    NORE, go. They have so many good ties. Alot of grenadine, mostly striped variations though. Shantung out the wazoo, wools, POW, etc.

    Of course its tempting NORE, its the best sale I've seen in NYC in awhile.

    It sounds like the only items in limited quantities might be the sportscoats. I grabbed a 44, one size up from my normal 42. The cut was pretty slim and I anticipate wearing it with flannels and perhaps a vneck or crew sweater underneath - the cashmere gave the fabric some heft. The sleeves were very long and had working buttonholes, so alterations will need to be done from the shoulder.

    One note on the ties - the grenadines were slim. The owner said it was only a 1mm difference between the thin and non-thin ties (8mm vs 9mm), but it looked like a bigger difference to my eye. That being said, I got a striped grenadine, untipped lining - the patterns and textures really do look nice. I think I'll be wearing it underneath a lot of knits, so I don't think width will matter much. FYI.

    I just got back also after only getting two ties. Sc's are actually 295, not 275. Still a great deal. I'd be willing to proxy for a 10 percent markup after taxes and shipping. I think that's reasonable.

    Also a good selection of crew neck sweaters (mostly fair isles)

    I gave in (damnit gyasih!) but was able to show restraint and left with the one tie that spoke to me-something I have been looking for for a while.



    Will post a pic later, I'm wearing my purchase out tonite, but for now:

    There are literally thousands of ties. To put the pics you've see in perspective, each of those what 6 x 30" boxes have about 50 ties in them. I usually won't spend $65 on a tie but I think it was worth it, a year-end gift for myself. I saw one or two that just might fill holes in my current tie holdings but as usual I dumb out and forget what I have at home in times like this. I need to check inventory and then return...

    NORE: I saw you there. I dug your tie. I was holding about 6 of them and settled on one. Blue raw silk with very thin red/white diagonal.

    On the one hand I'm super pissed I'm not in NYC. On the other hand, thank God I'm not in NYC.
