Auction 10: Sam Hober Tie and Pocket Square sets courtesy of David Hober

Starts immediately, ends 5:00 p.m. PST, Friday, Dec 14, or 10 minutes after the latest bid, whichever comes later.

Up for our 10th auction is for one of three (3) separate sets of any tie and pocket square from @Sam Hober . The highest 3 bidders will all win a set! You can find lots of inspiration here.

Just as an example:



As for all these auctions, 100% of the proceeds go to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Spokane (https://rmhcinlandnw.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 the holidays, there are many worthy charities to support, and we really appreciate your taking part in these charity auctions.

The retail price of each of these tie and pocketsquare sets is $170. Bidding will start at $90 Bidding will be by increments of $15 or higher, and remember, the top 3 bidders all win!

Winners will contact Styleforum directly at [email protected], please.

Please bid generously to help the Ronald McDonald House.

Cheers,

Fok.

Not trying to be cute, but given that the current highest bid is $150 and the top three bidders win, could I bid $125? Or does it have to be equal to or greater than $150.

If the former, I bid $125.

I guess we will let this one slide, since it's not a conventional auction.

In the spirit of the auction, wouldn't it be more fitting to allow equal or greater bids?
You are probably right, but I'll let that one go, since I already said yes. The rest, equal or higher, in $15 increments.

C'mon people, it's to benefit kids. While it's also awesome to get a deal, I feel that getting something that you like and helping kids should be enough incentive. It's tempting fate to try to hit the trifecta.

Cheers,

Fok.

A brief hiatus, and we're really going to get ready for Christmas. we'll have an auction for a Valstar jacket from No Man Walks Alone and @gdl203 up on Saturday evening until Monday evening. Following that we will have MTO shoes from Lof&Tung, courtesy of Skoaktiebolaget and @Leaves , a navy suit from Cavour @kevinsvindland , more MTO shoes, this time from @Carmina , and we'll end the week with ties from Vanda @gshen

Auction 11: Any Valstar jacket and Master-Piece wallet of the winner's choice from www.nomanwalksalone.com

Let's start the bidding... now. The first auction will be the longest auction, and will end on Monday December 17, at 5 p.m. PST.

Up for auction is a combination of any Valstar jacket and Master-Piece wallet of the winners choice, plus as available at www.nomanwalksalone.

There are many choices to be had for either item.

Me, I am partial to this combination:

http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/index.php/deater-billfold-wallet-with-coin-purse-in-bottle-green-shrunken-leather.html

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 is approximately $1500. We will start the bidding at just under 1/2 of the retail of this package, or $750. The bidding will go by increments of $75 or higher. Let's do it for the kids.

Please bid generously to help the Ronald McDonald House.

Cheers,

Fok.
