    Let's see if we can get a little more action going here. Someone is going to be walking around with one of the best hard briefs in the world before Christmas. Or, you can send it to me. I'll use it to carry sandwiches.

    Special shout out to Ed and the good folks at Panta Clothing! My package arrived yesterday and everything is great.

    This is my fourth Panta tie and it's superb as usual but the pants are something else. I had hemmed and hawed at the pants on their site in the past and gone back and forth on actually buying a pair but the auction give me a good reason to finally execute the deal and I'm glad I did. I opted for the khaki Donegal tweed and they are fantastic - so soft and surprisingly lightweight for a tweed. Now I just need to wait to get them back from the tailor! :fu:

    Okay... back to your regularly scheduled auctions.

    Great choice, MP. You have excellent taste in legwear.

    Lets get the action revved up on this auction again, guys. This is a gorgeous and unique briefcase delivered right to your doorstep. The current bid is a steal for this piece.

    I love Paddington Bear. I actually spent my earliest years in Cambridge, England, where I was kicked out of a prestigious preschool for conforming to proper English pre-school decorum. I apparently chased the class rabbit all over the room, jumping over desks.

    So, bid on this Globe-trotter briefcase, coming from the home of my early disgrace. And if you really want to remind me of my early station, you can even send it too me.

    Cheers,

    Fok,

    Well done, @ls7. Hope you enjoy your new briefcase. Thanks again to Bespoke England for their generous donation.

    New auction will be announced shortly.

    The next auction is a package from Kent Wang. Kent has developed a large and dedicated Styleforum following over the years with a collection of classically designed basics made with quality construction at reasonable prices. He has donated to the auction a package of:

    1) A tweed jacket (value $495):

    2) Your choice of two scarves from Kent Wang's scarf collection (retail $125 each). Here are a couple in cashmere I particularly like:

    That's a total retail value of $745. Let's start the bidding at $300.

    This auction will end at noon ET tomorrow, unless there has been a bid within the last ten minutes, at which point it will continue until there are ten minutes without a bid. Bid in increments of at least $10.

    Let the games begin.

    I guess I'll start with 400
    Question: if you did mtm with kent wang before, can he make the jacket mtm with same measurements as previous jackets or is it just going to be a stock size?

    All of time and space, everything that ever was or
    I was going to ask the same since he only has regulars in stock. No shorts or longs. Are his MTM adjustments allowed for this auction?
