    We all have priorities in our lives. This could be children, a house in a better neighborhood, taking care of family members, etc. I do not judge people based on what kind of cars they drive. I know some idiots who live in a roach infested apartment with 4 roommates while driving a nice new Benz. I just shake my head. So what was I saying? To put it simply, it would be nice for Clags to have a nice car to go with his nice wardrobe, that's all. I started off with a 1987 Honda Civic Si hatchback in 2000 and drove that @ss into the ground...actually the front axal snapped. I live off of something called a parkway, where dickheads run red lights because they're going so fast (around 80 miles/hour) when the speed limit is 50. So I need something that will be fast enough to speed up.

    I can't tie my cappelli to save my life and people love their ties so go figure.

    I could not tie a cappelli for the life of me. It would create a tiny knot no matter what I did and the rest of the tie was just fat as heck. I will never order from him. Very rude.

    Chipp's tie a fantastic knot every single time. I'm going to be grabbing a couple more of their grenadines shortly because of how great they are to tie.

    I actually have a harder time getting a good knot out of Chipp grenadine tie's then I do others that I own. I bought a few a few years ago that are downright flimsy. I bought another just last year that feels like it has a thicker lining and that one is ok. The rest I got rid of. I asked him if they changed anything and he said no, but handling the more recent one vs the older it was obviously thicker and heavier.

    I got mine a year ago, maybe a year and a half. It has a nice hefty lining which makes it perfect for a FIH knot, a double would make it look like this guy:

    My coworker was very generous(?) and gave me a bunch of RLPL ties. He's a slim guy and cannot wear them.
    Any keepers?

    Still going strong? My girlfriend is selling her '05 TL right now because the car is falling apart. Then again, that could be caused by her horrible driving.

    Yikes. I have had zero engine/transmission/drivetrain problems *knocks on wood*. Fixed something with the AC I think? I don't remember. Other than that, just routine maintenance. Granted I've had it since high school, so I did not have daily commute miles for several years. It's at ~110k right now.

    The blue pindot is not RLPL but has a Q (made in England). Anyone know what it is?
