    Great quality ties in my experience - the 50oz is quite substantial and allows for a great knot. They usually retail at Barney's for $110...

    Is Barneys having a sale? Why were the ties so cheap?

    yeah they've got some shirts on sale, Duchamp ties, Holliday & Brown ties as well on sale -- pretty good -- $49. Slovakia-made RJ shirts on sale, sigh. Barneys is stockling the RJ short sleeve sport shirts, the RJ T-shirts (very 1970s) and some Harrington Jackets.

    Looks like some of the Barneys house brand socks are made by Pantherella.

    RJ socks pushing $50 for over the calf. Demoralizing.

    Holliday & Brown are nice. RJMan, What kind of shirts do they have on sale? They usually have a lot of Lorenzini, Brioni, Zegna, and their private label--anything different this time?

    A little Armani, Etro, a few RJ -- my impression was it's been picked over a decent amount already. I didn't look too hard at it nor did I inspect the shoes... I love the H&B, but damned if I can find their new re-edited line (different from what they did for Prada and much better made). Everard's in DC is 40 PER CENT higher in price, so @()$ that...

    Do what I did and go to Bergdorfs and buy a Marinella tie.

    What is the consensus on Breuer (hope I'm spelling that right)? Saw some in Bergdorf's a while back, they looked nice.

    Breuer makes ties for Facconable, I have several of them and they are pretty nicely made.
