    I haven't gotten my notification from the mail room yet, but if they have it I should hear from them today. I'm working from home so with luck I'll have it in my greedy hands tomorrow. I'll update the thread when I do.

    Quick update: I heard late Tuesday that the package had been delivered to the mail room at work. I didn't go into the office yesterday, so this morning was the first chance I had to pick up the package...and it's been misplaced. I moved buildings over the weekend so the working hypothesis is that it was sent to the wrong building, but I'm waiting to hear back from them. I'll update the thread when I know more.

    The package was in fact sent to my old office by our mail room and will be delivered to me tomorrow.

    Atlas, can you do either the green rlpl or the blue borrelli instead of the canali? The squares are great.

    do you think the canali tie is equal in quality and versatility as the YH?

    just my 2 cents, but i think this is how the swap box meets its demise. Not singling you out personally at all atlas....the canali is a nice tie sure...and the MSRP was probably an easy $100...but trading a popular SF approved tie for a tie that my cousin would wear to prom isnt a fair trade.

    again, not singling you out at all, and im sorry if i came across as a dick...mebbe im just in a shit mood today....hopefully others will provide more feedback.


    I also think a pocket square swap box would blow the pants off of any tie swap box. No idea why this hasnt taken off yet.
