Lands End ties

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Anyone own any Lands End ties? Opinions? Quality? How do they knot? I like a large full knot, and do tend to wear my pants a little low, so I need a thick tie so I dont end up with a tie thats too short or a knot thats too small...how will they be? Other recommendations south of $50?

I think Land's End ties provide a good price to quality ratio, especially on clearance. Some of their wovens are pretty thick, so you may want to look at them rather than the regimentals. You can find just about any brand of tie out there for under $50 if you're patient and buy on sale. I saw that VirtualClothesHorse had some very nice Nicky and Charvet on his site for example. If I had $50 to drop on a tie, I'm sure I'd look there. Also, summer sales are starting, and I know at least one of the local high end shops has a table full of very nice ties for under $50. I have my eye on a couple, but I'm waiting for them to cut prices more.

I have 2 Land's End ties, one is a Grenadine and the other is a woven. They are narrower than the Italian ties and the knot is not as thick, more along the lines of a T&A or Charvet.

Matt, Why don't you have your tailor in Vietnam make you a tie? This way you will get the exact length and width that you want. You may have trouble finding a nice 100% wool interlining in Vietnam, but a mixed fabric can work. Lands End, Brooks etc. all use a mixed fabric interlining. You can always make a 7 fold then you don't have to worry about the interlining. Good luck.

thanks for that lead - hadnt looked in overstocks, my first purchase from LE. ive just ordered 6 ties from clearance section - prices ranging from 4.50 - 22.50 - cant complain about that. $10 for shipping - total of $86....pretty good really. I wanted one other, but that bumped the shipping up another $10, so i cut the list down i purchased the following: in both blue and pink in pink Not bad, huh? Matt Edit - changed links to pics

Matt, You can't beat the price and the shipping is great. Let us know how long it takes to reach you.

Pink? What are you, some sort of sissy?.   Looks like some good stuff. I didn't know they had any marked down to $4.50. That's thrift/consignment store prices (in other words, what I usually pay). Especially at those prices I think you'll be pleased. Even with shipping you're only paying ~$14/tie.

This is my favorite. Blue and brown is an excellent combination.

Agreed. That blue/brown tie with the checked shirt is very smart. -boston
