Mail Check: Tie and Watch Band

Tie: Brooks Brothers paisley.  $8.00 eBay find and a gorgeous group of colors.  Watch band to change things up with my regular watch.  It’s cheap, but it fits me and the watch: $1.86 shipped from China.  It’s very lightweight, which I like because the watch is so heavy.

Mail check: Brooks Brothers Pocket Square

Won an auction on eBay for this great looking, brand new (original packaging and wrappings) pocket square from Brooks Brothers.  It’s plaid with pink, blue, white, and navy.  Should go great with a pink tie or a navy tie.  Price with shipping: $9.25, retail: $20.00

Today, my small order of Saphir shoe care products came in from Kirby Allison’s Hanger Project.

As soon as these stabilize to indoor temperatures, I’ll put these to work on a pair of Italian made Johnston & Murphy loafers. Before, after, and in-between pictures will be posted.
