They just restocked the tie rack, first one I touch is a ferragamo for a buck....$70 later they have no more ties and I have a fucking shit load, decent day so far

    I didn't buy any of them. They are the hard plastic (VINTAGE) with brass hardware. They are flannel lined. The guy was a traveling shoe salesman and then became a sales rep for Samsonite.

    I thought about getting a few. I'm probably going back tommorrow.

    Oh...yeah I probably would have passed as well. Thought they were wood or that hard pressboard or maybe tweed. Do look cool still stacked up like that.

    Whoops. I am wrong. My wife actually looked at them. She said they were metal. Most of them were about briefcase size, but obviously there were some really long ones too.

    If Loro Piana makes bedding out of their cotton it would make Frette feel like 200 count Macys RL shit and that much LP cotton could very realistically be in the 5 figure range. I got an LP boutique 5 minutes from my place, I don't know if you were joking or not but I'm now intrigued, cuz why wouldn't they? Fuck it, fucking Vicuna bedding....if your question is serious the answer would be at their boutique and absolutely nowhere else.

    I'm literally scrolling through going "what the fu*k??" And cursing the fact that I am on kid duty and can't hit stores tonight or tomorrow. Not that any of your insane luck would rub off on me, but still.

    The second image in a showroom sample book designers can check out, of fabrics you can have your furniture upholstered in (moms an interior designer) and that thick fucking sample book, is entirely cashmere. Fuck cashmere blazers and jackets, I want a fucking cashmere couch. Fuck Versace furniture, I will one day own an LP cashmere chair...it'll be my dad chair that no one else is allowed to sit in.
