All the IP ties I own have that label, even the ones clearly made by someone else (e.g., Hober).

Haven't had the pleasure of buying Drakes

I've seen some recent H&B made in England (only the 50 oz silk though) but not sure if they still make any there. RJ ties, N&L are all made in Italy too.

Is Oscar Udeshi still making ties (and shirts)?

You've introduced your OWN line and didn't tell us? But, of course they would be nice. Any medieval tapestry designs?

When I look through my ties ... the stand outs are the usual ... Drakes, Charles Hill, New & Lingwood, T&A.

While I am a fan of British tailoring and shirtmaking ... I am not so loyal when it comes to the makers of ties. In terms of woven patterns ... I can't stay away from Charvet and Knize.

I know that many of the tailors on SR offer ties ... and while I tended to avoid for most of the 70s-90s ... the quality seems to have improved of late.

Drakes all the way. My Drakes are probably my favorite ties.

What about other Jermyn St brands?

They are brands, and with few exceptions, don't make ties (or shirts), never mind in Britain.

Mafoofan, Yes, Atkinsons do indeed make ties in Ireland and they have for many years. They are a wonderful family style company that really is a pleasure to work with. They used to sell some fabric to tie makers, but currently Sam Hober is the only company in the world that Atkinsons sells Irish poplin to. We are also the only makers of bespoke Atkinsons Irish poplin ties including 6-fold ties and pocket squares made from Atkinsons Irish poplin. If "British ties" include the UK then I would cast my vote for Atkinsons Irish poplin as the best British ties, based on the wonderful quality of their Irish poplin as well as their history and tradition. I am not sure but they may possibly be the oldest maker of ties in the UK. If not the oldest then one of the oldest.

RJ ties are now made in Italy? A great artist dies in me.

Udeshi is a designer. A very talented one, who has high standards for the quality of the items he sells.

I thought you had a favorable blog post about them? Or at least their pocket squares, which could make FNB blush...

The only RJ-branded spinoff I launched was the late RJ cat. Join the Posse. OBEY feline.

You would like the ties at A l'escalier d'argent in the gardens of the Palais Royal.

The ones in Henry Poole look nice too.
