    wow... someone snatch this up, i'm not sure it's exactly my style, but it is a GREAT fray shirt. think they are considered even better than borrelli. (actually, i'm working on buying a new suit, and my wife may physically threaten me if i buy this Fray shirt, as well.) http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....2229816

    I wouldn't put them above Borrelli, but Fray is certainly comparable..in fact, the buttons are even thicker(.) (if you can believe it).

    What's with the matching tie? Do Fray shirts usually come like this? The look reminds me of DeNiro in Casino; not too elegant IMO.

    Neiman Marcus did those spring of '01. The shirt/tie combination actually looks pretty cool, but only if you're in the upper echelons at your company, or work in retail. I got the lime green version (pistachio?) sans tie about this time last year. Great fabric, awesome shirt. My guess is the seller picked it up in Tempe at Last Call.

    I actually like the matching shirt and tie combination. It can look very striking against a solid suit. Be warned, however, that women will probably stop thinking of you as well-dressed and start thinking of you as a fancy-man if you wear it into the office, on a date, essentially any place and occasion other than a "creative" dress-up occasion.

    Pretty cool. Pretty... LBJ, but pretty cool. And I wouldn't mind in the least being mistaken for a fancy-man - if anyone sees one of these shirt/tie combos on eBay in size 14.5, share the love and let me know... Thanks, Nick.
