You are paying to wear a label at that point. Also, nobody knows you are wearing a Tom Ford tie except yourself. It seems silly to pay that much for a tie IMO. Does the tie, tie itself?

I agree on $285 being overkill for a tie, but even if you have a skilled hand at making great knots, a cheaply woven tie wont dimple as well nor allow for thicker knots unless one goes beyond the four in hand. I have a few Tom Ford ties, all purchased in and around $110 - and at that price, worth the money IMO.

$50-100 is a fair price point for me. Plenty of excellent options in that range, and I've picked up too many good condition, nice pattern ties from Kiton, Ricci, etc. at that price point to believe that I absolutely need to go higher.

Thanks! Hopefully more Battisti coming soon, they made a new line without the button & pocket. I wonder if they will sell as well as the others...

Brown with white or black poka dots, length 60", I dibs that one this time if they have that pattern. Last time I missed out on it some guy got it before me.

Utter bullshiat, IMO. Yeah, there are low end ties that don't tie well, or deform with use, but there are also plenty that don't have those issues. And it's true that high end ties shouldn't ever have those issues. But the quality difference isn't nearly that great, and certainly not enough to justify spending hundreds on a bit of silk and wool with no functional requirement to do anything but tie around your neck and look pretty. If you as a designer can't mass produce something that hangs straight and uses a wool interlining that won't deform after 5 wears for under $50, you fail at life. Lots of other makers pull it off with ease.

Talking about quality differences in ties like they actually mean anything is rather hilarious. If a tie isn't complete crap, it's gonna be fine. It hangs around your neck and look pretty.

Also, thickness of the knot is reliant on the thickness of the wool interlining or the knot chosen, both of which are unrelated to quality. You can have lower quality thick interlinings or high quality thin ones. For that matter, the wool used for high quality thin interlinings probably has to be longer staple and thus more expensive.

The answer is nada. But he makes money by selling them on B&S.
