    Alright, I've really got all the ties I need so I'm willing to just keep one if I win the auction, and share the rest with you guys (of course with no profit). I'm mostly interested in the second one from the right:

    Tell me which ones you're interested in and we'll divide them if I win. Also, are all of you US residents? If so, you can share the price for the shipping to the US and it will probably be next to nothing (i.e. I send them to one of you and he ships them to the rest).

    I'm also interested in knowing what you're willing to spend so I know how high I should go.

    Nice idea though ties not for Me.

    But dry clean the ties? That's usually contraindicated, but curious if people do this. If unstained then I would not dry clean. They will be pressed to death. I've decided to always buy ties new and on sale. Or perhaps from one of you directly!

    This is great. I cannot fit any of these into my rotation so I'll let others who can make better use of them take them.
    Thanks for the offer EFV [​IMG]

    If I buy used (not often) or deadstock garments I usually dry clean them. I trust my dry cleaner with my life (almost), he's never let me down so far.

    Thanks! I like these two:

    I'm not sure how realistic this is, but about €25 per tie? That would make the total bid €150. I live in the UK, so shipping shouldn't be that expensive.

    That's crucial! I don't trust any except
    Through my tailor who will make sure
    Things are right or will repress them.

    We've already got a problem, the right one of those is the one I really want to keep. :fence:

    There really doesn't seem to be sidebars in this thread, and it's basically your thread anyway. PM gdl?

    Hmmm, I don't think this would be a wise choice for you. The light grey won't go well with your complexion (you sold your Zegna because it was too pale a shade of grey, isn't it?) and too light for the CBD environment where I understand you're working. And personally, I don't like peak lapels on a SB suit, looks a bit too contrived to me.

    I would take @kulata 's advice if I were you: be patient and wait until you find exactly what you want, instead of rushing to buy something you might later regret...

    Do any of these fit right, especially on the shoulders?
    Sorry for the dumb question. Just trying to figure something out.
    Thanks!
