Advice on finding a blended/linen tie with this suit?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for a blended or linen tie for a suit. More specifically, I want a tie that is either non-silk or at most 50% silk (can't wear pure silk for religious reasons).

 

I want something that is formal for an evening event. Wool ties often look informal or better for daytime events. Cashmere or wool/silk blends tend to work well.

 

I've looked at department stores and major brands, but I find mostly silk ties.

 

See the pics below of the suit. It is blue, but lighter than navy

 

 

Appreciate any ideas!

What's your budget?

I have the same religious constraint.  I have several blended ties from Drake's.  They are $200, but I think the quality makes them an excellent value.

How formal do they look? I find that wool ties are often thick and non formal looking for evening events.

For one tie?! Sam Hober is probably your best bet. You can also check out H.N. White, E.G. Cappelli, Henry Carter, Exquisite Trimmings, Conrad Wu, No Man Walks Alone, Shibumi, etc. You will definitely find something that meets your needs.

Haha - I put a high number just to see my options. It's really hard to find good ties that meet this criteria. I'll check those out thanks!

Sam Hober should do the trick

 

check the "Atkinsons Irish Poplin", 50% silk 50% merino wool, great drape and looks like a heavy silk, may be a little less shinny

a little less formal, "italian linen / cotton" for summer, cashmere for winter (either blackwarp or striped) . and a nice texture with the Italian linen
