Does anyone actually pay full price for neck ties? - Page 2

post #16 of 46
Oddly enough, for a long time the only ties I paid full price for were knit ties, because nice ones were hard to come by on sale in the US

I've never paid full price and don't plan on it.

I have about 50 ties and I've only paid full price for 1 tie; my only Sam Hober. I'll definitely pay full price for another Sam Hober, but for now I'm content with buying 10 ties on clearance at Century 21 during their sales.

Not typically, but I would. Especially if I ever were to order bespoke from Cappelli...and I'm really tempted to do so for some wool ties.

I pay full price for tie if I've been looking for that certain design. Life is too short to go thrifting all the time hoping to find that perfect tie.

Generally, only for bespoke and a few Charvet pointed end bowties that I needed on short notice and that I don't think I will ever see on sale. But except for bespoke/special order and the occasional bowtie, I don't really buy many ties any more.

I paid full price for a Kent Wang 100% Cashmere, and it was worth it.

But other than that, couldn't tell you the last time I did.

I have 15 odd ties and I have never paid full retail for almost 90% of them. I wouldn't have qualms paying full price for something I really want though...

You could ask. But he can't answer as he has been banned.

Does paying outlet "full price" before it goes on sale there count?

I would probably pay full price for a Kent Wang tie, but knowing that so many are out there to be had for deep discounts, and being somewhat short of gobs of money, I generally can't bring myself to pay full price.

Likely because some find them somewhat garish and kitchy - as if the only point they are favored is to say "Look, I have a Hérmes tie." While some enjoy Hérmes, I find their tie patterns to be the men's equivalent of Louis Vuitton logo purses. But this is the opinion of a man who cannot afford Hérmes ties, so take it as jealousy, if you will.
