The UK/EU tie swap box rises from the Ashes - Reborn Stateside - Page 82

post #1216 of 1546
i like the mustard and flowers the best. as to swapping 1 for 3, ill let others chime in.
post #1217 of 1546
I'd try to take max 1 tie and 1 square. And I'd keep the trades 1:1 to keep up quality.

I like the mustard one most. I know nothing about Venanzi (or really any of those ties besides RLPL), but I'd need a little convincing that they're worth an EG Capelli (that is the purple grenadine on the right, isn't it?) plus two pocketsquares.

 

Who's on the list for this round of swappage? I'd like to be in, though there are currently no ties in the box that I'd like to swap for...

I agree with these statements. If you guys need a midwestern connection for the box, I'd be in for next round. I have teh goods to keep a high quality 1:1 ratio going.

Gents - I meant I'd put in 3 of the ties for the one tie and 2 PS'es.

I propose the mustard and brown woolen venanzi, the RLPL, and whatever else anyone wants
post #1221 of 1546
Ah. Therefore "any three of the ties on the left", rather than "any of the three ties on the left."

Do you mind posting a close up of the houndstooth and the navy w/ flowers?

I agree with you regarding the mustard and flowers tie - those are awesome. Sorry for the confusion, I meant convey that my offer was to swap one for one! (Please see above - I'm offering one tie for one tie or one pocket square - i'm willing to put in an even 3 : 3 swappage)

Will put in the Mustard Venanzi as per your suggestion. Venanzi was a high end retailer of mens luxury items until they went under during the recession. We'll stack you towards the middle of the TSB next time - hopefully there will be some ties you like - if not, you can always pass.

Steve - welcome to the box! Glad to have you as part of the swap box! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

So far I'm hearing the Mustard Venanzi, the Boggi Milano Flower tie... The solid burgundy RLPL is also a great tie.

Do we have everyone from last round on board for this round?
