Any pics of actual purchases?
when you called did they say if they'd ship?
Here you go
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 went and will be going back. Got a silk/wool scarf, raw silk scarf and a pocket square.
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.
mSart, Pm'd you on the proxy offer. Thanks
I knew I was followed! I tried circling the block to no avail. Oh well.
They are willing to hold merchandise, they said you'd have to send an email to their info email address and ask the manager if they can ship off site though since its an on site tent sale. I ended up proxying instead.
So - are there fair isles?
Ugh! Mayeb saved me a trip too....but they still have tons of ties and squares, yes? (so no...so i don't drop cash)
Tons of squares, ties, beautiful scarves, plenty for you to spend money on They have 40Rs left, and it sounds like all of the SCs are really slim fitting, so it may require just a touch of tailoring but what OTR coat doesn't?
Anyone planning to pick up a bunch of the ties for sale on the forum? I'd gladly pay a B&S markup for silk prints/silk twills, such as the navy pindot in the picture.
