just my 2 cents, but i think this is how the swap box meets its demise. Not singling you out personally at all atlas....the canali is a nice tie sure...and the MSRP was probably an easy $100...but trading a popular SF approved tie for a tie that my cousin would wear to prom isnt a fair trade.

again, not singling you out at all, and im sorry if i came across as a dick...mebbe im just in a shit mood today....hopefully others will provide more feedback.


I also think a pocket square swap box would blow the pants off of any tie swap box. No idea why this hasnt taken off yet.

Derek, I agree with you, bro. I think another issue is the color of the tie (many of the ties in the box, in general). That striped combo may not be the most coveted. If it were something like a solid navy, or navy pindot, or PoW pattern, it may get a warmer reception.

In addition, I have always felt that pocket squares should be left out of the box. By throwing in pocket squares, one is more or less admitting that his tie is not of equal value. And subsequently it starts to water down the TSB. It's no coincidence that the last two ties taken were/are the Yellow Hook ties. But you can't necessarily blame Atlas and Stitch for this. They're great looking ties. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif IMO, I would not put in a navy neat print Drakes or navy Isaia for anything in the box right now.

On a side, I think that the Tie Swap would work best like a Secret Santa. Say there are 8 people, each person draws a name and sends that person a tie. At the end the ties and Secret Santas are revealed. I like this because it typically encourages everyone to want to "one up" the next person and in the end people get some pretty nice shizz.

You said what i was too lazy and cranky to fully type out hahaha. VERY well said.

But i do want to keep the squares in the box. because when it does get to me, ill put in a nice tie and only take a couple squares because as of right now, nothing really appeals to me in the box

i think the secret santa type idea is potentially very good.

After following the last few pages I'm glad I skipped all this drama.

Well I sure wasn't expecting the hate on the Canali, but I hear you. I'll put this tie instead:
