Happy Birthday, Wes!
Very nice! I'd say late 70's to early 80's. They were pretty popular to wear on the street too during this time, so a lot of companies made them. Sears made damn nice stuff up until the mid-80's when a lot of places really took a nose-dive in quality. It really made me sad when we were in California this past December for Christmas. We went to this monstrosity called Sears Grand to find a couple last-minute Christmas gifts. I'll tell you one thing, Grand it was not. Never been so disappointed in a store in my whole life. The store was literally set up like a K-Mart or Target. I hadn't been in a Sears in over a decade so I was really disappointed to see the quality of clothing had tanked even more than the last time I was in there. Check-out lines like a grocery store. What?! To top it off, they didn't even have gift boxes! They said that store had never done gift boxes. Absolutely ridiculous. I told the cashier that I sincerely hoped the company would soon rediscover their founding principles and values for the sake of their business. It seemed he really didn't care too much.
Only one stop today. First Battistoni anything. Not available. Also hit up a local men's store that was having a sale. Picked up Marcoliani gray cashmere socks and a house label dreidel tie. Both 50% off.

Lovin' the tie!
