Are you serious? Why don't you just sew the "tag thing" back on?

The tag thingy must be replaced with a Purple / Purplish Label.

Send it to Conne as a gift so he can sell it for profit.

Don't worry, you only lose a few bucks in resale value without the "Kenneth Cole REACTION" tag intact

Hey all, wow, so it is a brooks tie, and honestly I don't remember how much it cost...but that little tag thing on the back comes in handy, and I am not that good with a needle...didn't know if there was any kind of typical course of action with this type of a deal, I have read that many here throw ties out when they spill something on them instead of having them cleaned so figured it might be the same for something like this?

<Decision-making routine>

If it was fixed, would I wear the tie?

→If no: Then throw out.

→If yes: Will it cost more to replace with a similar tie to have repaired?

→→If yes: Then have it fixed.

→→If no: Then throw out.
