    My night went from shitty to not that bad. Thanks, Norcal. I'm in tears laughing right now.

    No, they aren't free at any places I know of. But at least most places sell knots that actually fit in the shirts that they sell.

    Twenty bucks. #Q)_#@$)_Q. Even overpriced Charvet silk knots are about $12.

    They are $20 for three (still highly priced). They are too thick for the buttonholes.

    BTW, I think Banana Republic Premium shirts are an even dumber marketing move. It started out so promising, and has now simply become a haven for American Jackass style.

    Somebody should send this to Jay Leno for the headlines segment. This is pretty damn funny.

    Charvet are actually $14, however they are real silk. Most others are just elastic.

    Though the Charvet are real silk, they fall apart pretty easy.

    I work at BR and yes i'm not proud of it, and now even but its money. Anyhow we got those in and sold about 5-6 pairs and then all of a sudden we started getting them back cause they didn't fit. This was from their first batch about 3 months ago. I guess they aren't smart enough to fix the problem. They are free usually with shirts from BB.
