    Is that like thee Johnny Carson? - from The Tonight Show? So celebs having their names on clothing is nothing new then? I know we had that "Kenny Rogers" thing on the first page of this threak.

    I read somewhere that JC had his own clothes line. That could be it. I know I've seen it in thrift stores.

    Since when does Heritage imply 60% cotton and 40% polyester? (And this is the second time I've seen this. The last one was Heritage Twill).

    And this fabric was so thin that it was on the other end of the spectrum from broadcloth.

    TBH I don't think "Heritage" has much meaning when it comes to apparel. Just a marketing buzzword to appeal to hipsters. I'm sure one of worse abusers of "Heritage" has to be Ralph Lauren, which is frequently used on their overpriced made in China stuff.

    "Made in/Fabrique au Hong Kong" has some heritage about it doesn't it? :D

    Does it play a tune? I can't have a festive tie if it doesn't play music.

    Actually that would have been perfect back in February, Year of the Snake.

    What's that one to the right, the blue and white? Looks like someone had a bad day with the correction fluid.

    Dry hands are a product of flipping through hundreds of items of clothing + hand sanitizer.

    But your concern for my dermatological condition is duly noted.
