    D'oh! Why the hell did I pass on those. First actual "tie" bow ties I've seen too. Ugh. I doubt they're still there but if they are I'll grab them..

    I've sold a few RRL shirts for $40-50. Definitely flippable depending upon the condition/style IMO.

    Anyone have experience with borrelli shoes? I had never seen a pair and almost didn't recognize. I think they were a 42 or 43 and I'll be checking on them tomorrow (caught them while the store was closing). Not much on eBay to go on!

    Definitely do it. Last (and first) time I saw bowties, they were older BB's, and I remember combing the rack for every last one. As soon as I got done, girl walks up, sees them, and starts searching for the rest. Unfortunately, I had left her only the ones with bow ends so big, only a clown would wear them.

    Long story short, they are pretty sought after, for whatever reason.

    Are you sure it's not "Borelli" shoes (one "r"), which are, unfortunately, complete crap?: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=borelli+shoes. If not, nice score...never seen shoes by Borrelli on here.

    I, also, rarely see them. One of my favorite days in the last few years was finding a trove of Turnbull and Assers and assorted other high-end bow ties, all of which I kept. I'm an addict.

    Dang! There were a couple older Talbott bow ties too. Ugh. Lesson learned.
