    Much more modestly:

    My new PS socks.

    Added value is provided by the way the background screen is showing this actual thread.

    They are Grenson Masterpiece level shoes. EG made Stuart's Choice shoes a decade ago.

    Anyone been to the sale this morning? Any markdowns?

    Sportcoats further marked down (orig. $784, now $279, etc). Further markdowns on sportswear as well. I picked up a couple of Japanese made polo shirts and my first bolt of fabric for $75 (hard for me to market a Saturday trip to TipTop as a family excursion). So I'm thinking this wool/cashmere blend will make a nice pair of fall/winter pants. Should I call Mr. Rodriguez of Staten Island, Mr. Ned, some other CMT option? Your thoughts welcomed.

    I suggest calling Dario only if you have a pair of trousers he can copy. I'm a little less than impressed with his work when he does the measuring.

    a friend of mine who went says Grenson MPs are still priced at $250. i think i'll be selling a few pairs of Grenson MPs that i haven't worn on Buying & Selling...

    the selection of ties, though $100 for 10, was not very exciting, i hear. some paisley and other generally loud patterns.

    I just find their ties quite thin. For $10 a tie, if you need ties, who cares. But I don't need ties, so I don't need to stock up on mediocre ones

    A friend of mine called Dario over the weekend try to schedule an appointment, but was told he is going to surgery and not taking any more orders for a while.

    Thanks for the info. I seem to recall that there's a fellow in Chinatown who also does this work. . . I have a pair that I'd like copied, which might help the process.

    I'm sure you mean the selection was thin. The ties are wide as ever.

    Even in the first hour of the sale, the ties on offer at the sale were eccentric, at best.

    For a selection that is both more attractive and thinner [in width], check my remaining stock of Paul Stuart ties here. Prices are comparable to those at the PS sale, plus I ship to you:

    Given your shoe collection, for me, meeting you would be like a Catholic meeting the Pope. I am not sure I could handle it. [​IMG]

    A tie can be thin or thick, wide or narrow.

    Yes, but the PS ties at the sale were around 3.75 inches.

    I believe that Zip was referring to the ties thickness (caused by multiple folds or heavy interlining) not their width.

    correct. I find them too thin and do not make nice hefty knots.
