FS: Navy Pin Head Dot tie by Benson & Clegg - Make in England

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Up for sale is a brand new with tags Navy Pin Head Dot tie from Benson and Clegg. The tie is made in England and is very nice. The dots are woven into the tie, not printed. If you look very closely at the tie, there is a faint grid pattern connecting the dots, but it is not noticeable from 2 or 3 feet away. B&C ties are not sold in the U.S., but there is a persistent rumor that they make ties for Ben Silver. In any case, this is a great tie, and would be perfect for interviews, serious business meetings or those who prefer a minimalist, classic style. The only reason I am selling the tie is because it is a little wider than I prefer. The tie is 3.75" x 56". Please note that I make no profit off this transaction. I am selling the tie for exactly what I paid (which includes my international shipping costs - ordering from the UK isn't cheap) plus a couple extra bucks for shipping. The price is $46, which includes first class postage in the CONTINENTAL USA with delivery confirmation. I can also do Priority mail with insurance, but that will cost extra. Sorry, I will not sell to anyone outside the continental USA. Payment must be made by Paypal from a confirmed address. Sorry, I cannot accept any other type of payment.

Good luck with your sale!

I noticed you said you are selling the tie because you feel it is too wide. I personally don't like wide ties, so I get otherwise good ties narrowed. A good alterations tailor can narrow neckties. If you can't find one local, another option is Tiecrafters (tiecrafters.com) in New York. They have altered many ties for me, and they charge about $17 to do it.

Yes, I've heard of Tiecrafters. If no one wants to buy the tie, I may have to send it to them eventually. For now, I would rather sell the tie. The tie isn't THAT wide. 3.75" is pretty standard for many British and Italian ties. I have access to a great bespoke tailor who could probably do the job, but my guess is sending it to Tiecrafters would be less costly.

Last call for the tie. If no one wants to buy it in one week I'm going to keep it.
