Neiman Marcus Last Call outlet will occasionally have them, or Woodbury Tom Ford Outlet.

A lot of the stuff that men still wear is leftover from the fugly looking Victorian age. The lower classes back then bought used clothes and wore it until it was threadbare and perhaps had 2 shoes in a lifetime that they kept resoling (labour was cheap). The reason that shoes, clothes etc were so heavy and uncomfortable is that the average lower or middle classes had few clothes and the few they had needed to wear like iron.
The tie is going to go the way of the hat within 5 years.And good riddance.

You sound familiar. Which one of the previously banned trolls are you?

Who knows, but this attachment to the garb worn a few generations ago and for some silly reason is still lingering on as it dies a slow death is a sign of a prole background.

I don't mind spending $100 + on a tie if its one I really like. i find the discount stores that do sell ties at "off" prices are selling them because they're not nice enough to go for full retail, at any price. I rarely find ones I like at places like C21 or outlets, and would much prefer the real deal at a higher price in EXACTLY what I want. Its one of the motivating factors that made me want to start my own brand and doing so has given me a real appreciation for why certain ties cost more than others.

When and where can we see these?

From £25-30 navy tie from CT to £115 full retail from Drakes. Most recently $125-155 SGD (£75) from Vanda. I also like E.G. Capelli.

It's a combination of colour, texture, patterns and construction.

I must admit I prefer more weight and heft than my silk green / white pindots - taking me a while to get used to the light construction. Nevertheless, beautiful tie. The burnt chocolate wool crepe is to die for. Both from Vanda.

I've just seen the blue Donegal. Must .. Resist ..

 So far all I've bought are thrift regular neckties ($1.00 to $3.00) but have spent around $15.00 on new bowties on sale at MW and Macy's.

Typically I tend to spend around $50-$150 on a tie. For me quality is a huge factor when it comes to purchasing ties as there's no point in investing in a nice suit and then letting a cheap looking tie ruin the look I'm going for. That being said there's no real reason to spend upwards of $200 on a tie unless you're crazy about it.

I have some BB's that my dad gave me. And I have some from Kent Wang and RLPL. I'll go as high as $120 for a good tie.

As far as knit ties being expensive on ebay..

 

I got the solid green for $40 and each of the other two for $30. I LOVE the PRL knit. Just keep your eyes open. There's a yellow one for $55 or so I want as well.
