    First three all local charity shops, total spend <£10.

    One of my fave finds. Always cheap as the shops don't recognise it, but sell well. Small stain right at the bottom, way below where tucked in. (AVAILABLE):

    Pop for me. Checks out as genuine via the tag numbers. (AVAILABLE)

    And a second pop in the next shop, a very rare visitor to the UK. Fits amazingly well on me, really unusual for a 'regular' fit. (NOT AVAILABLE)
    [​IMG]

    E-thrift staple for me, which also fits amazingly, NWOT. NOT AVAILABLE.

    [​IMG]

    AE Dryden E-thrift which are too small for me, so available. US 10.5B, and too narrow for me. Probably a narrow UK 9-9.5. AVAILABLE

    Finally, my Hackett tie failed the gren check, and I mentioned I had a Tyrwhitt I thought was the same which was a BNWT e-thrift with a CT label saying it was gren, so I offer it up for checking also:
