When will they be added to your site for sale????
Hmm. Tomorrow maybe? We're trying to edit the photos right now, but it will take a while to do all 17.   I suppose they're "for sale" NOW, actually, but the webmaster (Chuck) is a little behind.  (Just don't tell him I called him a little behind.)

I will have to save one until I find out what Kabbaz thinks the current 7-fold to cashmere bourbon drinking shirt exchange rate is... I mean the #&%$* Euro is causing me pain but I think that bast... wonderful sweet man Alex may make me cry. Does it come with bourbon for $2400 Alex or do I have to fill my own flask? How big is that pocket anyhow? Can you custom fit the inside pocket to match my flask? How bout a pocket to fit my little 2-cigar travel case?

I love that navy/blue tie on the right, that one is awesome, the blue/pink herringbone is nice too.

Chuck - you know my pricing has at times marc'd some of the more contentious posts here - and now you're going to have everyone thinking that I'm overpriced. The Cashmere Bourbon Drinkin' Shirt is only $2250, not $2400. Insofar as to how what fits where, it depends upon the color of the cashmere you select and whether it has a pattern. If you'll give me a short while, I'll post the cashmere color swatches so you can select something which coordinates with your new collection. Rate of exchange seems like about 2 dozen ties or so. So ... Since I will end up owning most of your remaining available stock, you can just send everyone who wants one to me. Be nice guys - I'm going to have all the herringbones and all the paisley jacquards. In reality, though, before I go off trading willy-nilly, I think I'll run over to Countess Mara, Hermes, and Talbot to see what their exchange rate might be. Can I get back to you later? Notes: 1] Willy-nilly has nothing whatsoever to do with any former presidential proclivities, so don't start blaming me for that again 2] I'm not really going to post the Cashmere Colors so you can select. I'm just doing it so you can eat your heart out.

LOL... by all means please check. If anyone else has 90 different 7-fold patterns I need to know right away. Be sure to write off the mileage - you'll be driving for some time.

Congrats on the cream paisley Chuck. My fiance really loves it. Apparently, it is the only fashion thing I have shown her that she has gotten excited about. She says, "it's the perfect wedding tie". I think I may have gotten one before everyone else on the forum staked their claim Oh well, it looks like it will be normal tie for me.

Holy crap. I'll throw Jill into the deal - she doesn't listen worth a damn but she's awfully cute. Seriously - I'm looking at my antelope suede shirt and thinking about using it to wash the car now... This is gonna cost me some serious neckware.

Alex~ Can you make one with - how shall I say?? - darts? I'll "pay" whatever Chuck offers, and raise him one tie.

Stag - lol... confession time: When Jill designed this one I said "Solid cream? Yeah right, what will that look like?" You guys realize that your votes have basically said "Chuck knows diddly, listen to Jill"...right? Help a brother out.

Rather help a sister out. Darts ... coming right up. Chuck - You've been out-designed and now out-cuted. Don't wash the car yet. You're still going to need soething to wear the way I figure it. And I'm still going to get all of the ties.

As long as the pink/blue herringbone was your idea, I love it.

Jill also designed "that green tie". Makes you even, I think.

No, the pink and blue hbone was mine too.  But you just HAD to bring up the "that green tie", didn't you Nick. Turkey.   LOL. Actually, I think the green tie's going to have its day in the sun though. Turned out to be a better seller than we expected.  Only have a dozen or so left and St. Patty's day IS coming.  What better choice?

A black silver paisley as well? Count me in for that too. That way, I can sort of adhere to Mantons rules - just by switching ties between day and night. Awesome, just awesome. Sorry Chuck, you owe Jill dinner. I suggest Chez Henri, just around the block from my bachelor pad, when you visit Boston.
