I dont disagree with that at all. But you are not a person trying to build a tie collection. You can buy whatever tie you like if you feels the kop is justifiable from a financial standpoint. So, should a tie that you love but would not pay 150 for, is available for 75, kop away. However, a person trying to get started on a tie collection should shy away from that. If what he wants/needs is on sale, awesome, but passing on a tie that he "needs" for a tie he likes more, that happens to be on sale, but is less of a staple, is a mistake for most beginners imo. Great gif. I am so happy that you posted one knowing your disdain for gifs and jpegs. Also, money does enter the equation for me. Just not in the same way as most people with similar incomes.
