Of what I own:

Attolini- is my favorite as the silk of all of them are quite exceptional.

Borrelli-their 7 folds ties are one of the easiest and best dimples I've found

Ricci-despite their poor taste in other garments, Ricci's ties are quite nice

Kiton-suprised as I'm not very impressed, the materials are not of Attolini's quality

Dormeuil-nice grenadines

Cappelli, Rubinacci, Drakes, Loro Piana, Marinella, Matuozzo.

Edit: Kitons prints are great but their wovens are not so good IMO.

I'm surprised no one has mention Arney's ties. Ben Silver, out of Charleston, carries them. They are very nice ties.

Lately, I've become quite fond of Zegna ties. Don't know if they're objectively that great, but I like them.
