The one I purchased says "Hand Made in Italy" on the label. This leads me to assume it's not Drakes...wouldn't they be made in England?Originally Posted by Connemara
Same here. But I only buy their hand-made ties, and @ $10-12 a pop they can't be beat.Originally Posted by Christofuh
Nice tie Connemara. If it was Drakes, it would be marked handmade in England and there would the letters MD (for Michael Drake) on the small fabric tag (HB = Holliday & Brown).Originally Posted by EL72
Where are you getting them for this, eBay?Originally Posted by Film_Noir_Buff
It's funny that you mention this. First, I dont know if Drakes makes all of Barney's private label ties. More interesting, is that I understand Drakes makes Marinellas ties, or at least one line of them (I dont know all the different marinella programs) and that Drakes has a factory in Italy which is not named "Drakes". I really didnt want to toss a holy tie hand grenade into it but that's what the same above source told me.Originally Posted by Film_Noir_Buff
Would the letters be on the reverse side? I'm unable to see them in the photo of the tag.Originally Posted by Connemara
