Never had a bad Drake's tie either. I like Drake's exactly because they make robust and substantial (for lack of a better word) ties that I find are perfect for tweeds and flannels (which I wear about 9 months out of the year). No doubt do I love my Vanda ties, but I find that they work better for the warm months since they are so incredibly lightweight. It just don't feel right to wear them with tweeds (which I occasionally do anyway, since I like the damns ties so much).
