    I swapped out the lightly worn unsaturated green Exquisite Trimmings on the right for the once worn Isaia 7-fold on the left:

    I would've swapped something for the rust rooster knit, too, but it's pretty short.

    MyMil - keep the rooster knit.

    unsaturated green Exquisite Trimmings - this was brand new when I put it in the box. it's raw so it looks broken in.

    Unbel's address: not yet.

    Rooster knit: thank you! Generous.

    Exquisite Trimmings: maybe somebody tried it on to see how it knots—there are some wrinkles in the right spots. But it's still awesome. :D I love raw silk.

    Isaia: it is. Wool (and cashmere? Maybe just cashmere? Can't remember.). It just doesn't work for my personality.

    I got Unbel's address. Box will ship out on Thursday, since I can't go to the post office tomorrow.

    :)

    mymil - when you have the tracking #, please post it in this thread.

    shoes - once the loop is completed, we will confirm the interest of the participants for the next round.

    I know some have posted in this thread and stated interest. There will be an open enrollment period and 10 person maximum to keep this running as smoothly as it has been.

    I hope there will be some added bells and whistles this time around as well that will be announced once the line up is complete.

    It would be nice to diversify the box with some pocket squares this next run.

    I anticipate that the box will complete the loop by Mid-Feb.

    Will do! I'm shipping it out during y lunch break today. I also tossed in a wool pocket square from either Kent Wang or Howard Yount, I can't remember which.

    In the meantime, today is the Rooster knit from TSB...

    That Rooster knit is so crispy, and exactly as it is supposed to be worn, with a cardigan / sweater or vest. Exactly as I wore it.

    There is a lot of win in the box, which is hard to appreciate unless put together in an ensemble.
