I found the forum through the Ebay seller advice thread and more recently through the Sam Hober appreciation thread. I have learned quite a bit about selling on Ebay from all of you all and have funded my tie addiction largely through that effort for at least a year. More recently I discovered the Sam Hober appreciation thread and placed my first order with them. I ordered a slate blue grossa grenadine and a Christ Church Duster, both of which have me waiting lustfully. I will post pics when they arrive.
I am a Neuroscience professor in Dallas TX and have no need to dress semi-formally everyday but feel more comfortable in a suit and tie than in jeans and boots. I have come to appreciate that my students and colleagues get a kick out of the change of pace I offer for our eclectic department. That and I just freaking love ties and pocket squares.
Thanks to all of you for making this such a cool place to browse for the past 2 or so years that I have been aware of it.
