Official Virtual Tie Swap Box

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
So with the 2 original tie swap boxes slowing down so much, I've decided to start the virtual swap box.
The rules are simple:

Post pictures and a brief description of the ties you would like to trade.

Keep checking the thread for new posts and pics.

When you see something posted that you like, contact that member via PM and ask if you have anything they would like as well. Try to remember to include the post number your ties are located at in your PM so as to make referencing easier.

There are no restrictions as to what brands or materials of ties that may be listed. But be realistic, don't ask or offer to swap a geoffrey beene for a brioni or something stupid like that.

Any terms reached via PM for swap or sale are private and not posted.

You may post that a deal was reached with such-and-such a member and this tie is no longer available.

My brother-in-law just gave me a bunch of ties I don't want. I threw away any that were really bad, so these are all stain free from what I can see. Not great brands, but I'm sure someone can use them. These are not for trade or sale, these are all FREE. Pick one or more (as many as you want) and I'll throw them in a flat rate bag for you. All it will cost you is $5.95 for shipping, which you can paypal me. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I know, right? I only have one tie with an emblem on the front that I'll actually wear.

i think people should post pictures of items sent and received and whether the ties were in the condition described and such
so others can get a good idea of who are good honest traders


and to make it easier to identify the ties, maybe spend a few minutes labeling the ties with numbers
whether physically (like put a piece of paper with number in the photo)
or by photoshopping numbers

As mentioned in another thread, I posted pics in TSB#2. I have nothing to hide. There are people who never posted pics though...
Out of curiosity, if your collection is so refined than why were you not in on the "ultimate swap box"?

and all subsequent detailed shots hidden in spoilers so as not to overload the pages with pictures

I had no way to know this. I'll delete this thread if you want. I can wait, I was just bored at work today.
PS. Edited spoilers in as suggested.

group shot


i took pics of front and back of each tie
and left the tape measure sitting across the blade of each tie to give you an idea of the width
most ties are pretty much true to color in these photos
i can provide more detailed pics and measurement if we get close to making a deal
none of these ties have any damage or stain
some have been worn only once ... others that got more wear are still in very good shape

purple battistoni w/ paw prints (Click to show)
battistoni.jpg
battistoniback.jpg
battistonicloseup.jpg
no flash is probably closest to true colors
bb tartan and land's end donegal (Click to show)
is it tartan or plaid? i don't really know the difference
very light weight silk
bbdonegal.jpg
bbfront.jpg
bbback.jpg
worn once since i got it after summer was over


donegal.jpg
donegal2.jpg
landsendback.jpg
the color is truest in the no flash picture
this tie was worn only twice... does not really complement my skin and hair color
(this tie is no longer available - returned to land's end)
burberry and brioni (Click to show)
burbbrioni.jpg
both nice ties that i like

brionicloseup.jpg
brioniback.jpg
very luxurious silk, silky smooth
bought in september or october of '11 and worn a handful of times
would need a very nice offer to swap

burbcloseup.jpg
burbback.jpg
nice texture to the tie
good condition, no damage or stain, blade could be pressed a bit
the shirts' studio by tokyo pink tie (Click to show)
pinktheory.jpg
pinkcloseup.jpg
pinkbackkk.jpg
very slim and shiny
got a bit of sparkle stuff in the pattern
theory herringbone ties (Click to show)
herringbone.jpg
theoryback.jpg
nice herringbone pattern
i love the pattern but it's a bit too slim for me
tie is 89% wool/11% silk, a little fuzzy in tiny spots but not damaged

theory2front.jpg
theory2back.jpg
this one is even slimmer
otherwise i'd totally wear it
i might have worn this tie once... or not even once
because it's way too slim
tie is 89% wool/11% silk
