I like XMI ties (generally available at Nordstrom) in the midgrade range.

They do an especially good job with the collars - IMO. The stated minimum order is 4 shirts - but I think they will...
In Philly, I get shirts made at Barton & Donaldson which is "high-end" for Philly (I think) and generally pay $215 - $250 depending on fabric.
Over the past three years I have spent $4K to $6K per year on clothes, shoes etc. in order to build out my wardrobe. My guess is that I'll drop back closer to $3K now that most of that build out is complete.

What do you think of Gran Sasso (Italian) and A. Paine (English) (Hope I spelled those right). I have picked up one of each recently - like them both, but can attest to their longevity.

The shoes are brand new and have never been worn. I asking $250 (plus shipping), which is what I paid. I will post pics later (hopefully tonight). PM me if interested Thanks Is that UK 10D? I am assuming this is US since standard width on UK shoes is an E. Pics...

I came to my opinion in the following ranking of the four italian shoe makers (not taking price into account, just quality): mantellassi martegani moreschi magnanni Magli? (Bruno) or as OJ would say Ugly-ass Bruno Magli
