    Hello to everyone,
    I just received from eBay a beatiful silk Duchamp PS.
    My concern is about its thickness. Are they usually so?
    My only two other PS's are by Etro (very thin silk) and Kent Wang (but it's a linen). Well, this Duchamp is even thickier than KW's linen!

    Also, do you think that this tie (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...=STRK:MEWAX:IT) is original? Seller has some more listed and I would buy a couple, but since price is a bit low, I was doubting about them being legit.

    Thanks and sorry for the dumb questions!

    Tie looks genuine, and about normal price for a discontinued design.

    Thickness of PS's vary a lot, woven silks can be quite thick.

    You may have got the PS from me. I've sold a few in the last month or so. They silk is very thick - so are most of the ties.

    LostLaundry is a good seller - all the items are genuine.

    Thanks to all for your replies and in particular StephenStyle for this beatiful pocket square (I actually bought from him, without knowing he was a SF member). Surely recommended!
