Our twelfth auction for the Ronald McDonald House, on Boxing Day, is for an omnibus of gifts from a variety of friends of the forum. In this package is included:
1) One (1) pair of Epaulet
pants of your choice, retail of up to $235.
2) One (1) tie from the soon to be launched tie line, Yellow Hook Neckties, from our own NewYorkIslander. Here is a picture of some of his six folds, which will retail for $129. No site is up yet, but you should follow the news here: https://www.facebook.com/YellowHookNecktieCo
3) Putthison (putthison.com) Gentlemen’s association pocket squares. I think that some of these are priceless. Several may even be timeless.
4) From the leathermaker zissou, and full leather set, including a belt, and card case, a key chain, an eyeglassses case, a bracelet, and a little surprise of something never before made (by Zissou, I make no claims that no one else has ever made it, with a total retail of $225
It's easiest to see everything on zissou’s Etsy Shop, Summit Creek Dry Goods
5) Any one pair of Paulrose Products jeans from www.tateandYoko.com
. These jeans are all made in Canada of Japanese fabrics, and come in two fits, a straight leg, midrise, 1947 Levis 501 fit, and a lower rise, slimmer fit. The traditional model is are available in heavyweight 17 ounce and the slimmer model in a more traditional 14 ounce fabric. All jeans run $230 retail value.
Bidding starts at $250 on a retail of $919. That’s a full 73% off retail, better than nearly any of the deals out there, and honestly, you get pretty much a full outfit, minus the shirt and boots. Maybe you literally had to sell the shoes off your feet and the shirt off your back in order to get what you needed for Christmas. Or maybe you are are a male stripper going as some sort of dandy lumberjack. Truthfully, I have no good narrative for this except that these donation are all from good members of the community, and this package probably makes more sense than what your grandmother sent you, unless it was cash.
Bidding starts are $250, which is $50 per set of items on that list. Crazy. Let’s get the bidding started. Please post your bids here, in increments of $10 or more, or PM me to place an anonymous bid for you. This auction will end tomorrow morning at 12 p.m. EST, 9 a.m. PST.
Good luck to all.
