I'll join the fun with some of my current favorites...fire away:
Top row (L to R): Ike Behar, Ted Baker, Trussardi, Zegna, Talbott BoC, Talbott BoC, Cifonelli, Talbott BoC, XMI Platinum, XMI Platinum Bottom row: Duchamp, Tyrwhitt, Jones NY (cheap), Charvet, Ike Behar, Ike Behar, XMI Platinum, Zegna, Hilditch & Key, Zegna My general guidelines are: A Woven ties only. B Abstract patterns preferred. C Avoid bland/boring ties whenever possible. D Never pay full price.
I'm currently working to add more subtle solids to my collection, along the lines of the 2 Ike Behars at bottom center. Â (PS: Tom W, I bought that exact same $1 Nautica tie from Marshall's...)
