    Alas, a positive response, which means an expanded set of potential ties to consider. [​IMG]

    Reasons for selling, left to right:

    Blue dots - didn't like the "horizontal" orientation of the dots, much prefer "diagonal" (this actually wasn't sold - it became my mannequin tie)
    Brown dots - too shiny
    Brown neat - too bronze
    Green - actually kept this one, let me know if anyone wants it for $25 (it's another Battistoni)
    Plaid - redundant, have one already san red lines
    Black neat - too many black ties
    Black knit - too skinny

    Dood, not at all thank you for your honest and open minded approach to all this. This has helped fuel further contributions and debate, more power to you. It's an excellent threak to learn, discuss and subsequently approach differently how we wear what we wear with a different eye!

    I hope where ever u bought it has a return policy like that of Neiman Marcus'. Their 60 days full refund return policy allowed me to return probably about 8 ties at full price @ $200 plus a pop. What a disaster that cud have been if it were not for the helpful folks here at SF

    Holy sh*t! Think of what you could have bought at the exquisite trimmings sale or at NMWA for that! Good catch indeed.

    Where do you get all these crazy ideas? Why do you think I like skinny ties and I that I buy ties at absurd $200 MSRP (!!!)?

    Are you poasting high on crystal meth tonight?

    HUH??? The skinny tie ref was just a joke and I was just sharing that I was fortunate enough to return all the ties that I paid full retail for. I was not saying u purchased at $200. I did. Chillax~

    Ties that I would love to get rid of or burn but cannot return anymore.
