Very well made, very unknown on eBay.

I've posted this find before, but I need to verify that this is indeed a EZ couture tie. It doesn't say couture but the XXX stitching signifies this, correct?

I had to do this same line of research awhile back, and, yes, XXX = couture.

No idea about resale value but I'd wear the heck out of that.

Thank you, I had researched it a little bit a couple weeks ago, and I also got the same answer.

 

The reason I ask is because a potential ebay customer contacted (bitched at) me claiming that it wasn't couture so I politely explained to him that it was indeed (and explained why). Didn't work, he claims that I "have no idea what I'm talking about." Ahhhh, the joys of dealing with eBay. 

 

Anyways, thank you!! Just wanted to make sure I "know what I'm talking about."

Needless to say they are still sitting there

Not a bad price for a personal pickup.

 

But yeah, you made the right call.

Shoutout to @schmidtdalton13 for a great trade on some Bally treads. I appreciate you, man!

Went to Dallas this last weekend. Got mostly skunked but I have to say what I saw definitely had promise. Some ripped Brioni suits, a few Savile Row pieces in an odd small size not worth the risk for me, and one gem - a super 160s Loro Piana suit made by Isaia (NA).

So my best buddy asked me to be his best man next year (august 2015). He's getting married in Portugal...

 

Leaves me one year to find the most BADASS tux ever... (and for extremely warm weather? :stirpot:)

 

PM me boys ;)

Silk DB summer suit, vintage Oxxford. Seems like it needs some cleaning. Someone make them an offer!

If this ivory DB DJ I gambled on with Linda turns out to fit, I may have a SB ivory DJ for you . . .
