    My wife, who was shopping at Costco, texted me:

    "Just bought you a couple of nice ties at Costco."

    You can probably imagine what I was thinking. I was thinking that I'm glad that Costco has such an easy returns policy because there's absolutely no way in the world that I'm going to like a tie from Costco.

    Turns out, they're pretty nice. Very nice Italian fabric, and made in Italy. They look very similar to Robert Talbot (regular, not seven fold) and I wouldn't be surprised at all if they came from the same shops as the Talbot ties.

    Will post pictures after Christmas. (wife already wrapped them and put them under the tree.)


    forgot this:

    They are $18

    They've had them for over a year now. Costco has this weird "Made in Italy" obsession lately where they feature unknown brands (like Enzo Mantovani) or Kirkland Signature products made there. At my local Costco right now they have a bunch of cashmere stuff like this:

    Very interesting. Thanks for the links.

    I haven't seen them up in Canada but I'll keep an eye out.
