^not a prob, let me know if they're any other brands you need a little breif on:

zegna ties- depends on the quality you want, Grey label ones are the best but older. the newer ones are thin and way too shiny to be wearable (XXX Ermengildo zegna ) going sideways on the blade.
however the recent zegna ties that have couture XXX are built alot like the older grey label ones

Vineyard vines ties- only if not made in china

hermes- only if real, spread at wide end, look for loop of string, on non woven: lining should amtch base color of silk, skinny end of tie has hermes, made in france and the call number style number of tie.
woven ties: thick HERMES ` Paris keeper, not just logo

pass if its ugly, i've passed on a few of these, ebay has been flooded with hermes ties recently. so only buy it if it suits you/your needs or the needs of your forum members.


if you find something thats ridiculously nice, its common courtesy to offer it here for cost/low price before you go to sell it on the B&S or fleabay or w/e medium you have. Good Karma goes along way in life icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Good to know. Recently, I've found one NWT. It's very shiny.

Sounds good. I'll keep that in mind.
Again, thanks for the list.

I don't know that it's "common courtesy," but it is a nice gesture. I have, however, experienced instances of not having favors returned, which sucks. So, if you do it, do it with the expectation of getting nothing in return down the road, which avoids disappointments. Naming names isn't cool, of course, but let's just say this isn't a land of all butterflies and puppy dogs where Skittles fall from the sky before the rainbow comes out. Most folks, fortunately, are pretty good, though.

Maybe the Charlie's Angel's director is branching out.

Unfortunadamente, Typhoid's generosity just didn't work out. (For future reference, not his fault at all. Great guy.) So, still being a relatively poor bastard, I am still in the market for a white, spread collar shirt for my wedding.
Things I'm looking for:
- Solid White
- Plain weave
- 15/15.5-32/33
- Spread collar (Think: PRL Regent)
- Must iron**
- Cotton
Examples:
- Recent BB (Purple label, Golden Fleece, Makers and Merchants)
- PRL Regent, RLPL
- Brioni/Isaia/etc
You get the idea. Thanks a lot, everyone. Ya'll have been quite nice about this, and I appreciate your patience.

BUY IT

can't say i blame them. They are a manufacturer not a retailer. They would likely tell you who they sell to, so you could buy a smaller quantity from them.

I know, I know. I actually ventured out to the stores today to look for myself, and it's a virtual desert out there (granted, it's Monday, and the vultures take their pickings on Saturday. Plus it's summer).

I have a different one saved that is exactly the same as this. Trust me, I liked the advice!

Just picked up a cool Southwick Shawl Tuxedo. Medium Weight, 1 Button. Approximate guesstimated size 44R 38/30. Actually very close to fitting me, and probably will in a couple more weeks.

No joke, my head exploded when I saw it on the rack, followed by a second larger explosion when I saw the size tag. cloud.gif

aren't you a sz38 or so? EU 52 = US 40, i'm sure you can get that thing tailored down to fit.
