I recently bought a lot of 4 ties and today they arrived bunched up in a priority mail tyvek bag. WTF, if someone is going to go to the extent of shipping priority for a package under 13 ounces why not put the damn things in a box or at worst a flat rate cardboard or padded envelope? But no, a non-shaped tyvek bag.... Christ. /rant off.
I've bought about 5 tie lots on ebay. For each lot, they've either
A. Been packaged really well, but full of frays and snags that weren't in the photos
B. Would have been in great shape, but the seller jammed them all in a way-too-small box/bag.
