    Similar but not identical? Same width? Pics?



    Here's what's left from that series. I think the light navy might be interesting.


    That's a shame. I wanted to order the light grey flannel one.

    Did anyone else get his with a customs import bill from DHL a few weeks after receiving delivery of ties from Drake's?

    I put on one of my 2 Drakes ties today and then took it off because I felt it was too beautiful to wear and that I would surely ruin it. True story.

    If you're in NYC, Century 21 has a bunch of Drakes scarves from $50-$70...seems like a good deal given the prices on Drakes website.

    I have the tie on the left and the colors in person are not like the Drake's photo. I will see if I can take a pic when I am home tonight. IMHO - their stock photo seems to have smoothed the colors so they are even and maybe matte, when in reality, the blue has a slight metallic gray tone in it and reflects light depending on the angle you view it. This photo makes it look very 1-dimensional.

    On a related note the wife picked me up a dark purple grenadine and one of the tartan ties by Drake's for Ben Silver this weekend when she was at her company's conference.

    Interested in buying some Drakes scarves. Wool, PoW, reversible stripes/spots, for under 100 bucks. Any suggestions online? Asos.com has a few, but not quite interesting.

    There are a few on this site based out of Brooklyn.

    I like the two that are in your price range on p2.

    Thanks. No international shipping I'm afraid. Would prefer less expensive and sites preferably in UK. I'll look on ebay.

    I'd imagine Ebay would be your best bet.

    I've got nothing to add about drakes (which is one of the last great men's accessory makers still left) - that dog is fkn awesome.

    The ties are beautiful but they are too narrow for me.
    But something that is rarely mentioned is their shirts,
    which I love. I have a few purchased at Barneys LA
    going on 10 years ago. I'll have to re-check out the current
    selection at Barney's. In recent years the local selection
    has fallen flat.
