    Full disclosure, Wes and I have a friendly ugly tie selling competition. We each thrifted each other the ugliest tie we could find, and we each had to list it and see where it went.


    Soporific?

    Honestly, Spoo sucked at the picking out of my tie. lol...probably a power play.

    I'm thinking he didn't fully understand the concept of, "most ridiculous tie". I'm sure the next one will be ridiculouser.

    Also if you think the peacock tie was wild, wait till you see what he gets on the next round. hehehe

    I think this "contest" should be expanded to all interested parties. Liven things up around here and such... I know I'll be looking for some obnoxious ties.

    LOL, we weren't voting, but I'll take it, cuz that's probably all I'll get. Thanks.

    I looked at this and thought it was a solid listing with good photos, except there isn't a photo of the size tag that I could see.

    So you listed it as a M, but in your heading you listed it as S-M with measurements provided.

    I think you can fight it with your photos and measurements. I would have said this was a Size 39 vest (more small than medium).

    I think you still have to call ebay and get your objections on the record.

    Thanks for the responses gents. I did call eBay and provided my objections. The primary issue is there is no size tag. If there is a tagged size that would be a piece of cake lol.

    I'm guessing you didn't give arm hole measurements when you sold it right?
