    Lets get this goal toppled, gents.

    Dont let these kids down - and as a reminder, I am donating 10% of the hammer price of my auctions ending on 12/16, next Sunday, to the RMHC, so if you see anything you like, 10% of it goes to help a small kid be happier at the holidays.

    Our first auction for the Annual Holiday Drive, this year for the Ronald McDonald House Charities (www.rmhc.org) will be for your choice of Benchgrade Kent Wang Shoes, with retail value between $350 and $375, courtesy of Kent Wang.

    Kent Wang was the original king of the three inch tie on Styleforum, and his direct to customer model allows him to bring you goods at a fraction of the price of comparable goods from other makers. He started his business on Styleforum selling handrolled pocket squares, not ties, in 2007, and it’s grown from there. You can read all about Kent Wang and his products here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/151480/kent-wang-affiliate-thread/1550_50

    Our bidding starts at $150. Someone come up with $150. Please post your bids here, in increments of $10 or more, or PM me to place an anonymous bid for you. Bidding will end at 11:59 p.m. tonight, at which point I will contact the winner re. payment and shipping.

    Let’s get this moving, gentlemen. Get a great pair of shoes and help some kids. It’s a no lose situation.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    You can see more photos of the shoes on my website. Note that this auction covers only the benchgrade shoes.

    Ed: Thanks for the opening bid. You're old school.

    I'll go $175.

    I remember working for Ronald McDonald House a bit when I was younger. They're good people who do good work.
