Forums like this have made me wary of LV, but I finally decided to check out the Louis Vuitton boutique in the local Holt Renfrew a few days ago, and was quite impressed by their ties. The quality of those ties has to be amongst the best I've ever encountered. The silk is quite substantial and the interlining is quite resilient. I ended up buying one of their celeste ties after debating it for a day or two. It reminds me of a Charles Alexander tie that I wanted, but got sold out when everyone else here dog-piled on him for the exact same tie and bought him out. Anyone else here have experience with LV ties?
