My Fist Zegna

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I wore my first zegna tie ever tonight to my Geography class to give my presentation on tehcnology in Europe and Francophone countries and I loved it. The tie felt so nice, looked good, and ties into a perfect know.... Are there any other good tie brands out there??

Yes, you will soon learn that Zegna ties are just for beginners around here (just kidding -- a Zegna tie would probably be the third best tie in my closet). If you are looking on Ebay, I'd say that Talbott Best in Class is a good value and a good tie. If you want pure luxury, go with a seven fold tie. Borrelli's can be found for around $70 on Ebay, with Kitons being too pricey IMO. Hickey Freeman makes a nice tie I think, and can be found cheaply.

I am a big fan of Zegna ties as well. Much more so than other Zegna stuff.

I would find it extremely snobbish for anyone to be quoting that wearing Zegna ties are a beginner thing.

I do believe johnnynorman was being facetious. goblueguy, if you check out the forum search engine, you'll find several long discussions of tie designers, with many pictures from members' personal collections.   We probably shouldn't neglect our very own in-house tie mavens: Carlo Franco FIH Ties

Surely you'll agree that there's a difference between Zegna's "regular" ties and their Nap. C. ties. I have a dozen or so of the latter, and I'd say they stack-up nicely against my Borrelli's et al. JV
