    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I think if I was selling a tie at $22, which was already reduced substantially from the original price, I'd reject that offer too. Personally I think it's fugly, but honestly, if you want it, pay the $22! It's a bargain...

    That seller purchased that tie from eBay at 18.39. He realized he can't get anything for it, and is selling it above purchase price to break even.

    Those ugly talbott seven folds can be had under 15$ usually. And they usually won't sell for more than that unless they are recent, vibrant, or they sit for a few months. Since the numbering on this specific tie is worn, I would expect the hardship in a decent sale.

    I guess I was light headed from my recent sale of a used RT 7-fold

    To be honest, I can't recall ever seeing a Robert Talbott tie I didn't hate.

    Actually +0.95

    RT for [Insert independent men's store name here] can make some nice regimentals and other conservative styles, but most purely private label stuff is indeed awful.
