    Yeah, he owes me money too!

    Chuck's giving away a 50% off voucher. Maybe this is to compensate for not sending you the ties earlier on.

    I got it too and was just about to post the same question. I subscribed to the mailing list in the email and received an automated response with a 50% off coupon good through the end of the year. The email was signed "Jill" which I believe is Chuck's wife. He made some great ties. But I'm kinda reticent after my last experience years ago. I wonder if they're starting it back up or just clearing old stock.

    looks like he'll be owing 2 ties now to everyone instead of 1

    Are they back in business? Wow......

    Website appears to be updated...


    back in business sure. after the sf bailout.

    Yes, I watched the Carlo Franco thing start up and crash... how long ago was it? It does appear Chuck and Jill are trying to give it another shot. If they are trying to revive this business, their apparent strategy of sticking to their besmirched brand name surprises me. I don't think you could buy a cup of coffee with $5.00 and the Carlo Franco name. This situation still boggles the imagination.

    What bothers me is that none of this "buddies" on AAAC ever came out an admitted that guy was a fraud.

    IIRC correctly, 'Carlo Franco' was the name of Chuck's grandpa....perhaps they didnt want to turf it for emotional reasons - but ya, from a business viewpoint, I agree with you.

    According to those at AAAC, Carlo Franco still has some outstanding orders from 2005.

    I can't wait to place my order for a $150 tie.[​IMG]
