1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Cheers,

    1. E.G. Cappelli without question #1
    2. Marinella
    3. Drakes
    4. Vanda Fine Clothing
    5. Holliday & Brown (Only made in England ones, not the licensed ones made in Italy)

    Edit: And also every Sam Hober I've ever owned has been excellent but I don't know if they have a spot in a top 5 list cuz they aren't available OTR, they are all custom made

    E.G. Cappelli, Drake's, Sam Hober, Vanda...not sure about a fifth. I love a Charvet knot but find most of their ties ugly.

    This may not be the right thread, my apologies if it's not. Is anyone interested in buying my inventory? I have become wayyyy to busy to list and ship stuff. If you want details message me but you're looking at $1,000-$1,500 (which is a bargain), I'm thinking you're looking at an ebay value of 3-4k.

    Not quite thrift price, but probably 1/15th of what they could pull at a consignment shop.


    apparently, the 8K price is actually from a half off sale. Original retail was ~17k. part of the "1921" collection.

    Marinella prints tend to be just a touch busy to me, Cappelli seems to be very similar but with a bit more space in the patterns.
