    I'm disappointed. All these heavy hitters here and no one will out bid my last offer?

    UBR, can't disagree with that either. The treasure trove for this year's auction is something to behold. I'm going to try to sell something today...what time is this auction closing, GMT? [​IMG]

    Up next is a package from Styleforum favorite Epaulet. The package includes two items. First, a MTO hopsack sportcoat from Southwick:

    The most versatile piece of menswear you can own, in hopsack and with brown horn, MoP, or metal buttons so everyone knows it's not an orphaned suit jacket. You choose your pocket style, button orientation, etc.. You can even add elbow patches if you want. Half-canvassed, made in the USA. Retail value $750.

    The winner of this auction will also be able to take his or her pick from Epaulet's collection of pocket squares. Personally I'd probably go with this one:

    But you can't go wrong with white linen either:

    Retail value on these ranges from $25 to $65.

    And, of course, as with every auction, you'll also get the satisfaction of knowing that your winning bid will go to benefit a great charity, the Ronald McDonald House. This auction will end tomorrow, Thursday 12/5, at 12pm ET. We'll start off at $250, which surely won't last long. Happy bidding.

    edit: I've got two MTO sportcoats from Southwick via Epaulet already and the quality is second to none. Don't hesitate to bid on this package!

    Man, I don't know whether I'm relieved or disappointed. Some new business today, almost in time to increase my bid, but no cheques signed yet and I got confused about when 12ET is anyway...maybe you saved me from myself...that bag, though! Well done, Surg!

    Still. I could at least just man up and say "$550". :)

    Even if you're among the many SFers that already has a single breasted navy sportcoat taken care of, this is a good opportunity to get yourself a DB.
