    the big selloff happened yesterday (I missed out) but there's still some stuff left.

    Not at are branded drakes, but others have postulated that these are indeed drakes ties (or at least the silks/wool/linen/cashmere that drakes uses)

    I am selling a bunch of high end ties, and dont want to interfere with the three other big tie sellers on the board (gyasi, dave, edmorel), but I wanted to share this with everyone.

    Some nice woolen paisleys and madders left. Other whimsical designs remain too.

    Seems like the worst that was missed was a purple cashmere tie for 45.50 + $10 shipping.

    I think they are 8 cm but I can confirm tomorrow when I get the package. Stock is definitely dwindling though.

    could someone link some of the "nicer" ties? or are they all the same quality?

    I'm still learning this tie business. Wouldn't mind picking up a couple though.

    The ones that are made in England are the nicer ones, for the most part.

    Ugly ties on sale are still ugly.

    I'm a big Drake's fan but the ties they make for Ben Silver by necessity conform to the Ben Silver house style of ugliness.

    This Seaward & Stearn tie in wool is a STEAL at $42.00 -- ( I bought the same one last week at Wm. Fox & Co. for $50 and can vouch for the nice weight and fine hand.)

    Width is 3-3/8 in. (Between 8-9 cm, I believe.)
