Sounds like a very thoughtful gift from Mrs Clags. Very Springy. Will be looking for it in upcoming fits.

And wooden ducks are a traditional wedding gift purchased for a bride and groom in Korea. So super appropriate.

Also, another flippable tie lot:

I like this lot much better than other one. Might just bid on it.

^^ wrong thread.

Are there SF family suits that come even close to NMWA Formosa suits in terms of quality and value? I have to wait for the next batch of NMWA suits to come in.

Not SF family, but Sartoria Partenopea has a similar style as Formosa. I'm very happy with mine. They retail at about $2500, but can be found for as low as $650 online.

I've become highly interested in eidos. Good value to quality ratio. Perhaps a bit too modern for you? YMMV

Don't be in a hurry to buy anything. You are looking for particular features - Extended shoulders and wide lapels. Put your money aside and just wear what you have for now.

And if you want to know highly rated RTW suits then browse this very useful thread

Edmorel (Panta Clothing) certainly deserves a mention.

This is something close to what I have been looking for. 

Light grey.

Wide lapels. 

Peak Lapels.

What do you plan on doing with the ties after winning the bid?

post #6854 of 37396
Burn them and post a video of it here devil.gif

Honestly though, send them to the dry cleaner and wear them in good health, not at the same time though.

Edit: Might share if anyone's interested?

Are you keeping them for yourself? If not, a group buy might be smart, otherwise we'd be driving up the price for no reason. I'm interested in the navy with red on the right of the 4th pic and one of the lighter blue ties.
