    Yeah, I haven't damaged a single tie from hanging them. Another benefit is that wrinkles will disappear easier due to gravity. Some unlined ties need a day or two for the wrinkles to disappear. Rolling them wouldn't provide that benefit.

    Correct.

    I'm not saying one method is better than the other, just my personal preference.

    If you hang your ties, they will sag like old lady's boobs.

    Same here. I love it. I find it makes my ties much more accessible and easy to sort through.

    I have both rolled and hung my ties, both work just as fine imho. Right now I don't really have any good way of hanging my ties, so they're all rolled up. Rolling actually takes the wrinkles out of most my ties, don't ask me how.

    So if I roll my ties, I won't destroy them? It's easier for me to be able to see them that way given space constraints.

    I didn't REALLY care earlier because I thrifted most of them, but I just bought a few pretty nice ties and I want to take care of them.

    I always hang them afterwards to help get the wrinkles out and restore the tie to its original form...especially in the case of some very delicate light 7-fold ties.

    Roll immediately after wear, then hang a day or two later. Or, as right now, half my ties are hanging, and the other half are rolled and sitting on a table waiting to be hung again. Knits always rolled.

    So what I'm hearing is that I won't ruin these ties if I leave them gently rolled...?

    Kop at fiddy five for all four?

    Brown, cream, light blue, black.

    I've seen a few people on here wear these, but I'm not quite sure how 'worth it' this would be. I guess it would be nice for more casual 'formal' fits? Or for wearing a tie under a sweater or such?

    RTC, kop. For me the 'yellow' one would get less necktime...
