    Yes, they are all Bigi. The more I look at the striped ties the less crazy I am about them. I do like the the others though.

    Noodles: I haven't had a chance to get the suit to the tailor.

    FlyingMonkey: I thought you promised pictures with a real camera from here on out?

    Plumbing: We're adding a bed/bath to our house right now. The plumbing sub is trying to jack up his fee by calling out things as "extras" separate from what he bid on originally. All of this despite my drawing his attention to all of things specifically on his walk-through pre-bid. I will cut a bitch...

    If and when I re-start taking regular WAYRN pictures, yes I will do. That was just a quick one because of the Fair Isle discussion earlier... and it does its job adequately, doesn't it?

    Basically, this thread has become a hybrid of Ask a Quick Question (Advanced), MC General Chat, and Should I Buy This?

    Ain't no problem with it. The other day I almost came in here to ask for y'all to hunt me down a nice green tie for around $75 (and I refuse to pay more than 100 for a tie. Never have. Never will. Except maybe for a Vanda. Because damn it, those are probably worth it).

    I'm with Noodles on the stripes>dots. But I'm biased of course.

    I can feel your frustration, coming as you do from a small and unimportant country with a bizarre dialect.

    Rush Limbaugh is not one to let the boundaries of bad taste stop him

    I want to clarify that I wasn't trying to bring politics to the thread... I just want @in stitches to spit out his coffee while looking at those magnificent ties.
