Those look nice, but I've not been impressed by The Knottery's ties in practice. The ones I ordered were rather flimsy, the material and finishing looked cheap, and I don't think I will bother again. But they are probably 'good value' at that price level.

Here's most of my repp stripe ties. I haven't included any of my horizontal striped numbers:
Above: vintage - all 1960s Brooks Brothers, except the far left, which is some anonymous blend... all are around 3".
Below: contemporary - Drakes, Conrad Wu x 2, Liberty (I never wear this one any more, so if anyone wants it, please ask - the ground is a kind of mid-blue heavy silk twill with pink and orange stripes). All are 3" - 3 1/4".
Being English, I don't wear actual regimental / club / school / college ties - except for things that I have the right to wear. I'll try to dig out my school leaver's tie some time - it is in quite spectacularly bad taste (pink, maroon, green). And that reminds me of one thing to correct in the OP - real British regimental, club and school / college ties don't necessarily have a 'ground' as such - many have equal distribution of stripe colour.
