What do you guys think of this Hugo Boss tie?

I'm guessing this isn't part of Hugo Boss's budget line right? Please correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks.

Budget line or not, it seems a trifle expensive for a solid black silk, esp. from Boss. I have a solid black silk RLPL and don't think I paid more than about the equivalent of $50 for it, though that was at outlet.

Any other opinions?

I've only had one Boss tie years ago. I wasn't impressed.

I've one tie from Hugo Boss and I assume that they belong to the same line.
I like the design but that's all. Wouldn't recommend it.

If you just want solid black check out Macy's and get one of the many brands on sale for $25.

It is hard to see from that pic how wide the tie is, they seem to be getting narrower these days. Macy's and the like are a little behind in the absolute latest cuts of ties. Express would probably have a black tie in the narrower cut.
Some Macy's do carry Hugo Boss and the ties are all $85 as well.

Not sure other than Express where you would go for super trendy cuts on ties. Maybe H&M or Zara if you are close to a big city.

I just recently got a solid black tie, it was an ML|Material London on sale for ~$20 at Macy's, I'm quite happy with it.

I didn't know Hugo Boss had a budget line.

At any rate, it does seem a little expensive for a plain black tie and I say that as one of the few defenders of HB on this forum.

I'd pass. For some reason I havent been able to find the right black satin tie for some time now. I started out with a helmut lang, then moved onto a brioni before buying a solid black gucci tie. They all tie like crap and make a horrible knot. Last night I was wearing the brioni out to dinner and passed Andrew's ties in philadelphia. I grabbed a black satin tie for 39$, switched it for the brioni (after paying of course) and it looked great. I was contemplating a Kiton but after spending close to 300$ on black ties the 39$ one looks the best.

Should a plain black tie, or any solid, be lower priced?

Yes. If you're going for a basic, go for someone who doesn't try to sell at a premium just because theirs is a designer brand. For the same money you can get a similar tie, either in better silk or for less money, or both.

Exarctly. I have no problem paying a premium for something interesting but the quality of Boss' tie offerings isn't worth paying $85 for a black tie. If it were an interesting looking tie I'd say go for it (and I did on Friday actually), but not a solid.
