What is considered the proper way to mail a necktie? The pre-owned Kilgour tie I just received from the UK was mailed to Ohio in a wrapping labeled as made for ties, but it was folded several times and came with the expected creases. I tried to iron these out - very carefully, as I know ironing any silk tie can be problematic - and there is still some minor creasing. Are ties supposed to be sent only rolled up? That doesn't seem so feasible. They are typically folded in stores when on display, though sometimes, I know, they are rolled.
