    Ive got three of the tie racks that you screw on the wall. All three were full until my tie purge this past fall.

    I had one of these. Fit 100 ties, if worn one per peg. Once I'd doubled up nearly every peg, I burned out the motor. So I moved the ties into two drawers, progressing from dots to geometric to plaid to stripe to solid. I've since outgrown THAT and have no clear solution in sight.


    How dare you, sir? How daaaare you?

    Funny you should mention that. I was just putting together a testimonial for the Take Shape For Life plan and came across this picture of me from 2009 to use as a "Before" shot. I included my "After" for comparison purposes. I think you're doing very well.

    That is the hawtness... Gorgeous!

    That's really nice. Great find!

    That's what I was thinking... The shoulders and length looked good.

    Awesome Haul!



    I scored a gray blue label in my size yesterday (will post pics of yesterdays finds later this evening), it has a similar tag in the left pocket. I haven't been able to date mine yet, but found this info on the AAAC forum regarding who made what and when for the made in USA blue label:


    Quote: here is the link to that thread: http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/...el-made-in-USA-vs-Italy&p=1022845#post1022845

    On a similar note, I left a tag size 41 polo blue label made in usa POW pattern suit at the store, along with 3-4 blue label SC's (I think 2 or 3 were POW/ glen plaid patterns, other 2 were patterned casual types, felt like maybe even a silk/wool blend, none had actual material tags). (I picked up a tweed in my size ) All SC's were in the 40-42 range. If any one is interested I can run back possibly tomorrow or during the week to see if they are still there. (Can't promise anything though!)

    I'm in D.C. for a conference, and I might be able to sneak in some thrifting. If anyone has a decent spot they'd be willing to share, feel free to PM me. Otherwise I'll just do some googling for the usual locations.
