I hate all of mine. I am sure someone has one that is much better. Nothing from Sharper Image, please.

I would also like to hear suggestions. I roll up my ties in drawers or use wood coat hangers, but have never found an ideal tie rack.

I picked up a Woodlore tie hanger yesterday, but it has a horizontal configuration holding 20 ties. Works perfect so far. Picked it up at Nordstrom's Rack for $7.97. The one shown above was available for $8.97. It seemed to be a good deal to me.

Isnt the best solution to roll them up and put them in a box or draw? People say that hanging them for too long can strech the silk out, especially if you have alot of ties on the same rack. Anyone else hear this?

The most sensible and stylish way to store ties is to cubbyhole them, rolled and facing forward, not curled up on their side. Ideally what you need is a partitioned drawer with cubbies measuring 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches on the inside. Whether you prefer wide ties or skinny anorexics, the silk needs a bit of room to breathe while resting. You also need to be able to hook out your choice to wear with a finger slipped in from the side. The partitions, sides, front and back of the drawer should be made of hardwood. The choice of species and stain are up to you. So is the protective finish, which should be durable. The bottom of the drawer need not be of the same hardwood (to save money) and can be made of lesser quality wood faced with white laminate on the topside, which makes a nice neutral background against the ties that is easy to clean. The more ties you have, the more drawers you need, each of which should ride on heavy-duty glides from, say, Accuride. Whether the glides are mounted at the sides of the drawers or hidden underneath, it's up to you. By the same token, if you prefer cutouts in the drawerfronts or knobby pulls on solid fronts, it's up to you.

Now, what's the best way to roll a tie? Fold it in half and roll under starting at the back and ending up at the front blade. If freehanding the rollup is difficult to manage, try a 6-inch wide wooden dowel in a thickness you find comfortable.

A final thought. If you have to a collection of silk pocket squares to complement your ties, make a partitioned drawer for them. Most squares measure 17-20 inches/side, so a centre partition should suffice, giving you two big square wells. Don't fold your silks; store them in flat piles. After each wearing, let them hang out for 2 or 3 days by clipping them gently to a hook. And research how to properly press them smooth before returning them to the drawer. The same goes for linen hankies.

About ten years ago, my wife bought me hands-down, the best tie racks I have ever used. I am a bit crazy, and own about 600 ties. This rack can hold about 80 ties comfortably, and when you remove one from any spot on the rack, you don't disturb the others. My problem is that I need to buy more racks, and I can't find this model ANYWHERE. I don't know who makes it. It is similar in concept to the "BT Hanger".
Anyone help me out with this?


Thanks!
