    Hickey Freeman, Piattelli, Barbera, Nicky, Charvet, Kiton and Bottega Veneta stand out to me as very good quality ties. I would jump on the last 6, since they're very hard to find at a discount. Krizia & Lacroix should be good too. I don't know about the other brands.

    However, if these ties are all at pretty good prices, and you like a particular tie, just get it w/o regard to the brand. I would imagine that all of the brands you mentioned are at least of good-decent quality, and none are mediocre.

    Finally the Barney's private-label is very good quality and often a much better deal than buying one of the designers. Most of their stuff is made in the same factories as the more expensive designer stuff. I've never owned a Barneys tie, but would surprised if the quality of their ties wasn't good.

    Hello from 2011.

    Anyone know where Valentino ties fit on the quality ladder? Syms sells them for $60 a piece.

    There OK, forgot who makes them but they make for other mid tier brands too. If you like the ties, $60 is reasonable but you can find them in sale at Saks Off Fifth and I think Century21 sells them fit 40-50. There is better stuff out there, but it's not like you're buying garbage either.

    I thought something was fishy. Nowadays people just say Drakes and Sam Hober, and little else. I was wondering how I got through a full page of responses without seeing those names. [​IMG]

    Also, Hermes ties are awesome. Rarely discussed on this board, but they make incredibly nice knots.
