Thanks for the advice, but I'm trying to avoid ebay for now.
I don't pick up a lot of ties, but this vintage one was too awesome to leave behind.

Oh...yeah. Also I walked into a hole in the wall dump of a thrift store I usually avoid. It's in the ghetto and the stuff is all piled high in trash bags. Not very many clothes, and they are all moth eaten. The only pair of shoes ever saw in there looked like a dog chewed on them. As soon as I hit the door, I saw a sweet pair of Shells from across the room. Pics later tonight after clean-up.

Here's the 42 T Oxxford, but it has some damage to the lining, and is missing the bottom button! Wow, I'm a moron. It's still pretty nice, though, so if it will fit any of you gents ....
Any idea on the buttons?
And this came from Ebay today. I am so psyched! It was $43 shipped, so a little much, but, well.
