    i'm not a photographer, though i work with them daily. great job on the light box, but i do think you need one secondary light from directly in front that's unfiltered to pop out the details.

    Photos look awesome! I use a 5000k professional color viewing table and I think the light quality looks just as good. I am definitely impressed. However, you are going to need a much larger box to shoot a suit....or horse barn.

    That is what i did with the dunhill tie I was never comfortable with its authenticity.

    I'll bite. I just needed to do some thrift therapy after a rough couple of days, so I wanted to do something nice out of something bad. Shirt is accounted for, and I let that go for $20, and I just want to get the jacket gone for the $40 I paid plus $6 for shipping. Paying it forward or something like that...

    The shoes came out lovely. Major props! But I think for taking photos of ties, this is overkill. I can take just as good photos of ties with a piece of white computer paper and my DSLR with a bounce flash (or regular flash if I wanted to).

    Figured this was cheaper then a DSLR although that is on my thrift list [​IMG] Shot with an old Lumix DMC-FZ5

    Plan is to get a fridge box and do the same thing for the suits [​IMG]

    OK someone buy this before I do. I have a navy Saks Made in Italy I picked up before the Holidays from Kloober so I really don't need another.

    $40 is a respectable price, will you be in trouble with the wife if too many packets go through your door? :laugh:.

    Two Mystery Picks Today. Any ideas/info?

    First is a very sturdy heavy wool suit, Maker - Neumann (Apparently Austrian?) date 1969, 3 roll 2 jacket, Pleated/cuffed pants. Button Fly. A lot of little details that scream quality.

    Vintage Suede jacket. Peak lapels, leathher buttons (hemisphere), zip out liner. I have pictured the only tag in the jacket, I assume the leather patch had the maker on it at one time.
