It’s on sale: Polo Ralph Lauren black tie accessories — Ralph Lauren is having a 25% off sale on select items on their site with code RLGIVING12. Frankly, there’s not much there to pick from that’s sale eligible, but I did notice their black batwing bowtie and cummerbund were on sale. 

Oh, and also available in black watch (bowtie and cummerbund), for those of you attending a more festive black-tie party this winter.

Vintage 1950s Black Watch Tartan Wool Tie

In case you missed my post last night, I’ve set up a little bigcartel storefront to sell some vintage ties. Briefly after launching the store, I made my first sale: the tie pictured above, along with a black watch pocket square. Go me!

I’ve drawn my paycheck for the past 6 years while performing customer service and shipping functions for an online apparel retailer, so I like to think that I know what I’m doing. So far it’s off to a good start.

Check out his store!

WIWT: 1*5-2.15*2.1+5*2
Yeah, I have on purple silk knots too, if you were wondering. 

Normally, I’d be so-so on the idea of having matching necktie and jacket patterns, but that brown cardigan makes this work so well and minimizes the effect really well.
Also, I don’t think anyone’s really as passionate a fan of black watch gear as acutestyle — and it really rivals his fandom of gingham.

Snagged this black-watch Pendleton wool scarf off of eBay for $17 (shipped). Boom!

Moment of honesty: I can score this black-watch sport coat for under $70, but would I wear it enough to justify the spend?
