DWC Giveaway: Italian silk ties

Post by Seppia » Sat Nov 14, 2015 2:04 pm

I am from Como in Italy (home to the slightly famous lake Como) and my city is the Mecca of silk.
It's a little known fact but almost all of the super high end silk (notable exceptions being Lanvin and Hermes) comes from my town.
These is approximately a 99% chance that your silk tie, if made in Italy, comes from Como.
Now because of family matters I know personally most of the owners of the factories that design and produce silk.
For fun, I had had a few ties made with a custom label "lake Como ties" and sold them around and/or used them as gifts or myself.

I'm relocating back to Europe in a month, and I'm going back home, where silk ties are ubiquitous, and don't need these any more.

For your reference these are made in Italy, 100% silk, and of a quality level that would command a retail price of $120-180 depending on the brand.

I'm doing a DWC giveaway open to members with 200+ posts.

I will randomly draw three winners who will be able to pick one tie each.

Pick a number between 1 and 99 (included), I will do the random drawing Monday November 16 around 830pm eastern and ship Tuesday.

I will also sell these ties at cost of anybody's interested, $19 each and $80 for 5 of them.
I have approximately 80 of these, assorted and would love to get rid of them all.

Here are all the available models (winners can pick whatever they like)

As an interesting side note, at least I think it is, the tie I was wearing this morning on FOX NEWS is from my tailor and is one of two in the world. Any guesses who owns the other one???


That's right: President Hollande of France. Solidarity, bitches. It's what we do.

I know, right??!

I figure that when I do wear them they better be amazing.

A funny aside...I was on a range all morning yesterday running live-fire vehicle hits so when I showed up at the network - with my tailored digs - I. Had. My. Boots. On.

FML :-)
