I love cashmere and my collection has been steadily growing.

14 here along with my 4 favorite RL vintage Madders, my Drakes for Luxeswap and my 3 Cremieux grenadines.
Will be 15 in a few days, I just won a light blue LP cashmere for Net jets on its way as we speak.

So far for me, that would be:

 

Italo Ferreti

RT BOC or Estate (I actually don't really like most of the 7 folds I've come across from RT)

PRL 

Paul Frederick

Charles Tyrwhitt

I like the RT Chelsea ties I've found and there are untold italian light prints out there that I've collected.  I also enjoy the vibrancy of the Lanvin and Faberge prints, though I've never kept any of them.

Kept tons of Ferragamos, but that's because I have a young daughter that likes seeing me in a hedgehog (or similar) tie.

I like cashmere just for the... different-ness of it.  Like gettin' some tie strange, as opposed to Thai strange, which may be fatal.

 

The quick hits that keep me addicted:

 

 

Wasn't going to pass up at $3.99.  Nothing in that store was 3.99, don't know what was going on there, probably swooped in on a sweetheart deal before the pricers friend could come by.

Isokinetics ball chair, plus someone in the office has been wanting one.

I like the contrast in texture as well as the way the light plays off of them as opposed to the fine silks.

I don't have the wide variety of experience with the top tier brands, but my favorite ties are a Massimo Bizzochi, a cashmere blend from Zegna, a linen Alexander Olch, and an alpaca blend tie from Etro.

I'm still kicking myself for auctioning some Zegna Couture ties...I find they are usually some nice blends with some good substance to them.

Can anyone decipher this scribble? I cant even make out the first letter. I usually stay away from watercolors but these look legit.

If you like Zegna ties and want some substance (assuming this means you want thickness and heft) I'd actually recommend their newer 80/20 Silk/Cotton blends. They're thick, plenty of heft, big knot, and dimple nicely as well. Just fyi.. And you can tell if they are this blend because the keepers for them actually have a gold or silver metal bar with Ermenegildo Zegna engraved in it, they may be limited runs not sure.

I sold a Zegna tie that had the metal bar on the keeper but it was 100% silk and not a blend

I've found some outstanding shoes that were stamped "Frank Brothers" I don't think I ever determined the maker.  One here is saying J&M: http://www.classicshoesformen.com/shoes/johnston-murphy-frank-bros-spade-sole-full-brogue-circa-1950-43-435d
