    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    How much are those worth each on the aftermarket?

    I would have tried to delicately pry a bit & see if he would sell.

    By the way: where was that estate sale?

    Estate sale in Greenwich that didn't advertise clothing at all, and was BY FAR the best clothing sale I've been to. Crazy shit - Loro PIANA cashmere robe, Lattanzi croc belt for 10 bucks, all the vapors of the shoes and jackets, a ton of quality beaver felt hats, etc. I ended up with 3 pair of what feel like cashmere angora blend socks by accident after the dude threw em in at checkout. Got both Flusser books too. Legit stuff...

    I think my third nut just dropped.

    Tag/estate sale companies are the worst.
    It blows my mind how much cash they loose their clients.

    I don't know a better place to have a first post. Do excuse my camera quality. Some of my more recent neck wear finds:

    Apparently this one retailed at $47.50, only if BOC was at that price today! Obviously pre Nordstrom. I found 3 more BOCs at the same store.

    I don't believe Southwick has an MTM operation for neckties, but just in case, I've blacked out the name out of respect for privacy, whether he's with us or not. This one, I'd say, has more "heft" than three of my BOCs. It ties a thicker knot and is, of course, proudly hand made in Canada! It doesn't have bar tacks, instead having a reinforced, with much thread, advanced slip stitch that still feels sturdy.


    NEXT TIME:
    D'avenza suit jacket and more fun with ties, possibly Cheaney loafers.

    @sashae if that was someone's wake, I would hate to see what you missed.

    Also, after UPS telling me yesterday that my e thrift was lost, it magically appeared today...

    Actually I think that's a TJ cuff weight/reinforcement from a pair of pants.
