    FTFY. I think the laughter from people who see him holding this sign will get him a few high fives and dollars thrown his way for future purchases.

    This reminds of the poster who wanted to know how to clean the red X off the RL tags for a suit he bought. When he was called out on it, he claimed it was solely because his girlfriend prefered that the labels on the inside of his jacket not have X's on them.

    There was a homeless women in my former town who had a sign reading: "Help me buy a house in Blackhawk." Blackhawk is an expensive but tacky Bay Area residential development. Her signed worked much as you suggest.

    theres no way you could sell USED ties as New in box. If they were new, why would the tags be off...? even though I keep good care of my ties (especially Hermes) they cant be passed off as New.

    Sell empty boxes on eBay? I must have ten times as many boxes piled up at my office as I just found in my dresser drawer (no tie boxes OP, just scarves, pocket squares and bowties). If I sell all of them maybe I can buy a new scarf and bowtie the next time I go to New York.

    As long as you don't mind contributing to fraud go right ahead.

    PM member Hermes Simplex. He may have what you want. Be forewarned that whatever you get (catch) from him will stick with you for life. It will be a gift that keeps giving.

    If you want to risk burglary charges, try their dumpsters at night. Be sure to wear all black. Accessorize with black eye makeup, gloves, sack, balaclava and flashlight. Leave your cel phone at home so they can't track you and be prepared to run. Have bus fare ready and know the route scheduling for faster getaway *(see disclaimer below).

    At a market in the far east I once saw a bag of little alligator patches for sale. Instantly lacosteify your whole wardrobe!

    Despite the cache'. Storing ties in flat boxes is not a recommended procedure. I had a local clothier give me 24 generic boxes: 4"x 4"x4". They fit nicely in a drawer set aside for ties, and most importantly they allow you to roll the tie to store it. This prevents creases and preserves the body of the tie.

    why not search one on ebay or amazon? :)
    I think the box is useless, but if you buy a birkin, you will get a box.
