    that is not my tie. looks like same model, but not the actual same one.

    i think its possible my tie is in the box, but not in his pics, or someone took it and i forgot, or someone took it and did not say (i hope that is not the case.)

    LET ME MAKE MYSELF ABUNDANTLY FUCKING CLEAR!!!

    I AM NOT IN ANY WAY ACCUSING ATLAS OF STEALING OR MISREPRESENTING HIS ADDITION WITH THE SILVERY RLPL TIE!!!!

    i trust atlas, i have had dealings and conversations with him outside of this thread and if he says there was no silver with white dots RLPL i 100% believe him.

    that being said, i think brands are over rated. niceness is what matters. i never even heard of the brown tie i took this round. it is kind of wide, and wrinkled at the tip (AYO!!!!) but i took it because i liked it, and thought i should take a tie with some shown wear out of the box instead of 2 pristine ones. not to mention, it has been in the box since the entirety of round one iirc, and no one wanted it.

    TD says the brand was top notch, and i believe him, but that had nothing to do with why i took it. so, i think the two tie atlas posted above are pretty nice. both simple polka dot ties in non ugly colors, plus the zegna squares. i think that is pretty fair.

    BUT HE TOOK A YHNT!!!!!! you will say. yeah, i know. everyone wants one and im glad i got one, but there are only 2 and that means only 2 people can get them. and i suppose that with all the hype about them now, no one will be happy with a supposed YHNT swap because they want it. but just looking at the ties and squares, im cool with the swap. it looks far better than much of what was in the box when i got it anyways.

    ill be back.

    lol, im a moron. i was gonna take out the above post, but ill leave the above post up because i want to make sure atlas sees it and knows i never intended to accuse him of anything.

    my RLPL with silver dots was taken by red devil. 3rd participant in the first round. it was in a spoiler and i had missed it.

    totally my bad. i am terribly sorry to have caused this ruckus and brouhaha. i sincerely apologize. and i feel like a giant assmunch. :(

    that was very kind of you, but quite unnecessary imo.

    its safe to assume that everyone is being held to a VERY high standard.

    yes. and though i think atlas should have kept the YHNT, i think he really upped the ante of honorable behavior by what he did. i hope things stay that way.
