I got mine a year ago, maybe a year and a half. It has a nice hefty lining which makes it perfect for a FIH knot, a double would make it look like this guy:

My coworker was very generous(?) and gave me a bunch of RLPL ties. He's a slim guy and cannot wear them.

Any keepers?

Third from the right's not bad IMHO.

2nd from right imo is a keeper as well

Looks sporty but it's really just a strong V4, and the 2014 and 2015 models are getting great reviews everywhere.

0.9% financing helps, too.

I believe you mean I4...

For you, second and third from the right.

Still going strong? My girlfriend is selling her '05 TL right now because the car is falling apart. Then again, that could be caused by her horrible driving.

Yikes. I have had zero engine/transmission/drivetrain problems *knocks on wood*. Fixed something with the AC I think? I don't remember. Other than that, just routine maintenance. Granted I've had it since high school, so I did not have daily commute miles for several years. It's at ~110k right now.

1: spoo to sell for you.

2-3: send to spoo, he can pull them off or sell them.

4-5: keepers.

6: spoo to sell for you.

Spoo will take all my suits too...

The blue pindot  is not RLPL but has a Q (made in England). Anyone know what it is?

Yes, that would be about the time frame for my most recent purchased one.  better than handful I had bought earlier, and also .25" wider.  so a better knot.  but if i were to buy anymore grenadines (I'm debating) I'd buy a Hober prometeo to have all three weaves.  I like the grossa better anyway.

So I got a pair of carmina suede string loafers, but they arrived with one of the strings broken. And now they are sold out everywhere (I need a 7.5uk) I am probably going to return them and get a pair of meermin string loafers, but what color would be best? I like the Navy, but my carminas were snuff. And sizing, the carminas were tight, but handsewn which would stretch out to a comfortable fit. Will the meermin loafers behave the same? For reference I'm a 9us/8uk and took an 8uk in carminas soller last.

I have a ton of stuff I'll be parting with when I return to the US. The new stuff I'll be putting on B&S. The stuff I've worn, I'm debating either giving it away or sending it to Spoo. I suspect I'll just give it away to people I know (in real life, not here. You folks don't need freebies :bored:)

 

Noddles, those ties are yours to do with what you well. But I've never liked the idea of selling gifts. I do like the idea of you sending 2 and 3 to Holdfast for the cost of shipping.
