    I was wondering of the quality on these ties... I picked up a few at a sale at Saks and was thinking about getting a few more... they were about 70 dollars i think...

    They seem like pretty well made ties

    I know that Drake's has done at least some manufacturing for Burberry. The only caveat with their ties is one would want to avoid the Burberry novacheck.

    I'll have to have a second look at those ties at the outlets again.

    I exchanged a couple of emails with a woman at Drake's a few months back, and she mentioned that they had done  work for Burberry. I don't know how extensive that relationship is/was.

    I own one Burberry tie. I like the pattern, but the construction isn't on par with my 50 oz. Drakes from STP or my Drakes grenadines bought at SOF.

    Burberry ties aren't too bad. I don't think they're as nice as brands like Brioni, Stefano Ricci, and/or Faberge. But for $70, I'd say you did okay. I certainly would never pay full retail for a Burberry tie.

    C21 in NYC has a bunch for $39 or so. They seemed nice for the price...

    I have just one that I purchased from burberry on mich ave, I like the way they have them laid out upstairs on the table, they wrap them so nice you hate to open them.
