This is Dimbleby Not sure if this is actually a Duchamp, but you get the picture. edit: Joshman beat me to it: Jon Snow also wears Victoria Richards ties which are hawt: Beautiful ties

Well according to one guy in England, the second hand shops are positively brimming with unwanted Duchampers. I wish he would give a few addys of them so i could get some for the old collection.

And, many mainstream Americans love Duchamp ties.

They are well made but, in my recent experience, not quite as good as Drake's. Ede & Ravenscroft offers an excellent selection of Macclesfield silk ties. Ede doesnt really seem to sell them online though.

I might be wrong but I don't think they make their ties in England anymore. The English dont seem to have that killer shop that sells a good variety of ties like Paul Stuart in the USA, or do they?
