    Moving on...

    Our third auction for the Annual Holiday Drive, this year for the Ronald McDonald House Charities (www.rmhc.org) will be for your choice of any Drakes tie plus any Drake’s pocket square from Exquisite Trimmings, with retail value between 145 and 175 gbp (about $230 to $280, USD)), courtesy of Exquisite Trimmings.

    I love blue and orange together, especially or the FW season, so I'd probably pick this pair:

    [​IMG]
    Navy Pure Cashmere Herringbone Tie, 115 gbp

    or the lighter, silk version:
    [​IMG]
    Blue Herringbone Silk Jacquard Tie, 95 gbp

    and
    [​IMG]
    Orange Paisley Silk Pocket Square, 50 gbp

    You can talk to Shaya, proprietor of Exquisite Trimmings, about pocket squares, ties, cufflinks, and more, here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/323233/...d-in-london-uk-official-affiliate-thread/0_50

    Our bidding starts at $100. Someone come up with $100. 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. EST, tonight.
    Let’s get this moving, gentlemen.
    Cheers,
    Fok.

    P.S. Yes, we will honor Ed's initial bid at $100, for those who are wondering.
