Paul Stuart or Drake's Knit tie?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I understanD the difference in price, but if anyone has any experience with the two I would really appreciate a comparison of the two. Is the Drake's tie worth it? What are the differences? Thanks!

I don't own any Paul Stuart, so it doesn't mean much when I say to go with the Drakes. I would, however, suggest that there are probably some alternatives in price/quality somewhere between the two that should be considered. Several of our affiliate vendors carry knits (Howard Yount, Kent Wang, and Henry Carter off the top of my head)

Thanks for the info! I actually just through those two out there because I know they are made my different manufacturers, and know that most other knits are made by the same as Paul Stuart. That is one of the reasons I said price was not a huge issue as well.

You should check out this thread: "The source of Drakes knit ties" - Paul Stuart is mentioned, too.

Looking at the silk dot  ties (and judging by the shape of the dots and weave), it looks like Stuart does not share a maker with Howard Yount or Kent Wang. Don't know about Henry Carter. I think it's also possible that the woven silk is sourced from the same place but then actually constructed in different manufacturers. I don't really know much about the boutique tie business.

Howard Yount

 

Henry Carter

 

Kent Wang

Many PS ties are made by Drake's

I cannot comment on the quality of Drake's knit ties, but I love my Paul Stuart knit and find it superior to knits from BB, J. Press, and RLPL.

Oh Drakes 100%. I always think there's something of the night about Paul Stewart.
