also, there is nothing wrong with buying anything at full retail as long as its worth buying.

I don't have the word "discount" in my dictionary.

Learn it, fool. Then you get two suits instead of one suit. And buy the suit, not the label. Nobody can see the label when you're wearing the suit, so unless you tell everyone what it's called (and how much you paid for it),* all they will know is whether it fits you and how the cloth looks. Which are the only things that matter, so go and try something on.


*Which would make you a douchebag

I'd like to discuss a tie brand that is woefully underrated.

That tie brand is Holliday & Brown. I own an H&B and find the quality to be on par with Drakes ties. Made in England from amazing silks. Soft lining.

Here are a couple H&B's I found online today

@jungleroller, if you haven't gotten any burgundy neats yet, these might be good pickups

Super pissed about missing out on these. $31 bucks for a lot of 10 ties! what the hell?

Moral of the story: keep checking the bay for H&B ties!!!

Thanks for the heads up.  I nabbed this one.  I have a similar one to the other red one.

 

....This is turning out to be an expensive February and I have yet to finalize Valentines day stuff for the wifey.  At least I'll look a little better even if we're just eating Ramen.  :D

^^ That is a really lovely tie.  I think I enquired about one of @Pingson's peachy ties a while back and if I recall correctly he said it was from this maker.

 

That lot for $31 would have been Noodles' perfect starter kit!  Nice stuff.

Yeah seriously kicking myself for not thinking of setting a saved search earlier. baldy[1].gif

However, some of those ties look like they have some... uh... jizzm stains. So maybe it wasn't such a bad miss.

Here's my lone H&B tie. Shows that a brighter red tie can work if you have the right type of silk.

Love pairing this with a navy SC icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

It is not necessary to share every thought in your head.  Just saying.

Thoughts on this tie?

 

It's another Holiday and Brown

^ Don't like that one.

Too shiny.
Don't like paisley in general
If you're going for a paisley, should be a more earth tone (greenish) than blue
