E-thrifted some T&A Ties. Guy mentioned that a few had extremely minimal wear and most felt new. These six were okay and there were six more that were just completely useless. Oh well. I'll still do okay on them.

Thank god i stopped on those then. They all looked good in the pictures. I messaged her and asked if I could just buy all right away when she originally put them up she said yes and would sell at $2 a piece. I said yes then she never replied again for 5 days. I was like OK well I'll bid there value then it went to much for me.

Anyone ever seen this on a seven fold? This is Turnbull & Asser...actually genius, I hate how seven folds tend to fall open. Small blade has its own button and loop too.

What do you mean by Alec Baldwin bump?

I've seen that on a Ricci as well.
That's to button to your shirt I think so it doesn't flop around

Yeah I'm pretty much 0 for 5 when it comes to tie lot purchases. I think a lot of them were haphazardly slimmed too. The stitching was really shoddy looking on a lot of them. Here's some of the "you would have to look EXTREMELY CLOSE to notice damage." Good call backing out.

I'm not sure...may be able to use it that way, but the button has its own loop attached to the other blade. I think it's to keep the seven folds together. Why would both the little blade and the big blade have that and still have a keeper? You beat me on experience for sure so I'll defer if you feel strongly :embar:

By using the phrase "Low Key", you're making me not take you seriously.

The photo is hilarious, but who gives a shit. Some entertainment for you all wink.gif

I think you're right for 2 reasons. No high end mfg would expect you to put 2 buttons in the same hole and how can you ensure that tie button will coorespond with your shirt button hole?
