Thanks man. My mannequin for my auctions is also well knotted. (both shirt and tie are Charvet)

I tie a wicked knot, trust.

I rarely use collar stays, if you can believe.

Definitely, and Bvlgari ties are pretty insane. The silk is like sandpaper and it weighs about a pound, right?
BTW, I stopped into a Marshalls today and saw a whole bunch of Ferragamo ties for (a ridiculous) $99.99. Also a whole rack full of Brooks Brothers tweeds for $249 each. Really, really nice ones though.
