By the way, any plans to post pics of those Ferragamo ties?

Ok just so I understand 17 inches measured from the center of the button to the far edge of the button hole would mean that its a 16.5 neck?

Regarding the Ferragamo ties. I ll be taking pictures all day tomorrow so they sound be up by tomorrow night smile.gif ...Sorry for the delay

On the topic of Ferragamos, I have a NOS up on the 'bay. Didn't sell last week. If you happen to be an interested Ferragamo-lover, feel free to PM an offer.

I would say 17. The size 16 shirts I buy from Brooks Brothers measure 16.5 when new but eventually shrink to 16. I assume your shirts, since they are preowned, have shrunk about as much as they are going to, so I'd probably call them 17 but explain how the measurement was taken. If they were brand new, then shrinking would be more likely and I might call them 16.5.

The ones I've seen in the wild looks pretty well made. But it didn't fit me so well and I wasn't so sure the resell values on them.

Thanks for the info! I ran into a few while thrifting. They looked ok but were over priced for my comfort.

I hope you guys are shooting tethered into Lightroom or Aperture. If not, I suspect it would speed up your process considerably.

The strip of fabric is so you can remove the buttons and use studs instead. These have come with my tuxedo shirts - not sure when you'd wear studs on a yellow shirt. . . .

Thanks Chet. I still dont know what I am going to write. I am thinking 16.5 to be on the safe side but we ll see, anyone else know?

Dogfish.

I guess a buyer would be unhappier about the neck being tighter than expected that they would about it being slightly looser than expected. Probably a good idea.

My better half got a dress of hers for free at a fashion event, just for tweeting @ her. True story.

 

Found nothing lately, so doing a vicarious brag.

Ditto for me. Same starting price too. A few watchers but nothing panned out.

Basically you can have the camera connected to the computer via usb/firewire while you shoot, and the images will be saved directly to your computer. You'd also be able to control all the camera settings from the computer as well. If you're the type to move the camera around a bunch while shooting (different angles, closer, etc) it'll be a bit of a pain unless you 1. Have a really long usb cable, or 2.You have a camera that accepts a wireless file transmitter (but if you had that item, you wouldn't be asking haha).
