    I would be happy to supply the shell SPOO. I have a mismatched pair of Florsheim shell long wings that I bought in the hope that the other two might come paired soon after. Well, months have passed and no luck so I would be happy to donate one or both.
    Also, I have an extra Moygashel irish linen tie that I did not realize matched one in my collection so is an extra.
    Count me in for those two.

    I'd like to contribute and participate, probably not the best to organize the initial sendoff though.

    Thing is the newer posters are the ones who'd benefit from the box. Regular posters will probably already be familiar with everything in it.

    We should try a tie swap or something again someday.

    MEET OUR COO, RICHNET12!

    Thanks for stepping up man. The thread owes you a debt of gratitude.

    Now we need to focus in on what is needed for the box. Lets keep this list quoted in full every time someone adds something. Put your name down next to the item you will contribute, or re-quote the list and add something you think should be in there. Remember, it doesn't have to be a pair of shoes - one shoe will suffice! Doesn't have to be a whole jacket - a cut out piece will suffice. We want to keep this as compact as possible.

    THE OFFICIAL LIST :

    Shell Cordovan
    Grenadine Fina
    Grenadine Grossa
    Real Alligator/Croc
    Stamped Alligator/Croc
    Fake Versace Tie
    Fake Hermes Tie
    Real Hermes Tie
    Real Versace Tie
    Fake Chanel Scarf

    I've got a vicuña/mink/cashmere sc that I was going to cut up for the fabric that I could toss a swatch of in the box. I think people should label everything too so that everybody knows what the different items are.

    Should we also claim what we can contribute as the list grows?

    Photos with swatches of material will keep down the priority mail cost. A chair? A shoe? Only a part will do.
