 95% of the ties are unwearable and the remaining 5% are too niche to be worth owning. I realize even the most honored brands have more than their fair share of misses, but that seller did an incredible job of amassing the most comprehensive collection of Drake's abortions.

98.5% sure this stock is from the last Drake's/Armoury NYC sample sale. Looks like all the unsold stock was bought by this jobber. I recognize a lot of this dreck. These ties have been up for months. Anything decent that wasn't bought at the sale sold over eBay long ago. 


It is all authentic Drake's, but some is old stock with older labels.

+1, I remember seeing some of them in the sample sale. I thought Bloomingdales is awesome at selecting bad Drakes, this is some next level stuff though

I got a scarf for $19.99 and one of the red and black wool paisley ties for a cheap price.

The nicer ties in his listing have a higher BIN. I'll wait till they drop in price.

I picked up a couple of very nice Drake cashmere turtlenecks from this seller, for a great price, this past summer.

It's also important to consider the larger issue, which is that this seller will likely drive down the price of Drake's ties across ebay. This will benefit igents.

Bespoke Oxxoford camel polo coat (~44)

I just bought an polo coat a month ago otherwise I would be all over that.

Not a polo coat, but a DB cashmere camel-colored Oxxford Imperial Cashmere overcoat in 42T. I feel like this listing has been up for a while and the seller keeps dropping the price, so who knows what you could get it for on best offer:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Oxxford-Bespoke-IMPERIAL-CASHMERE-overcoat-polo-coat-brown-tuape-42-T-L-vicuna-/111864107221

Note that although the listing title says vicuna but it's actually cashmere. I messaged the seller and he said it was "vicuna colored" which is misleading and annoying.

For those who can't afford the Invertere bearcat coats that pop up every once in a while, a SB alpaca coat with a low starting bid: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mens-LLAMA-HAIR-FUR-coat-alpaca-vicuna-teddy-mohair-lama-camel-wool-jacket-L-XL-/391369539356
