Clement San Remos!
These are $70/each (retail) tires I picked up from Nashbar closeout for $35/pair! They are Kevlar, 290tpi cotton casing, belted, hand-made 210g tires. They won't make any fashion statments, but these are probably the best riding tires I've used since I had Vittoria OPEN Corsa CXs. For those who haven't ridden the Vittoria's, they are amazingly supple with exceptional casings. In fact, the cotton casing looks identical the the Vittoria's. The tread is natural rubber, which means it works in the wet. No flats or slices after 4 weeks on riding. No noticable tread wear, unlike the Conti GP 3000. After the first ride, I called Nashbar up and ordered 3 more sets, these tires are THAT good!

You must have bought the remaining tires, or the closeout you mention is over. I just looked on Nashbar's site, and I only see the San Remo's for 24.95/ea.
