The silk will be more like the Tie Bar ties and will most likely be low grade Chinese silk.2) If you are price sensitive try the last tie in your list as it is the closest to what you...
Claghorn,"I think the preference for knits over grenadines lies in the casualness of knits."I wonder if the perceived casualness is cultural?"Shaped over sock all day.
