    Because I want someone (with a willingness to spend more than 100 USD on a tie...a boundary I've yet to cross, btw, thanks to sales and B&S) to pull the trigger on a Frui tie:

    Along that line, it sounds like Yellowhook will have a $600 vicuna tie in the works - which is basically the same price as the net total of those 5 ties.

    My pleasure! I would have bought one already but am generally disappointed with the knots that I get from 8 cm ties.

    I'm with you on the width. I can't roll 8cm ties with Formosa lapels...3.3" is even pushing my taste.

    About "Fiori":
    I think they actually stock Fiorio Milano, which is Intermoda's house line. They are upscale both regarding fabric and construction quality to their licensed brand name lines (Moschino, GFF etc.). I don't know B&T's price point, but at their suggested RRP, I consider them to be quite the bargain. Most of their designs are SF-approved, too.

    Can someone briefly explain to me the differences between: Drape Cut, Steed, and Huntsman's house styles? To me they all seem similar and have the elements I like (strong shoulder, waisted, swell/drape chest, slightly flared skirt/quarters), but I am sure there are some differences, but I can't quite articulate.
