Photos taken of the box. Prepare for uploads gents.

Also, the idea we had (stitch and I) was to send the entirety of the TSB to Spoo (minus one tie that stitch seeded, that no one took in two rounds that he'd like back) for luxeswapping and then take the proceeds from that and buy as many ties as possible from YHN to reboot the box. Those who have participated in round 2 will have first right of joinage. We'll likely cap at 8.

The next round would not likely start until August (to give luxeswapping a chance to happen and the tie procurement, also to allow everyone to get re-energized about their potential swaps!).

I'm going to try and take an organic approach to the box, meaning, that swappage will be done face to face whenever possible. I hope to get the ties from YHN in person from Rob in NY, bring them to Cal, meet up with Atlas, let him ship to MyMil (if interested) who can ship to DerekS, who then ships to Stitch (and if Stitch can get to NY, hold a NY TSB meet up with Red and Shoes).

For this round, we have:

ThinkDerm
Atlas
MyMil
Derek
Stitch
Red
Shoes

How does that sound to all?

The current contents of the TSB to be luxeswapped (except for the tie Stitch is recalling)

The remaining pocketsquares from the last round will remain with the box for potential swappage.

Understand your point. This is about transparency and to show what was in the box and what will be sent to LuxeSwap. Spoo also wanted to see what was in the box before sending it over.

The point of buying YHN with the Luxeswapped funds is that YHN sponsored the last round by donating two ties, and we should support their wonderful start up. Let's see what revenue the TSB brings.

!!!!BIG THANKS TO SPOO AND LUXESWAP!!!!

spoo has agreed to sell the TSB contents pro-bono. so the box will get all the proceeds after pp and ebay fees. this should be a nice chunk of change and we can really amp up the box.


as a token of thanks, everybody go buy some stuff from LS, right now!!!

I dont disagree and I am all for supporting Rob and his awesome startup icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif I just think we should ALSO buy a few Cappellis to spice up the box (although a box full of YHN isnt to shabby either!!!! fistbump.gif )

AND I AM CONFIRMING: IN FOR NEXT ROUND nod[1].gif

i hope not, but only time will time. ambiguity is is the mother of excitement.

Rad. I'm in! I agree that some non-YHNs in the mix would be nice for the sake of variety and quantity, if there's a particularly good sale going on. I also fully support the notion of showing Rob some love for generously sponsoring the last round.
