Ben Silver Regimental Ties

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Can someone please comment on the quality of these ties? - at $80 they're not cheap but I like one of their designs (which is the same as that of my alma mater) Panzer

Ben Silver has some nice patterns and colors. The quality is somewhere in the middle of the pack. I also had the rear seam come apart on a one year old tie and they repaired it no charge. For around the same price you can get Brooks Bros. or a Robert Talbort( better ties, more money).

I had a couple and they were OK. Very conservative. A bit too skinny for my taste. My taste runs to ties about 3.75 to 3 7/8 inches wide. A lot of guys here like skinnier ties. I ended up giving them to the Salvation Army because I really didn't like them that much.

Was it just the skininess that you didn't like, or did they also not tie a good knot? Thanks, Panzer

Mostly just the skinniness. They looked funny to me. The construction is OK, but at that price point, compared to what you can get on Ebay and elsewhere, they aren't worth it, IMO.

My God, these are so beautiful. I must buy them all.

I emailed Ben Silver about their tie widths but have yet to receive a response. What other tie-makers make colorful patterns similar to the Regimental collection?

Kent, look at Robert Talbott, J Press and Brooks Brothers for regimentals.

IMO Ben Silver isn't really known for Regimental ties. Instead: Atkinsons Ties, Brooks Brothers, Parsley Neckwear, and Sam Hobler are great. I actually wrote an article for my blog on what makes a classic British necktie: http://www.ties-necktie.com/blog/wra...h-Necktie.html Hope this helps

I thought that's what Ben Silver was known for. That, and expensive blazer buttons. Maybe I'm wrong.

I think they look nicer in the catalogue than in person, and are a bit too skinny in my book.

They are very much known for regimentals, although the quality isn't of the same level as their price.

It has some common misunderstandings about silk tie quality, even so-called expert. Read a blog article to clarify the silk tie quality concept: 100% silk ties - how much you know.
