    As long as a tie is not polyester, satin, shiny, or damaged, I don't care who the maker is. I tend to scoop up ties that I like and fold them neatly into my overflowing collection [​IMG]

    I used to like Isaia and Kiton previously.

    After seeing in hand Capelli and Panta, those two became my favourite ones. [​IMG]

    I'm of the school of thought that once you get decent brands, you shouldn't care too much. There are quite a few brands that, if you like the tie, you shouldn't feel bad at all about getting it.

    Personally, there's plenty of brands I have at least one tie from that I like, including most of those mentioned in this thread. I do have somewhat more Charvet and Hermes than anything else, but that's more a function of pattern preference.

    Notwithstanding the above, I also wish to note that the Attolini pink cashmere is superlative.

    I don't have a favorite. I buy ties that I like....regardless of brand. I never try to match to a shirt. If it's something I like, I scoop it up!

    I buy my ties like I buy my cashmere: If it's a trusted brand, and it looks and feels nice to me, I'll buy it.

    I've never really cared to learn all that much about tie construction, so I usually just buy trusted brands like Hermes, Charvet, RLPL, Drakes etc.

    My favourite are probably my Sam Hobers. Very affordable and I love being able to pick my patterns and widths.

    The only high end brand ties I've tried that I'm not really a fan of are Zegnas. I find they tend to be a little light and flimsy, while I prefer a heftier tie.
