The tie has side seams and has four different patterned silks. I don't like traveling with a bunch of ties. They usually come out of my luggage wrinkled and rumpled. I usually roll them up and try to store them someplace they don't get smashed. I've tried to lay them flat also, but the same thing happens. I've seen a few different tie carrier options. How do your guys travel with your ties?
A few options for packing ties while traveling:
I take grenadines which are very hard to wrinkle
If I'm packing shoes I might roll one up and store in each shoe.
If I'm taking a hanging garment bag I might roll into a loose oval which fits around the outside of the shoulder pocket of the garment bag (the pocket in the angle between the upper corner and the shoulder of the hanger) the inner oval is a good size to hold a few pairs of socks or my cuff link case or whatever
I got a cylindrical pleather tie case from The Tie Bar which can hold two ties
I got a traditional long rectangular leather Coach tie case off eBay which can hold six ties
Never get wrinkles and rumples with any of the above options.
