Fake Robert Talbott Seven-Fold Ties

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Anyone ever run across these? I found two at the thrift shop today. Clearly fake. No silk backing, cheap silk, poorly screened logos. Terrible. At .75 a piece I grabbed them for my fiance to use at work, as she's a waitress and stuff gets spilled on them anyway. I know there's fake Armani, Dolce, Gucci, etc but I didn't think anyone would make a fake Talbott tie....

I was gonna start a new topic, but then I found this. So, I recently got a talbott seven fold off the bay for real cheap, it looked like nobody wanted it so I took a chance knowing it could fake. Now I don't have much experience with these kind of ties, but I did notice that all Kiton 7 folds are lined, so that the front and back at the ends of the tie look the same (and extremely thick). I was also told that theres no such thing as an unlined seven fold, and after seeing this topic it really made me wonder if what I thought was a steal was actually a waste of money. So if theres anyone out there with some expertise in this stuff, is this robert talbott seven fold authentic or not? If it is, someone sure put in alot of effort.

It's genuine. The construction details are the same on the one I have. I'm not saying it's not ugly, but it's genuine.

That's the real deal, Talbott 7folds have the backing of the silk on the tips of tie. Very nice tie!

Robert Talbott 7-folds are unlined. So both the OP's and Heliox's ties are the real deals.

To maintain exclusiveness, RT only makes 40 ties in any given 7-fold design. So Heli0x's tie is number 23 out of a lot of 40.

Yeah, those are the real deal.
Good find.

Thanks guys, I was getting all worried after a SA told me unlined 7folds dont exists, who then proceeded to diss talbott as a nordstrom house brand
And if anyones interested, there quite a few of them floating around ebay with starting bids around 10, and a bunch under 50, nice patterns too, but usually between 3.75-4, which is too wide for me

RT ties barely have any body and tend to come in patterns that could make a Jamaican pimp gag. They also do ties in limited runs so as to kick up the desirability aspect by a few notches. That's what the numbers on the flip side signify. Nordie sells those in dedicated boxes called "coffins".

Double-checking an eBay seller. Does this look like a real RT7 to people? Numbering ("5/2012") seems suspect...
