I am new to this forum (I have browsed this siite for months and finally stopped procrastinating and made an account this week). I was wondering if anyone can point me to a solid necktie maker for around $50-60 (still in school with a limited budget). I have a few Brooks Brothers and Ralph Lauren ties, but after a few months they lose their luster (look dull in color) and begin developing pulls. Someone told me to look on e-bay but I feel like those will have the same problems (thats why they are being sold). Also, if anyone knows a link showing the various necktie folds I'd appreciate it. I'm getting sick of the full windsor and think I'm doing it wrong anyway. Thanks.
