Nobody knows anything about Liberty of London ties made in the U.S? I wonder when and what it says about the quality. I'm going by the labels on the ties, of course (one silk, one cotton) and I have no qualms about their being "authentic L of L's.

What are you referring to as "thrift shops?" The tie does look/feel as good and appear as well made as other Liberty ties I've seen, and I'm also certain I saw silk ties in their London flagship store, in case anyone is thinking they only make cotton ties.

Ah, I see. I prefer their Arts and Crafts stuff from Ye olden days. Not for clothes though.

Does Liberty sell actual antiques or all "new to look old?" I love the true Arts and Crafts furnishings, architecture, etc. but they translate well to patterns for new items - ties, furniture, etc. Extremely well!

Liberty sells actual antique patterns, in new-made textiles and stuff. They go through their back catalogue and re-release a number of them every season.

what is your point. It is a tie!
seven fold,hand made , machine liba make. what is the difference. how many times will you wear the tie?
do you like it? do you think you paid a fair price? are you happy with your purchase?

Liberty does interesting prints. I am not a huge fanof cotton ties as the creases do not always come out.

"It's a tie".... Hee hee; ha ha, ho ho. Many of us have been spending lots and lots of hours on this forum with thousands and thousands of posts without worrying too much about the importance of such items as ties.... Look Sonny, ties are important. I mean REALLY important to those of us in the know! Get with it, man....

I've been curious about US-made ties in general. A lot of brooks brothers ties seem to be made in the States. Are there serious large scale tie makers remaining?
