    So everyone knows Finamore makes great shirts. I just bought a tie from shopthefinest for 100$. I did it because I liked the pattern/color. The tie is just a simple three fold. Does anyone have experience with the quality of these ties?

    How do they compare to other styleforum favorites like Drake's and such?

    Thanks. :foo:

    Drake's crunchy knits are great, but for a different take I like this:

    Know anything about the ones that are not knit? What's your take on color/pattern above by the way? I really dig it. :D

    Sorry, I don't know anything about the quality of their ties - I'm guessing they don't make them themselves. As for your particular tie I'm probably the wrong one to ask as I prefer solids and when lightly patterned pretty much only blue based...

    Why is it that you prefer blue based ties? Is blue just a favorite color of yours or do you find it to be a more universal color that works with most things? I too like blue, but I also have quite a few of Hober's Macclesfields that are lightly patterned but in many different colors.

    Just personal preference I guess. But I hardly ever wear ties so I don't feel a need a lot of diversity and have no problem reaching for the same ones at the rare times that I do wear one...
