New & Lingwood ties

post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 
Anyone know who makes them? They're Italian, proudly announce their "Hand Made" status, and tie a really nice know. Wish I had more. Altea? (My N&L feel more substantial than my Alteas...)

They are very substantial and make a good, rich knot. I dont know that a dimple with be simple to achieve.

The feeling more substantial is probably a product of the silk used for the tie as well as the interlining and it would generally not matter who does the construction.

Michael Drake makes a lot of them for N&L. Veddy nice. Check out the smaller of the two shops at the bottom of the Picadilly Arcade in London.

Not really a problem. In fact, the very malleability of the N&L tie I was wearing today prompted the question: That's at the end of the afternoon, but the knot held a nicely defined dimple for most of the day.

They used to make good ties (maybe by Drakes). Can't say the same about their newer offerings. I might be wrong but I don't think they make their ties in England anymore.

The English dont seem to have that killer shop that sells a good variety of ties like Paul Stuart in the USA, or do they?

And Duchamp and Hermes. My two favourites. Although admittedly both aren't English.

Well, no. As I said in my OP, they're made in Italy. But I don't really see that as a demerit...

Harrods

Brioni, Hermes, Charvet, Duchamp, Turnbull & Asser, etc and if you like designer ties, they have lots of them too. Although, do not know if they have Drake's.

Designwise and colourwise, yes.
I bet some of the so-called senior members here would say they are ugly in the extreme.

Most of the silks are woven in England Because they have complexes but a lot of other members including many non posting readers love that sort of thing. And, many mainstream Americans love Duchamp ties.
