    Nice pickup at a not-so-cheap shop today - paid 25 bucks for this damn tie but still, I'm a sucker for those six-folds. First Borrelli tie in the wild, too. :slayer:

    Also... NWT Marcoliani socks. There are more where these came from. Tons more, in cotton/nylon, wool/nylon, and plain wool. 2/3 charcoal/black color families, 1/3 beige color family, various patterns in both. Anyone ever try to sell these? They look to retail for $29 a pair but e*bay sales are nearly nonexistent. Looking at them now they're pretty nice, I might pick up a couple more for myself.

    Using watchpiece in an attempt to hypnotise. You are feeling sleepy, I want you to imagine a pasture with cows, in three seconds you will feel very sleepy. Right, you are now asleep, now listen to me:

    you do not want that tie, you do not want that tie, you do not want that tie.

    Nice score and let me know if my hypnosis worked ;)

    Eh - I think I'll go ahead and say that I'd only offer these cheap in this thread so I don't mind revealing cost (especially since I already decided to pick up a few more for myself).

    They're $6.41 a pair (including tax). Just enough that I wasn't about to go hog wild on them with no possibility of return. I could probably do something like ten bucks a pair shipped for guys on this thread, figuring 2.50 or so for postage and leaving me a buck for time and gas. Not a hugely dramatic or bold-colored selection, but very very business-dress appropriate in general.

    Nope, that was the first thing I looked for myself. Nothing crazy patternwise, mostly some variation on black, charcoal or black & grey, or mid-brown. Not even any light beige or dark browns, just the mid-browns and black/charcoal stuff. I think there were herringbones, windowpanes, ribs, maybe a birdseye of some sort, pindot... pretty much all very business-wear appropriate.

    Last night I found a nice Ermenegildo Zenga -Soft- suit at the thrift store. It is made in Switzerland from 100% Wool. I am not very familiar with the Soft line. Any help would be great. I will add details tonight on sizing.

    Picked up a few pairs of dockers d1 at marshalls for about 15 bucks each. They fit as good as incos/mabi. Also grabbed two pairs of 100% wool incos at daffys in sizes 40 and 42US. Drop me a pm if your interested in the incos. And I will get other messages, just takes some time.
