3. Charvet & Kiton
I own 18 Marinella ties (out of 162 total) of different construction and all of them tie very well and are of exquisite quality. Sadly, I rarely go out formal these days; nonetheless; they are a joy to watch.
However, if I have to pick only one favorite out of all ties that I have, it would be an old red tie with fine silver embroidery made by Versace (and this, IMHO, is a good testament to my poor taste :-)
