    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Need some input on this Valentino tie please: real-but-old or fake? I am leaning toward the former but am not sure.

    The tie itself feels good. Real ancient madder. It's the keeper, which looks kind of cheap, that has me second-guessing. Then again, the keepers on vintage ties from similar makers I've found aren't especially substantial either.

    It's really killing me. I thought it might have been Filippa K, or Koto, or S Kuhlman, but now I'm just randomly picking names with K.

    I went up to Cincy today and hit a Goodwill "boutique" next to a steak n shake. Montgomery Road I think? Apparently boutique means "anything that still has tags on it" including JC Penney brands...


    I did find a Zegna tie for $4.99 though. The original tag said $145.

    sick.

    Ask DM7 what sick means.

    Am I a bad person for saying this? Or just an old person...

    There's a thrift here that marks down anything with tags to 50% off suggested retail. Including crappy ass Michael Kors:

    The Banana Republic I'm looking for! Can't find it in any of the catalogues. Sorry for the iPhone pics. It's time to buy a new camera.

    That store generally sucks - although I did pick up three sweet silk knit ties (Bb, Talbott, unlabeled) and some made in Italy J Crew suede bucs there last summer.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I believe this is the Balmain you are looking for. Better pictures? From this one it looks like its a pretty plain check shirt, curious to see if its something interesting. Also, feel free to send it to me for verification purposes... :smarmy:
    Probably Zegna right? (or atleast whoever made Zegna's made in Switzerland stuff)
