Thats not really the case. There are a handful, but its not as common as you suggest. At one time it may have been but not today. As far as fakes from other brands, again, there are some out there, but not many. Its general its the new stuff you have to worry more about. Fakes are pretty obvious with closeup pics... if they dont provide closeups, avoid. Instead of generalizing, why dont you pick a few ties you are interested in and post their links here. I'm sure we can tell you pretty quick if its authentic or not. Here is a good example: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=157258
