Kent Wang knit ties, six-fold ties, cashmere ties, made in USA

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
We are proud to announce our collection of lined six-fold ties and cashmere ties handmade in the United States. Our last batch of ties was made in Italy, but we are pleased to move production to America -- with the exception of the knit ties. Kindly take a gander: Knit ties Our knit ties are made in Italy and I feel they are among the best knit ties in the world. They are made of very thick yarn, which makes the knit texture more apparent and produces a great crunchy sound when pulled. In the above photo, compare the Nick Hilton tie (left) to ours. The difference in the size of the yarn is obvious, and our tie even stands off the ground more. All knit ties are $75 and 2.5" wide. Medium blue Navy Brown Pink All knit ties are $75 and 2.5" wide. Six-fold ties All six-fold ties are $85 Houndstooth. The ultimate wedding tie. 3.5". Blue basket. 3.5". Cornflower blue with white pindot. 3.5". Navy with blue and white stripes. 3.5" Sky blue with white stripes. 3.25". SOLD OUT. Red with blue stripes. 3.25". Raspberry with navy stripes. 3.25". Navy with red and white stripes. For aspiring presidential candidates. 3.25". Green with blue stripes. 3.25". Navy with gold dots. 3.25". Blue with green dots. 3.25". Navy with blue flowers. 3.25". Glen plaid with red overcheck. 3.25". Grenadines Grenadine is an open weave that has an interesting texture, as seen in the close-up above. Navy grenadine paisley. 3.25". Navy grenadine with red and white stripes. 3.5". Navy grenadine paisley. 3.5". Only 1 available. Red grenadine paisley. 3.5". Only 1 available. All six-fold ties are $85. 100% silk, 100% wool interlining. Six-fold vs seven-fold

A true sevenfold tends to crumple at the tip, wrinkles like hell in the knot area, and lacks the weight to drape well.

Wool ties $85. 100% wool. Three-fold, as a six-fold wool would be impossibly thick. Cashmere ties All cashmere ties are $95 Olive herringbone. 3.25". Brown herringbone. 3.25". All cashmere ties are $95. 100% cashmere. Three-fold, as a six-fold cashmere would be impossibly thick. Features All ties are: 57" long, 3.25" or 3.5" wide, as noted Limited run of 10 ties per design, some even less Keeper loop and tipping in the same fabric as the front of the tie. Bar tack stitch (the small navy horizontal stitch) sewn by hand to reinforce the connecting point. Made in Italy ties There are still some of the last batch of made in Italy ties available. They are discounted to $85 each, same as these American ties. Ordering Free shipping in the US. International $5 shipped standard air mail. Please place your order on my website form. Any questions email sales@kentwang.com; please do not PM.

Nice. I'm going to sit this round out, but I hope you'll keep them coming for the sake of the momentarily impecunious.

Any chances of making solid but fuzzy cashmere ties?

Thank you all for the kind words, especially from my colleague, Mr. Alexander.

These are quite fuzzy as it is. But if you mean completely solid instead of herringbone, probably not, I rather like the texture of the herringbone, and it appears solid from a distance anyway.

Gorgeous ties! Wish I wasn't such a tightass when it comes to ties...

Great job kent. Glad to see your business is expanding.

But you do realize that "penultimate" means next to last? I don't know if a glen plaid tie would be the next to last choice for a wedding tie (next to a bright pink tie with pics of palin maybe?), but just thought I'd point that out.

FWIW, I will be wearing a Kent Wang pocket square and a RLPL glen plaid tie to my wedding this Saturday. Too bad these weren't available sooner -- I could have been all Wang.

But the Wangs are only 3.25" wide. I prefer mine at least 3.5" wide, if not 3.75".

Nice SAT word!

Between these ties and your wonderful selection of cufflinks, I fear my whole paycheck might go to you this month, Kent. (Btw, are there any more of those pink grenadines left?)
