    It was fresh out of a small box. Glad to hear that it is better than a 38.
    Thx

    Yep, you're definitely a 40...it looks good. Probably only set you back a few of those NM ties you used to buy.

    Thanks JRD.
    Like this.
    Better to buy this way than to pay full retail.

    Ugh effing USPS! It stayed in the box all weekend and got wrinkled!!!

    Should be good after a press though.

    Looks great!

    I like how it looks Noodels. Looks more comfortable than the 38's.

    No worries! I saved a thousand or two. I'll just ask the tailor to press it. I have a steamer but I am afraid to use it since I screwed up a suit last time I used it. Pleasure doing bizness with you. And the wrinkles should go away if I hang it up, if not will just press it.

    Just saw Stitch, but think I got a headache looking at them rocks.

    Wow...I ordered that navy grenadine but didnt think I'd be wearing it anytime soon. They shipped it but I know not where tis is.

    Betel, I want to look like Daniel Craig version of James Bond. Think I need to get on roids and bulk up like Ahnerd. But the Sean Connery version is classic and that's cool too.
