    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.

    I'm sure you meant "COO of LuxeSwap, (Beanie Babies and Pogs division)", in which case I'm on it, boss! [​IMG]

    Dupont and Tina Cosmo are under rated on this thread. But are quality ties that are not seen that much here in the states.

    Men's for sure. The tassels are the give away. And then there's the size.

    I found an overcoat with this label, does this mean it's vicuna? The reason I ask is the coat does not feel as soft as a 100% cashmere overcoat I have. It is lightweight for it's size. The only other tag I can find on the coat is a garment union tag from 1949-1962.

    After 50 years would cashmere not loose it's softness? Just wondering, Tx

    Probably not, likely similar to Alpacuna.

    Dunno, I found a HSM Silver Trumpeter 100% cashmere top coat yesterday that was soft as ever. Had the 50's union tag. Had to leave it for much moth damage.

    Before I take this for alterations and have it torn apart, can anyone identify these buttons? Jacket is vintage, 100% cashmere, made in Austria. Label is 'international designers collection for Brandee and Wine'

    The cashmere overcoat I have is from the same era as the Andecuna one and it's softer
