Anyone care to either talk me in or out of this tie? There's an ongoing 20 % sale on it, so now would be the time. I like the tie as it offers something different from my current green based ties. Yet, I'm not sure why I'm hesitant. Might be that the size of the motifs are to large making it look busy? Dunno.




Do you know what the "regular" length is for a Juniors tie?

What is a "Juniors" tie?

The green tie I inquired about was from the shop in question.

Wore one of your grenadine ties the other day (you produce the best value for grenadine ties hands down) and was reminded I hadn't visited your site in a long time. You've been adding many interesting Macclesfield ties. Will definitely place an order shortly. Keep up the good work!

For the moment I’ve been pairing these two with my black suit. I’ll definitely have to add a silver grenadine to the list. Also want a houndstooth...

Very nice looking! Can't go wrong with a grenadine. Houndstooth (which I don't have any of) looks like they're beautiful as well!

Hello, all. I was wondering how the gents on the forum find ties by The Dark Knot and Brooks Brothers? With BB, I know there are many different lines plus the new vs vintage distinction. Are there any specific types of BB ties that anyone would recommend?

Brooks Brothers has classic designs for reppe stripes.

Not sure about their current silk and construction quality...

Wanted to try and make my own necktie. Where can I find a similar silk fabric as the style for ties 3 & 4?

Anyone with experience with Francesco Marino ties? Considering placing and order for this tie https://www.francescomarinonapoli.it/?g=OFFERTE/Cravatte/Printed-Silk/ANTIQUE-GREED-GREY/LIGHT-BROWN-CLASSIC-FLOWER-DIAMOND
Took a plunge at it and I'm glad I did. The tie is great and the craftsmanship likewise. The colour is fairly muted, so it'll be an excellent addition to the FW wardrobe. Looking to pair it with brown jackets primarily but can also see it work equally as good with navy.
