    There are a lot less swatches in this series, so the voting part isn't really necessary - we can offer almost all of them.

    There will be 5 colors total, including a brown!

    Anything darker than those three? Or all similarly light?

    I'd say they're all in the dusty, light spectrum like the ones in the pictures.

    Here's the brown swatch:

    Very interesting colors - Brown and rust probably most appealing to me

    I love the Panta ties (and scarf and trousers) that I have. I just committed to my first purchase on MassDrop! :slayer:

    I really don't like sites that more or less force you to make an account and/or try to get you to sign in via Facebook in order to use the site - comes off as invasive and plenty of sites still allow you to make purchases as a guest. On the fence about whether or not to even give it a chance solely based on this.

    It also seems like some drops are flat out lying about the MSRP of an item? The AKG headphones say $650 MSRP but in reality they are more like $400 MSRP that you can always find for < $250

    That is, unless they really do plan to make the MSRP $250 higher for the same exact audio specs, just different colors.

    Anyways, maybe I am just being a curmudgeon today but that's why I'm reluctant ...

    I can't speak to the audio items you mention, but the Panta ties are easily verifiable as a good deal. Panta asks 109 for their ties direct, and Maasdrop has worked with Ed to give you ties at 79.99.

    Regarding signing up, i signed up a while back, and the only emails I get from them are the daily "drops" that you can customize to get notified about only the drops you care about. Personally, I wouldn't hesitate to order.

    I've been a "member" for a little over a year and I dont think they invade your privacy at all. I dont have a facebook account and the only thing they send is a daily email with highlights. I've only bought maybe 4-5 things in a year. I thought you could sign up for the emails but not have to put in all of your info to buy etc? Maybe this changed?

    Dont forget I think the op (brillopad) is only in charge of the menswear and not the other drops (I think). Agree with you that most of the electronics are not good deals, but then the electronics industry is faily cut throat competition wise.

    Those are both fair comments so maybe I'll give it a chance if the emails aren't too frequent. Thanks for the feedback, guys.
