All Things Considered, the Best Ties - Page 7

post #91 of 154
I like Ike Behar ties for a second tier brand. They have a nice weight to them and the silk seems like good quality, but then again I am a novice.

Hermes gets beat up a bit here but they do have a wonderful drape and they do hold up well.

The best ties out there can be bought at this China-based eBay store.

I've bought three so far.

In my opinion they represent the arrival and not the starting point along a gentleman's journey in the world of elegance, and need a superior good taste to be loved, differently from Marinella' s ties that are much more easily appreciated. A sophisticated connoisseur will distinguish them among all the others.

iammatt: Love that Rubinacci. Looks like it beats CF's hands down. Love the colors in that one too. Very rich.

i just noticed the used tie i bought from conn is a rubinacci. it actually ties a very easy nice knot and stays that way all day. it is not a 7fold but still a great tie nonetheless.

i just purchased 2 paisley isaia 7folds from chorse, i hope they turn out great.

I'm sure they'll be decadent!

I noticed you got #5 and #7... you didn't like #6 - the red/white one?

Are Anna Matuozzo's ties at this level as well?
I would say her 7 folds are as nice...

I'm more interested in the wool fabric you have there.

I would say that the finishing may even be a little nicer. The silks are completely different, and both are different from Marinella, most of the time I like Rubinacci's silks more, but not always. Anna's ties are, by default, wider but can be ordered narrow.

Excellent collection. Who makes the fourth from the left that looks like a grenadine?

I brought a few ties in San Francisco at Wilkes, (amazing store by the way) and I brought Luciano Barbera and Massimo Bizzocchi ties.

Both are very very good ties.

The workmanship on the Bizzocchi is outstanding.

Why do people wear a watch? So they know what the time is at ALL times. LaCrosse provides deadly accurate, atomic time, and set themselves. Save your Citizen junk. Citizen watches don't set themselves. Post all the ridiculous emoticons you want. LaCrosse watches are the way to go.
