    Because I am inclined toward bold graphics and colors, I seem to gravitate toward Robert Talbott.

    Next on my to purchase list:
    Charvet
    Hermes

    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

    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.
