    looks legit to me too. It's probably a made in england version of Paul Smith ties. These were great quality. Now they are made in italy, and they don't quite feel the same. A few more $$ in the pocket for the company I guess ...
    This is a recent trend in Paul Smith (maybe 3 years old now) to lower the quality of the stuff they sell.
    My advice : don't buy anything from paul smith anymore, unless it's the "mainline".

    Is anything Paul Smith made in England anymore, besides the Corgi socks? The dress shirts and ties appear to be made in Italy, the sportswear in India or China, the prices only go higher...
