This would be a very Noodle Thread thing to go down if this actually goes down. A group buy on an eBay tie lot. Ridiculous.

@sugarbutch

 

and...uhhh...whoever else wears Polo ties.

 

 

I'd be down for picking these three up for around $75 provided they're in excellent shape.

 

The burgundy RLPL is nice, but I have several burgundy solids, so I figure someone else should take that one.

Must be nice. :inlove:

That RLPL is purple not burgundy. Don't see any red tinge in it. Sure you monitor's calibrated?

Clags, Polo is great for striped ties. A notch above your typical brooks brothers

Logo doesn't really bother me. They were $20 for the lot and my jacket stays closed so I don't think it'll be an issue. The other ones were $8. I figured the medallion one wouldn't be everyones cup of tea but I like it and think I can work it into some fits. The grey and blue stripe tie seemed like a decent staple so I kopped that too.

My ties up for grabs.

I will take this down so that it doesn't conflict with B&S policy.

I have a Turnbull&Asser

And a 6 folds RED Sam Hober FINA Grenadine tie.

 

PM me if you want either of these.

You guys could easily *PROFIT* off of these ties, and still be able to keep a few that you want.

Assuming the lot goes for no more than $450, that comes to around $10.50 per tie.

Keep the ties you want, sell these rest for $20 shipped each.

Ofc, but Clags' post is helpful to establish and upper limit of our bid. Max we are willing to spend is $25 a tie? Actual price paid will be whatever the winning bid is divided by the number of ties + shipping.

 

I would like a couple repps and clubs of whatever everyone else doesn't want (Just please don't stick me with garbage. :P). I will flip the rest of what everyone doesn't want. Sound good?

Don't you think the price would go to a point where it is no longer that easy to flip them? I can also see the more unpopular colours, such as bright teal, pink and green going for less than $20.

Seeing as the auction ends in a few hours, has zero watchers, and is only being bid on by a handful of users, I don't think there's a high likelihood of it suddenly rocketing to $450+

Seller has poor pictures. That's part of the reason they're not selling too well. Use this to your advantage

@luv2breformed what ties are you staking out?

Though JRD is a much more experienced hand at this, these are the prices I imagine being able to easily move those Polos

It's like when I go to SuitSupply. They don't bring the "Long" sizes so when I try one and say "It's too short" they answer me "That's how everybody is usin g it right now" I politly answer "Well, I don't want to look like everybody else, I don't want to look like a woman, I don't want to look ridiculou, I want to look classic but with my touch of style. That's the difference between my style and fashun". :lol:
