I managed to score three borrelli 7-folds off ebay for a pittance as one of my first ever tie purchases when I transitioned to looking like a proper Prof. They tie knots so beautifully that I happily wear them even though they are 3.75 inches wide! I thought I might have gotten lucky, but Stitch, you seem to have had good experiences too.
Borrelli's don't get mentioned as much these days when talking about ties, but I'm a fan, though they are hard to find at a decent price (perhaps shop the finest?). They are, I think, way too expensive new.
