Didn't you just post in the Hober thread? If you are considering Hober ties, don't even think about getting a CT tie. They are poor to mediocre quality and not worth the price IMO. Quality>quantity.
I saw the CT sale for 50% off and got greedy to see if there was a sale to bring it down to around 60ish :) (Ive heard of 25% off sales pretty often)
But if you are correct about the Hober quality I guess I'll have to wait and get that its about the same price 60 vs 80.
Thanks for letting me know. I would have probably gone with the CT if I found a good enough sale. Now I guess ill stick to hober :)
Back to the tie discussion: I've received a handful of ties from CT, each time as a free bonus item included with the purchase of shirts. I flipped them all on eBay for about $20 to $25, which is about what CT ties should cost at retail based on their quality, in my estimation. So yes, just stick with Hober or other reputable makers.
Sorry to go off topic on this thread.
