I just received mine today. I got 2...the blue with dots and purple/green striped. They look to be pretty good in quality. I think I will order a couple more.

I ordered two shirts, but didn't pull the trigger on the ties. I'm looking for some knit ties, what are some good ones? I'm willing to spend up to $100/tie, but prefer the $30-50 range.

These ones are a bargain at $23 I think.

I picked up a couple ralph lauren ones on ebay for under $20, NWT.

I think Kilgour and Drakes has very nice ones for around $100 or so. I recall seeing a Kilgour being listed for sale on this forum a couple weeks back.

I ordered one of each. For $23 a piece (shipped), they seem like a good deal.

The dotted ones are more like traditional silk knit ties - kind of a waffle knit. As others have mentioned, the quality isn't fantastic, but seems fine for the price. I find the difference in quality for silk knits to be of less importance than for other ties - for me its more about color/patern. These ties measure 2 3/8" at the widest point (about 2 1/4" at the tip - they come in a bit, you can see what I mean on the site) and they're 58" long. It would be nice if the dots extended to the knot, but its not a deal breaker for me (though now that it's been mentioned here it will probably slowly drive me insane )

The striped ones are a more delicate, thinner, tighter knit. They are a just a bit skinnier at 2 1/4" at the widest point and a bit longer at 59 1/2".

None of the ties have keeps on the back, and they all have somewhat obtrusive tags that will probably have to be removed. Overall I'm pleased (especially with the price), and I'm hoping these will satisfy my knit tie needs for a while. Thanks again to nerdykarim.

Just a heads up, if anybody is looking for the purple w/ pink dots or blue w/ white dots knit ties I'll be selling the ones I received from Boden at cost (46$ shipped for both). I ended up getting some knits that are wider. edit: both are sold.
post #41 of 52
Again, do we have a length on these? Thanks
post #42 of 52
Length is 58" and width is 2.5" at the widest for the knit ties with dots.
