You just blew my mind. I conceptually knew there were ties that expensive, but to see one... the most expensive (at retail) ties I've handled are regular silk Kitons. Anyway, I saved this for a separate post so it wouldn't get buried in the pants: I also found a shirt. This was in a batch of Armani Le Collezioni Made in Italy shirts, and ~20 J.W. Nordstrom shirts were with it. Thing is, I picked it up on the basis of seeing the handwork, but did I get taken for a ride? It's for Bernini Beverly Hills, no maker tag listed. Handwork around the collar (in white!), hand sewn side gussets and armholes (in black). Handsewn shanked buttons - in cross shape, not crows foot, curiously. Buttonholes I'm not 100% sure on, black thread on black fabric = hard to see. Thick MOP buttons, etc... yeah. I had to pick it up based on quality. Oddities - 2 pockets on the front, plus the white-on-black stitching... but dang, this thing is quality. I've seen that content tag before on one of my nice shirts - can't remember which specifically, and not sure if that would ID it or not? Anyone have any ideas? It's a 15.5 so I think there'd be some folks interested... because it's available.
