I got a few 3 piece tweeds too from the weekend. Who knows when I will have them photo'ed. In the process of packing 45 packages tonight....so.
Enter Spoo with his 95 packages or more.
This is going to be a difficult challenge....in fact I know I can't do it. I am going to attempt to not do any "major" thrifting for about the next 4 weeks. I was completely out of room and overflowing before this weekends ginormous haul. This means no standard Wednesday loops or epic Friday loops. I will probably still go to the locals here on my lunch break, because I will go nuts if I don't.
What this means for the thread.....Nothing. I will continue to post pics of the backlog of items.
Ties are all for personal wear so I'll read your opinion then respectfully ignore it.
I liked the Hermes too. I should have just taken the chance for .99 cents.
And I just got the one orphan! It was real nice fabric and had enough texture to it that it will work on it's own. I'll post when I get it back. I wish I had the problem of finding too many sport coats but the whole 46XL monkey arm thing makes me not too worried.
The "feel" test led me to this. I am not familiar with the maker, but real nice wool and well made from what I can tell.

My nostalgic finds of the day, a USA made Izod Lacoste. Had the exact colored one in high school in the 80's.
Had a similar pair of the these too! Pair of USA union made boy scout pants complete with brass buckled belt. I can't remember what the brass attachment was used for though.
I wont claim to be an expert on this, I can only talk from what I've seen. I think spoo might be able to clarify this. I have personally seen most tie labels with two front legs on the horse and some with one. I think made in France is found on the heavy silk ties not the type steven is showing. The made in france would be on the back of the skinny blade. Also on the tie itself on the thin blade the horse has one leg on all of mine.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
