I like your additions Stitch, but the rest of the box is already pretty unsavory. peepwall[1].giflurker[1].gif

buuut, the green raw silk is sweet, the beige herringbone is ok too. the red check is passable and the knits are an embarrassment to ties.

we really need to find like 6 generous peeps to donate 2 nice ties each to get the box started with a bang, and then go from there. that way each person that gets the box will have a decent selection. instead of each person just taking the previous 1 or 2 that just got added.

SO i propose if TD is willing, to try and find a way to get a half dozen peeps to send 2 NICE ties each to me. make the box AWESOME, and take the crap to goodwill or something. the new ties will not be for me. i will stick to the 2 i have chosen. all additions that come to me will be for the box to have stock.

TD, yes?

anyone else wanna chime in?

if ya'll are good with this, i will take responsibility of making it happen. i would need i think a week at most.

i'll let you try and round up the extra ties.

the box was filled with many awful ties when I got it. all you need is to take one good one and replace with one good one. the tie box is also like marriage. you see many fish in the sea, but you just need to find one (or two) to make you happy. pass the box on shoes, let him take one (or two) and add one (or two) and move the box along to the next guy.

There is currently a green raw silk tie, a light brown herringbone, a red gingham, a RLPL and a corneliani and other stuff. That's enough for the next guy. Let's keep it moving.

SO PUT IN TEH CASHMERE HOBER! baldy[1].gif I do have some nice additions I am willing to add, but again its a catch 22. I'm not going to take shit and put in good ties. Personally not so into the additions from stitchy but thats just my opinion (and I was eyeing that brown linen sneaky2.gif ). Let me know what youz thinks. As i made a very valid point last time, just because its BRIONI doesnt mean its passable (it may be 4.5 inches wide and from 1972 - NOT that im saying stitchys additions were BAD. But they arent bringing up teh box to where we want/need it to be). Just my opinion. Let me know

Stitchy looking to hear your input. Teh only way this box will grow is from the bottom up, and we are teh beginning of teh list
post #74 of 1548
i will think about it over the weekend and ship monday.

ill forgo trying to get donations, looks like that was not a well received idea. both the ties aded are recent and 3.5/3.75 inches and in perfect condition, but i will reconsider my additions.
post #75 of 1548
The issue with having only 1-2 actually good ties in the box is if none are the recipient's cup of tea, despite being "good" ties. I don't know if seeking donations is the solution or not, but it's hard to think of something better. Maybe forum favorites (e.g. Panta, Kent Wang, Howard Yount, Hober, Vanda, etc.) would be into seeding the box with their merchandise?
