    Everyone sells knots, I imagine: BB, PS, Thomas Pink, etc. Probably even J. Crew, which might be cheaper. Other threads have debated whose knots last longer, that is which brands retain their elasticity and stay knotted. I wear them infrequently, so I can't tell the difference. If you have a little more time and can't choose just one or two colors, you might get this STP special -- 15 pair for 50 bux. They don't get much cheaper, and you'll never want for knots again. http://www.sierratradingpost.com/p/8...s-For-Men.html

    The Chinese guy was selling them for about the STP price, as I recall. Only advantage was your own choice of a slightly larger color selection.

    Quality difference unknown. The STPs might be from the same factory, for all we know.

    But how do you choose from all those colors? Won't your brain explode?

    I bought some from the chinese seller on eBay. Came relatively fast (a week I think), but had a pair basically fall apart after about 3 wearings! Annoying as I liked them, but at that price they are practically disposable.

    If they fall apart after three wearings they ARE disposable. :)
