I've added numerous NWT Talbott 7-fold ties to my collection over the past year by doing occasional Ebay searches. Â Retail for these ties is about $195, but I've paid on average $100 by the above method. Â While the patterns of these ties are a bit much for some, they are IMO the standard of excellence in 7-fold ties. Â This example is for a previously owned tie, but it will give you an example. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....me=WDVW
Unless label recognition is very important to you...and I can't imagine why is would be...don't overlook Carlo Franco ties. Â While I've purchased only a few, they are among my favorites. Â They are of quality silk, well constructed, and marvelously attractive. Â And Chuck's prices are simply unbeatable.
