    Takes it at $380. Thank you and congratulations.
    We'll be taking a short break for Christmas, but please stay tuned, as we have a few auctions, starting Boxing Day and taking us up to New Years.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    While we're at intermission, a suggestion that I'm recycling from last year: for those who didn't or don't win, consider donating a percentage of your non-winning bid amount directly to the Ronald McDonald House. You were going to spend it already and even just a portion of that would help.

    It's not my show but I wouldn't think a kind request of bidders who don't win to donate 5-10% of their highest single losing bid at the conclusion of the auctions would be out of line.

    LIGHTNING ROUND
    Auction 15, 16, and 17: Custom tie and Pocket square combination from @Sam Hober


    Each auction will last approximately 4-6 hours.

    The first starts immediately, ends at approximately 6 p.m. PST today. When the auction is drawing towards an end, I will make a 15 minutes call. If there is no additional bid within the those 15 minutes, the highest winner takes it, and we go immediately into the next auction. If there is a bid. then the clock resets for another 15 minutes, and we keep on going until there is no bid within the 15 minutes. We will do this three times. Of course, each round will get more desperate!

    The third auction, the end time will be called when I wake up and have some coffee on the west coast of the USA.


    Sam Hober (or rather, David - you can ask him the story) has been supplying Styleforum members with hand cut, rolled, and sewn, ties and pocket squares, and David is a long term, valued member of this community. Let's show him and the Ronald McDonald House some real love.

    Each of these three auctions is for a package of any tie and pocket square, in any material and construction (value approximately $130 + $40 = $170).

    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 $170. We will start the bidding at 1/2 of the retail, or $85. The bidding will go by minimum increments of $15. Good luck, all

    Please bid generously to help the Ronald McDonald House.

    Cheers,

    Fok.
