    Alright, @asaa1000 takes it for $380. Thanks for the bid, and you got a killer sportscoat.

    Next item will be a pair of beautiful cufflinks and a pocket square from Monsieur Fox. Stay tuned.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Auction 7: Monsieur Fox cufflinks and pocket square set from the "Cabaret" collection


    Ends Tuesday, Dec 8, 2015.5 p.m. PST​

    Let's start the bidding... now.

    This auction is for one set of cufflinks (the very last pair), and a pocket square from Monsieur Fox's Cabaret line. So, essentially, a great auction for anyone who is thinking about doing anything at night... ever.

    The cufflinks are called the "corset" cufflinks, made in solid sterling silver, and then finished in 14K rose gold (retail $250). The pocket square is the Cabaret La Goulue and is handdrawn and painted (retail $50) (http://www.monsieurfox.com/collections/pocket-squares/products/la-goulue-cabaret-pocket-square)

    Retail: $300

    Monsieur Fox: "Luxury should be a staple, not a rarity. For too long, men have been subject to the confines of formal, business, and casual. But a true gentleman is an interplay of all three. He is well-mannered, well-groomed, and well-liked. Monsieur Fox is an ode to that man. His demeanor is uniquely his own, his palette is refined, and his style is recognized by all those around him. He is, in a word, elegant. And he is elegant, everyday."

    Let's start the bidding at $150. The minimum increment on a bid will be $20. Please announce bids on this thread. If you wish to be anonymous, you may PM me, and I will proxy the bid for you.

    Important note: The bidding will not end if there has been a bid in the last 10 minutes, regardless of time. So, for example, if there is a bid at 2:59 Monday morning, the bidding will go on until 3:09, and if there is a bid before or at that time, the bidding will continue. Essentially, sniping is not going to be effective. It's for charity, y'all.

    Here are some pictures to make you all weep and bid generously and often:

    Next up, and starting a little later tonight so that we can give all those who will hear about the auctions in tomorrow's newsletter a fair shot, will be a Ring Jacket suit, in the winner's size, of course, courtesy of The Armoury (@yfyf and @JeffArmoury ).

    Just to give you what will come in the next week or so. Immediately after the Ring Jacket Auction, we will have an auction for a rare, actual MTO pair of shell cordovan Viberg service boots, with a lot of customization available.

    Both of these will be 24 hour auctions. Then we will do some more accessories to go into the weekend. @BootSpell @rydenfan and all you other Viberg fans, this will be possibly a once in a lifetime chance, not just to help the kids, but to get a pair of boots that will never be made again, to your specifications.

    We will have a lot of auctions, at different price ranges, so there will be chances for everyone to participate and contribute. You may also send a donation directly to [email protected] with the subject line "Holiday Charity Drive donation 2015".

    In the meantime, please take a look at all of @SpooPoker 's goodies!

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I've been looking at how the money is used, and $2000 funds a single family bedroom for an entire year.

    Just sayin'.
