    Yes, but I don't really use pocket squares. So I'll keep my powder dry for the ties :)

    Wow. I have absolutely no use for pocket squares but these are awesome enough to be framed and hung as art.

    Auction 11: A Set of Any 3 Customized Neckties (valued at around US$460) from @gshen and Vanda Fine Clothing
    Starts immediately, ends 11 a.m. PST, Monday, Dec 18, or 10 minutes after the last bid, whichever comes later.

    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 package of any 3 customized neckties (valued at around US$460) from @gshen and Vanda Fine Clothing. Choose between a wide range of fabrics, from silk grenadine in luxurious Loro Piana cashmere to madder printed silks. Modern, classic, Elton John worth paisleys, whatever your style, Vanda has got you covered. The common element is that all of them are hand cut, rolled, and sewn by hand in Singapore.

    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 approximately $460 We will start the bidding at 1/2 of the retail, or $230. The bidding will go by minimum increments of $25. Good luck, all

    Please bid generously to help the Ronald McDonald House.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Fwiw, including a very generous donation from the Thrift Group here, we are up to over $7500 in donations right now. Help us to break $10K this coming week!

    Cheers,

    That's awesome. Let's see if we can't get $600 for charity!
