Noodles, do you have an family picture / inventory of the ties you own?
Lol. I thut so. U had some great collection of ties. Cant believe u got rid of them.
When did you sold that brown tie with the flowers, jrd? I would have bought that one.
Alas, a positive response, which means an expanded set of potential ties to consider.
Couple months ago! Gotta check the B&S. It was a battistoni
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
[^ Reasons for selling? OIC
Doodals looking forward to seeing how things pan out. Certainly been compelling
Thx for ur two cents. Hopefully, I get some good ties out of this thread. Already got one
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~
Here is what I've downsized it to:
Ties that I would love to get rid of or burn but cannot return anymore.
Current tie collection per request. Will keep all.
