    Just thought I would put a quick post up to say that I received my Carlo Franco ties this morning...picked up four of them from eBay from the previous season's stock at $60 a pop.

    WOW

    They are gorgeous, love three, like the 4th. Very nice.

    Great service from them, and really happy with what I received. Plus they come with Jill's business card in there, so I can start sneaking her private mails as part of my plot to steal her away from the grasp of the evil TexasTieTwit.

    Thanks guys.

    Matt

    Matt - I thought that I had some nice ties, until I met chuck and saw his tie. basically, I decided then and there that I needed to get rid of my ties and replace them with his ties.

    don't even get me started on his shirt...

    I concur. I have three of their damn ties. They sort of creep up on you (the ties, not Chuck & Jill [​IMG] )
    And they are nice people, too!

    Love their ties....just got four new ones when they had their sale a month ago (or whenever it was). Got three for me, and one that I am giving to my Uncle as a Christmas present.

    Thanks for the kind words, guys. I somehow missed this thread first time around. That silver on silver stripe has always been one of my favorites. It's a nice "daily" tie, but it's a gorgeous "evening" or "formal" tie. While I'm not a huge fan of the 4-in-hand-with-a-tux look, I've seen it done that way and it's DARNED sexy!

    Now that the new collection of shirt has finally arrived, Chuck may put his personal (17x33) collection of CF shirts on ebay. OK, to be truthful, I may put them there! Most have been worn only once or twice, because he had a tendency to grab a new one from the stock room rather than being bothered with ironing!

    We may list the "floor" samples (ties) as well. We probably have 20 or 30 designs that are no long in stock, but still have one in the stock room which we used on the mannequin for various photo shoots.

    Anyway, thanks again for the kind words.
