I ran across this probably ca. 1980s RL Polo wool tie with fringed ends (I'm a sucker for the fringed ends), then found the deer tie for my father (he'll appreciate the motif). My father doesn't really own any Important Neckwear.
Not bad, but nothing to throw a parade over. Then I came across the tie on the left below, and must say I was pretty pleased. Then I saw the tie on the right, and thought "that's some nice silk", grabbed it and about fell over. I'm proud to be a member of the 2004 Chairman's Club.
Who knows where such a Marinella came from.
Amusingly, the RL Polo was the most expensive at $3.88.
