I just picked up a tie from their Philadelphia store. They have quite a selection, and most ties are only $49. They also have pocket squares, scarves and ascots with what looks like hand rolled edges for $25. Unfortunately, no white pique bowties. They take some sorting through, like any place, but I found a few ties that I liked. The quality seems good too. There was a good amount of ties on sale for $24 there, but I limited myself to buying only the one that I needed. I'm pretty sure all the ties are 3 fold. There are some knits and wool ties and they seemed nice.

Anyone else own some ties from this store?

Yes. You get what you pay for - not great designs, not great quality. I like their wool ties best.

I do and like them. The seasonal collections (wool, linen etc.) are nice.

I like them. The quality is good for the price point. I bought three from the same store.

Agreed. The tie I bought is worth what I paid and the wool ties I saw looked really nice.

I have one and it holds its own against much more expensive ties of mine.

+1, while the tie is very plain, the quality is great for the price.

i bought a few shirts from their store in Venice, Italy when i was there a few years back. 2 are still in my rotation and the other i bought in the wrong side


it'll go up in the classifieds shortly


The shirts i picked up held up well and are certainly better quality that a lot of generic OTR stuff. I could have taken better care of them though.

I find that the two I own wrinkle pretty severely. I think Brooks Brothers ties on sale are a better value among widely-available tie retailers.

I got a dark blue 7-fold and a dark green grenadine tie from them - I really like them.

Though the dark blue one got a risotto stain on it...
