I sure miss the trad discussions.

To be trad is to be above trends

Trad is uninterested in trends, not "above" them. Only the emotionally insecure need to assign a status to their attire. But then it's also true that only the emotionally insecure need to change their wardrobe every time fashion designers tell them to.

First of all congrats on the latest addition to your family.

As for the Ben Silver sale they had as you would expect tons of ties (though not as many repps as I would have liked) their own label, Drakes, Kiton, etc. lots of bows as well. Most regular ties were around $40-$50, but good bargains to be had in the $20 range as well. A small table of ties with minor flaws for $15 each. Some of the flaws were on the back of the tie! Plenty of Ben Silver dress shirts most at 50%-70% off retail. Lots of sweaters, mostly cashmere and still not too cheap at 1/2 off.

Other items:

Decent selection of Lacostes and Fred Perry polos at 1/2 off.

Lock and Co. hats 1/2 off

Barracuda Jackets $199.00

A rack of belts

A small amount of shoes, sport coats and trousers (too many pleats) were also there, as well as a women's and children's section. My wife did buy a handbag of some sort.

I am sure I am forgetting some items worth mentioning, but hopefully that gives you the general idea.

Perhaps it was a poor choice of words on my part, but either way the message is the same.
