Interesting. Are domestic produced stuff much worse than made in Italy? I actually like a lot of the designs coming out of these USA tie guys but just wasn't sure about the quality.
Also kind of hijacking my own thread here but I came across this shop, hillflint.com, who carries some hitsman ties, but perhaps more interestingly also has a wool 'take ivy' sweater: http://www.hillflint.com/products/the-class-of-1968-sweater
. ever heard of these guys?
