What are the makers of all the ties?

I really like that Blackwatch tie (top picture) and the tie in light brown/blue (middle picture)

I like the one in middle pic, 1st on the left. Who's the maker? looks similar to this http://vandafineclothing.com/store/neckties/446-brown-blue-double-bar-repp.html

For anyone interested in good Fleabay search terms, paste this line of text into the search box on the main page.

Then click "Accessories" > "Ties" on the sidebar

(marinella, petronius, battistoni, borrelli, barba, isaia, corneliani, finamore, attolini, drakes, polo, ben silver, paul stuart, ralph lauren purple label, kiton, partenopea, ermenegildo, caruso, canali, zileri, hackett, holliday, nicky, turnbull, rubinacci, charvet, brioni, breuer) striped

Can also substitute "stripes" or "regimental" for "striped." Not sure how to arrange the Boolean stuff to account for those two terms


Left out a big one (Brooks Brothers) because I find their ties to be poor quality

Is it still a faux pas to wear a tie from a military unit that you have no connection to? Or have customs about that loosened?

I don't get a sense of any change in tack regarding the wearing of Regimental/Club/Alumni ties. That said the rise of the 'Help for Heroes' Charity http://shop.helpforheroes.org.uk has gone someway I suppose to a change in perceptions, perhaps. Their three stripe tie/colours represent the three armed forces and is now very recognisable.

Well, I certainly wouldn't wear a tie without a personal association. Firstly, I would be very concerned should I be asked questions that I couldn't answer and have to admit 'erm, no. I just like the colour...'

Secondly I do know ex servicemen who attend annual reunions etc. I do some work at a place where I met a couple of these guys who are ex Grenadier Guards http://www.regimentalshop.com/shop/products/1037-Grenadier-Guards-Regimental-Shop/, one has become a good mate actually and to hear what he went through in the Armed Forces (conflict) beggars belief so for me to wear his regiment's tie would be a mark of considerable disrespect. imho, ymmv

Here's a link http://www.ubushop.co.uk/accessories/ties I'm able to wear the Social Sciences tie, though I don't.

If you look at -

http://www.bensonandclegg.com/shop/index.php?cPath=55_58

http://www.goldings.co.uk/online_shop/ties.php

Sometimes the issue is one of quality, shiny silk or polyester (!) can be found.

So, that all said just rushed a couple of quick pics...

First two are my favourite stripes at the moment, Corneliani and Drakes. inlove.gif

Third is our Club tie, blue one to be worn at the Club the other when away representing the Club. shog[1].gif

The final two are ties I love but never wear, both old and I can't bring myself to throw out.... peepwall[1].gif

Makes sense. Awareness in Britain of the significance of certain striped ties will probably never go away. It's a "thing"

Yeah, I'd never wear a striped tie from a school/organization I'm not part of. The same goes for tartans. It would result in too many awkward situations.

I don't wear my school tie too often, even though the burgundy and navy colours are quite nice. You sometimes see people wearing their school tie and cufflinks at the same time, which is a bit tacky if you ask me.

In the context of conservative business dress, I realize that I tend to draw a distinction between those ties (the vast majority in jrd617’s enviable collection) which have stripes of unequal widths and those, such as the leftmost one in the second photo, where the stripes are all of the same width.

 

Anyone have any thoughts to share on this distinction?

 

Cheers,

 

Ac

 

P.s.:  I’d eliminate criterion (4) in the original post, as it’s surely true for all ties and not specific to stripes.

Love your first tie :)

 

So I guess I should stay away from striped ties when I'm in UK to avoid the potential awkward situations.

The stripes of most American ties go in a different direction, so you'd be perfectly fine. It's not like someone will walk up to you in the streets and ask you about your tie, but it might happen in certain social or professional occasions.

I agree BB ties aren't that amazing. But these ties do seem to be an exception. (They have handrolled edges and are self tipped):







One odd thing I did notice about these models is that the interlining comes down pretty far. They're also 2.75'.

Great thread; will post my collection soon!

^ Don't like any of those BB's, except for the brown

Especially don't like that one with the horizontal stripes. I should add a diagonals rule to my list

I like the yellow as part of an SC combo, but they are a bit narrow
