Favourite Tie label? - Page 3

post #31 of 66
I like Talbott Best of Class ties, although I am quite puzzled and discouraged by their common usage of the label as the keeper. For ties in this price range, I think this is inexcusable.

For value, I like Ike Behar ties.

For exquisiteness, I like Ferragamo.

Charvet ties have only the label as a keeper but the Paris store will add a keeper if you order bespoke.

Yes, they did for me but they still didn't tuck the keeper into the center seam. Perhaps my French...

I just had to find the company after you mentioned it. What a great name for a clothing firm, Pagonis Some nice stuff on their site. I will have to check it out when I next end up in Athens.

I have some older Hermes ties that I stiil enjoy...

Current favorites:
Battistoni: C21 has them for $35 or so - very nice ties
Holliday & Brown: ditto, but approaching $40 - super!
L. Barbera: ditto
Borrelli
Kiton

Nifty newcomers:
Barba: got one from edmorel - beautiful
C. Franco: finally took the plunge - a winner!; have to admit I got a little nervous when I started to read the NYT's and felt knot slowly begin to tighten

Richard James - Modernist interpretation of boring Charvet
Leonard - Modernist interpretation of boring Hermes

Kiton and Armani get my vote as ugliest and most boring ties ever made.

I guess I'll be the first unoriginal one here and say that my favorite tie brands are Kiton (7-fold) and the Brionis of several years ago that had a printed pattern atop a woven texture/pattern, the Brioni script screened on (prior to the golden plaque), and the floating self-fabric tie keeper.

Ask to look at their 7-folds and you'll wet your pants laughing.

The Charvet ties all over that floor are gorgeous; as a fellow RJ fan most of them don't do all that much for me although they have one new design that is nice.

Re: the above comments on H&B -- the last H&B I purchased retail cost more than Marinella at Bergdorfs', so I can't call it the poor man's Marinella. It's the prevalence and lack of recognition that keep it easier to find at a reasonable price at C21, etc. Saks' site says the ties are now made in Italy. AFAIK everything else of theirs inc pocket squares already is. I'm wearing a H&B tie from yoox right now, a beautifully deep yellow paisley tie. Impeccable.

I don't actually own any but I saw a large selection of Italo Ferretti ties today and was simply blown away. Especially for those interested in printed ties, they were truly something to behold.

I also really dig FIG ties from Daniel Figueredo.
