Drakes is very good.
Me only Kiton is bad and dead and hard to knot well.
Canali & Duchamp.
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
I used to like Isaia and Kiton previously.
After seeing in hand Capelli and Panta, those two became my favourite ones.
Charvet and Isaia.
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.
Etro, Paul Smith or Duchamp for bow ties
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!
Happy 2,000th ter. (though half of your posts read '.....')
Nothing even comes close.
emporio armani has best ties, so classy
not really armani ties dont have logos unlike Louis Vuitton or Hermes ties
so not really classy
I do own a very well constructed Dior tie. I've looked into some of their ties and they are nicely made which lends to great knots. I have the red one. http://www.thevelveteenrabbitantique...600&page=popup
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.
