    URL didn't work for me initially. Try Googling it and clicking through that way. That solved the problem.

    EDIT: Server is definitely swamped. Pages take forever to load.

    Drake's site always seems to go down when a sale is announced.

    Somehow $105 for a ties doesn't scream "sale" to me. During the last sale when they were down to $80 I bought a bunch, but I'm having trouble jumping over that three-digit wall.

    +1. Not to mention the personal-time opportunity costs associated with actually trying to stay on the site long enough to purchase. :plain: Perhaps there will be further reductions. In the meantime I'll wait with bated breath.

    Remember to deduct VAT (20%) when shipping to the U.S., although their shipping is steep.

    +1 Most of their sale ties are 88 bucks American after VAT deduction. But it's a feeding frenzy in there boys. Two of the four ties I selected got sold out from under me while I was dealing with website glitches.

    :fu:

    Remember to register and login for the site first with a US address - the site will display the non-VAT prices. Shipping is not expensive - $20 flat rate. Still five ties were not cheap :(

    Forgot about the VAT. Damn, there goes the will power.

    I am pleased to announce I had 5 grenadines and tussahs in my cart, and got down to the last digit in my credit card before I closed the screen and walked away.
