(Bolding mine). I'm surprised to read this, as my only complaint with the current RLPL madder ties is that they aren't dark enough. They are Nos. 38, 40, and 45 in the link below:

Just out of curiosity, what have you read, heard, or observed to suggest that "the English don't like them"?

I think that fits right in with good old RL pandering to the prevailing taste. I was thinking of the ones that youd find in a quiet old London shop or haberdashers here.

Andrew, you may have put your finger on it when you said that Paul Stuart have them every fall. They don't seem to have any now, but given that this tie style is more of a fall/winter accessory, maybe I'm looking at the wrong time of year.

Out of season now. I ordered them for next season for our store. They are a fall item as they go nicely with tweeds and heavier fabrics. Start looking early next season and if you can't find them send me a message as we will have them for next season.
