    I was thinking the same thing. I was actually wanting each person to take a pic of the box as they received it, and what it looks like as they are sending it out. So we have a good catalog of what people are adding, taking, and it will be pretty cool to see what other people are choosing. It would also create a nice expectation of when the box will be arriving at the next destination.

    Capping the list at 20 is a really good idea, because after this thing gets rolling I can see where some folks would want to jump on the list and that can muddy things up a bit.

    Current List:

    DerekS
    IrateCustomer
    Porcelain Monkey
    Imhoff

    ***EDIT*** I added Imhoff, so we now have 16 spots left.

    Are we making any decisions as to what is or is not acceptable as far as brands are concerned?

    I think that would severely limit who could participate. It starts to become a bit of a pissing match at that point. In addition, I don't think anyone wants to put in a polyester Van Heusen tie while taking a cashmere Kiton. That would be pretty bush league, and since we are taking photos of what was taken and what was contributed...it's all going to be out there for everyone to see.

    I would join but I have crap for ties (think PRL and Altea) and I would be self conscious about what I add. I mean, what if my tie doesn't get chosen! :laugh:

    I am posting here so I can keep track and see what happens as I think this is a cool idea. :)

    Let me clarify, they are old cheap PRL that I found for super cheap at thrifts. Most have stains/pulls I did not notice, I just haven't thrown them out yet.

    The nice one I have is a PRL cashmere in navy, it is my staple fall/winter tie and I can't give it away since it goes with just about everything. I sold the burgundy cashmere I had or else it would have been a strong contender for this thread :)

    Looking back I can see how that came out the wrong way, I apologize.
