    The Aldens were recently re-soled but the logo is missing from the inside. Still worth the kop? Are the black knit ties gren? If so what type of knit?

    Some serious trad goodness there. Awesome. First tie is a grenadine (garza grossa or similar), second a knit.

    Noice! Just took a look at it (it needs a dry-cleaning for the stain but she lists it as - no flaws - that's a big lol there too...). You sure it's Kiton? Piombo has several manufacturers like LB and Kiton only makes the high-end stuff iirc.

    Stains almost never deter me, my cleaners might actually be real life wizards, they dry clean ties flawlessly, they get stained neck of shirts out having them look as if there brand fucking new, no soaking it in detergent for 2 days or whatever... i dunno what they do but they get the job done always... they have failed me once in 2 years. And Massimo Piombo is owned by Kiton but no it's most likely not made by Kiton, it's probably Lardini, I just jumped when I saw her wonderful mistake. I buy first then think later, I recommend this method to no one.

    Edit: In what pic is there a stain...you may actually have Twenty/Ten vision (ha ...ha..).... I see nothing.

    My jaw was on the floor when I found this. ALWAYS CHECK WOMENS OUTERWEAR!

    Incredibly, I found ANOTHER Ralph Lauren (University) polo coat across town but it was too moth bitten.
