I've got this tie to sell, and I've found it ungoogleable.



It's super nice quality, thick silk, etc. Figured if anyone would know someone out here in SFLand might.

From this, I found the glovemaker's website... The logo is not the same, but their logo would not be terribly conducive for tie use, so the one on the tie may have been a one-off. I'll try contacting their US rep and see if he has any idea if this might be one of theirs.

While we're at it, anyone know what the deal with "Hill & Drake" is? I've got a tie from the same lot that's tagged with this name, and about the only result you'll get on google for it is someone on SF a couple years ago asking if Charles Hill and Drake's had collaborated at some point. The tie's from Louis Boston and it's incredible:

it is the same logo as my last pair of gloves
they probably outsourced the manufacturing since they only make gloves inhouse

Awesome, the SF knowledge cloud kills it. Thanks for getting to the bottom of this. Whoever did the manufacturing is no slouch, either.
