Now that prompts a question! What techniques do people use for cleaning ties. For quite grim stains I've had success recently using Isopropyl Alcohol, or Rubbing Alcohol, as follows:- test a small area on rear first- soak a bit of cloth with alcohol and rub onto tie, you want to get the tie quite wet- dry with a hair dryer- repeat 2 and 3, sometimes a lot!This managed to completely remove a pen mark from a tie the other day, which staggered me, but is also pretty good on...
You're probably right for a lot of them.
Thanks!
70% off at Oxfam, so nearly all of these were £2-£3. Lewins, Tyrwhitts, Austin Reeds:   I say nearly all, the top right was more, and I was wondering if this is grenadine?
Have been on a run of coming out of shops empty handed here in the UK. Maybe everyone's too busy enjoying the end of the Easter holidays to donating. So I've been going through some stuff in the back of the wardrobe that I've not got round to selling and found the following tie. Anybody able to identify? Suspect it may be worthless, but nice to know. Thanks.
  Correct to leave, cheap UK chain store
Some pickings from UK over last couple of weeks, most shirts I'll pay 3GBP to 4GBP, with the aim of at least trebling. Ties are generally 2GBP with same aim.                                         
Thank you.
Cantarelli?
I've lurked for a while, and do a bit of thrifting here in UK, though it's not as good as some of your places clearly!   Latest pickup was this tie for £1, T&A Grenadine. Does it look legit, as I've never seen a T&A label like it? Also asymmetrical at the bottom, but could just have lost shape over time and need presssing.   Thanks, Edward
