    the big selloff happened yesterday (I missed out) but there's still some stuff left.

    Not at are branded drakes, but others have postulated that these are indeed drakes ties (or at least the silks/wool/linen/cashmere that drakes uses)

    I am selling a bunch of high end ties, and dont want to interfere with the three other big tie sellers on the board (gyasi, dave, edmorel), but I wanted to share this with everyone.

    Some nice woolen paisleys and madders left. Other whimsical designs remain too.

    Seems like the worst that was missed was a purple cashmere tie for 45.50 + $10 shipping.

    Those are the best of the bunch. :slayer:

    My cashmere Petronius ties are better though!

    I think they are 8 cm but I can confirm tomorrow when I get the package. Stock is definitely dwindling though.

    could someone link some of the "nicer" ties? or are they all the same quality?

    I'm still learning this tie business. Wouldn't mind picking up a couple though.

    The ones that are made in England are the nicer ones, for the most part.
