    So with the 2 original tie swap boxes slowing down so much, I've decided to start the virtual swap box.
    The rules are simple:

    Post pictures and a brief description of the ties you would like to trade.

    Keep checking the thread for new posts and pics.

    When you see something posted that you like, contact that member via PM and ask if you have anything they would like as well. Try to remember to include the post number your ties are located at in your PM so as to make referencing easier.

    There are no restrictions as to what brands or materials of ties that may be listed. But be realistic, don't ask or offer to swap a geoffrey beene for a brioni or something stupid like that.

    Any terms reached via PM for swap or sale are private and not posted.

    You may post that a deal was reached with such-and-such a member and this tie is no longer available.

    My brother-in-law just gave me a bunch of ties I don't want. I threw away any that were really bad, so these are all stain free from what I can see. Not great brands, but I'm sure someone can use them. These are not for trade or sale, these are all FREE. Pick one or more (as many as you want) and I'll throw them in a flat rate bag for you. All it will cost you is $5.95 for shipping, which you can paypal me.

    i think people should post pictures of items sent and received and whether the ties were in the condition described and such
    so others can get a good idea of who are good honest traders


    and to make it easier to identify the ties, maybe spend a few minutes labeling the ties with numbers
    whether physically (like put a piece of paper with number in the photo)
    or by photoshopping numbers

    As mentioned in another thread, I posted pics in TSB#2. I have nothing to hide. There are people who never posted pics though...
    Out of curiosity, if your collection is so refined than why were you not in on the "ultimate swap box"?

    and please utilize the spoiler function as much as possible
    like post the big group shots
    and all subsequent detailed shots hidden in spoilers so as not to overload the pages with pictures

    i was going to start this properly in january
    but you jumped the gun

    I had no way to know this. I'll delete this thread if you want. I can wait, I was just bored at work today.
    PS. Edited spoilers in as suggested.

    group shot


    i took pics of front and back of each tie
    and left the tape measure sitting across the blade of each tie to give you an idea of the width
    most ties are pretty much true to color in these photos
    i can provide more detailed pics and measurement if we get close to making a deal
    none of these ties have any damage or stain
    some have been worn only once ... others that got more wear are still in very good shape


    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    no flash is probably closest to true colors

    is it tartan or plaid? i don't really know the difference
    very light weight silk
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    worn once since i got it after summer was over


    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    the color is truest in the no flash picture
    this tie was worn only twice... does not really complement my skin and hair color
    (this tie is no longer available - returned to land's end)

    [​IMG]
    both nice ties that i like

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    very luxurious silk, silky smooth
    bought in september or october of '11 and worn a handful of times
    would need a very nice offer to swap

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    nice texture to the tie
    good condition, no damage or stain, blade could be pressed a bit

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    very slim and shiny
    got a bit of sparkle stuff in the pattern

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    nice herringbone pattern
    i love the pattern but it's a bit too slim for me
    tie is 89% wool/11% silk, a little fuzzy in tiny spots but not damaged

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    this one is even slimmer
    otherwise i'd totally wear it
    i might have worn this tie once... or not even once
    because it's way too slim
    tie is 89% wool/11% silk

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    i'm looking for things like... polka dots, paisley, and solids in various weave/fabric/pattern

    nah
    just giving you grief
    but as you can see, there are a bunch of little things that you have kinda think through in order to make the virtual swap box work out more smoothly

    This was going to be a throw in with a B&S item I've yet to list, but why not throw it up here? 3.75".

    I've got red and blue covered, could use a gray or brown. Open to lots of things in regard to patterns, maybe plaid or dots. I'm weak on the plaids outside of rough wool, and really weak on dots in general.
