    As long as it's not the shirt I'm looking at, I say fair game.

    The link @330CK provided is good. He's his very high end Atelier in Beverly Hills. He's got a $600 tie, and I believe @Brianpore found one at some point.

    Here's an article about him from '91
    http://articles.latimes.com/1991-01-04/news/vw-7946_1_beverly-hills

    And here's something more recent from '09
    http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/fashion/features/designer-for-the-stars-1761711.html

    He has a website, but there's nothing there as far as I can tell.

    He's basically a competitor for Bijan. Something interesting about Bijan, if you go look at his website and go through his menswear collection, you'll notice that the boxes his ties and pocket squares come in are printed with the same pattern as the tie within, maybe even wrapped in the same silk for all I know.

    I know full new bottles of Polo Sport sell for good money on ebay (between $50 and $80). I would think that you could really push the fact that this is first issue and drive the price even higher!

    I have to admit I do that IF the person is moving very slowly and doesn't appear to be a pro and ONLY when I have finished the other rack and the one they are on is my next target.

    You know the people I am talking about. They pick up each item (even if you can tell from 6 feet away that its a turd) and they study it and think about it all while I have flipped through 25 things in the same time.

    I've had success getting shirts and cotton trousers cleaned up using a variation on 'the Method'. Do folks use it to deal with, er, you know, staining on trouser lining? How do you avoid contact with the wool? Or is there some other way.

    Obviously, I could just stop buying trousers with piss stains but why would I do that?

    I've made an oxyclean paste, turned the pants inside out and left the paste on the lining spot being careful to not get on the pants themselves. Worked great at least once.

    Try soaking in rubbing alcohol. I've removed stains from ties using this method. And a few shirts.

    Paging @GMMcL. I think he did a big experiment on trouser stains a while ago.

    It is a kind of question to japan's consumer culture, asking what really is "luxury" in life. and just a bit funky too.
