This is out of control

Why is the bidding this high? No way this retails for $300.

Because "the ladies will spot the quality streets away", obviously. It is a nice tie, perhaps some people just have no perspective on quality/price/value.

It looks like a wellmade tie. But I don't find the colour particularly interesting.

I guess a few people have decided that they absolutely need this for a holiday gift. More disturbing is the fact that there is agressive bidding on an item that is being sold by 1) an overseas seller with 2) rather low feedback (8) and 3) who has only been on Ebay for six weeks....

Goodness, I am rubbing my eyes. I really must find some Kiton ties and start selling them on eBay. I could start the bidding at the price I paid for them and still sell them.

i think kiton silks are 215 now, but i did get a few pure cashmere 7-folds w/ the tags for 300 but not silk

Btw, Australian $300 is approximately USD $229 as of today.  I imagine that at the beginning of the season, when the price tag was made, that the dollar was stronger, and Australian $300 would be about US $215.   Perhaps the seller "intentionally" unintentionally left off that little piece of information about the currency.

Sold a linen one a couple of weeks ago for $167.50.. They are in demand apparently...

Things are noticably more expensive in Australia. Brioni ties retail for $300; well they did 3 years ago.
