What's the typical cost to ship a tie through USPS? Do you use a box or envelope?
I use Priority Mail Small Flat Rate Box, costs $5.15 to ship. Some folks use padded envelopes, but I worry about the tie getting creased during transit. Also, we have a thread dealing with these issues in detail here.
edit: dang, Shoe beat me to it!
edit edit: technically, he didn't say he had sold it on ebay. Perhaps he is sending a tie to another forum member?
You could always contact Barbour. They seem to offer a multitude of repair services for their products. I bet they might be able to replace it for you/ Though if you're thinking of flipping the jacket, the new collar might take a serious bite out of your profits, which (depending on severity of the fade) might not be impacted that much otherwise.
That's nice! Finally hit the BB at the outlet here. 70% off the 346 stuff, I passed on almost everything, until I came across a mainline for no reason marked 1/2 off... on the 70% off rack so... mainline 85% off, yep. Funny story, I was in thrifting mode, I take the coat off the hanger at the counter, the checkout girl says, leave that on, we'll package it that on the hanger. I was all excited when I got to keep the hanger! Oh yeah... retail.
Hey fellas, I have a costume designer looking for a white or gold (preferably gold) shawl lapel dinner jacket (ideally dupioni silk, but not required) in size 38 to 42. Nothing expensive or fancy really, she will do the alterations herself and dye the jacket gold if need be. PM me if you have something or can pick up something. I will hook you up to sell directly to the buyer.
If only I could find sportcoats the way you guys do, man.
