    Sounds like a COP to me! I know nothing about MMM x H&M, but them Peals sound nice!


    Also Re: Tie Knots.... Here is one that I am most proud of. This is a personal tie (Vintage Talbott), and that day I was actually photographing the jacket in those pics... But just had to snap some pics of that tie cause it was so nice.

    I believe this was a 4-in-hand that I had messed with for like an hour to get just right.

    Just look at that "Tie Boner". So much air underneath. [​IMG]

    Shown with my standard photo shirt, Lorenzini. The jacket was an HF, and ended up selling for $152. [​IMG]

    Awesome tie and +1 on the 4 in hand knot!

    But sometimes, I effs with the double 4 in hand for that extra sprezz.

    Pretty sure the owner of a store just dumped a bunch of old stock they had left over from their store which has long since been closed. I think the store these came from closed in the early 90's.

    I find the double four-in-hand always makes the best dimples. :nodding:

    I always used a 4-in-hand since elementary school. But never cared about the crookedness until later.

    Try the double 4-in-hand, it fixes most of the lopsidedness, and is really just as simple. Thats the knot I prefer now.

    It's not much but I think that the norse project pants is a good find. Not my size so it'll be a flip. Seems pretty rare on ebay though. Not a ton of history.
    And the pink color of the shirt is 100x nicer in real life. I need a proper camera...

    Man, I pass up Ted Baker ties all the time. I didn't think they had a secondary market.

    Also I think the all black side zips are probably the ones worth your time. The painted ones or the loafer-y things less so.
