    Auction 10: A full set of six of new Aesop's fables pocket squares (valued at around US$310) from Vanda Fine Clothing.

    Starts immediately, ends 11 a.m. PST, Friday, Dec 15.

    Vanda Fine Clothing is one of our home grown businesses, and exemplifies the very best of Styleforum with hand cut, rolled, and sewn, ties, pocket squares, and well appointed accessories, made mostly by @gshen and his wife themselves in their workshop in Singapore.

    This auction is for a full set of their Aesop's fables silk pocket squares, printed on silk from beautiful, muted, highly evocative watercolors. These will have a place in any man's wardrobe. After all, we all enjoy wearing art

    As for all these auctions, 100% of the proceeds go to the Ronald McDonald House Charities (www.rmhc.org), an organization that helps house and feed the families of children who have to travel for medical care. It's an incredibly stressful and emotionally draining time for families, and financial issues associated with loss of time at work, only compound those stresses. The Ronald McDonald Houses do their best to alleviate that stress by providing food and shelter and a home away from home for these families. I know that during this time, there are many worthy charities to support, and we really appreciate your taking part in these charity auctions.

    The retail price of these pocket square is $310 We will start the bidding at 1/2 of the retail, or $155. The bidding will go by increments of $25. Good luck, all

    Please bid generously to help the Ronald McDonald House.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I'll start this time, since I want these anyway. I will bid $155+25 = $180.
