Why? They are crap, even if you didn't own a single tie I still wouldn't buy them. If you go thrifting once or twice a week within a few months you could fill a drawer with good to great quality ties. For instance you found a Ben Silver tie, good brand, good quality stick it in your drawer and go again. Maybe you find a Brooks Brother tie, stick it in your drawer and go again. But Polyester is ugly, has no resale value and wouldn't be worn by any member of a forum entitled "Style Forum". Gucci doesn't get a lot of love here either, nor on eBay where you can see many of their ties selling for under $5 with free shipping. So I recommend you take all of those ties back except the Ben Silver, the Gucci if you want it for personal use, and that Peek-a-Boo tie.

Mental note to self, no Polyester ties...
Don't know why I put the Brooks Brothers tie as Poly, but it is silk as well.
As I said, they were on sale, so I think 4 silk ties for $5 is pretty good... And we could say the polyester ones were free junk thrown in I suppose.
Thanks for the harsh honesty by the way, much more helpful than a gif of Evil Abed playing baseball
