Just bought a couple ties this weekend in Atlanta. Â They're both great, but I was surprised to see the pricetags...sheesh.. I'm going to stick to ebay as much as possible-- I expect to pay $135 per tie when I splurge in a store, but no more than that (unless it was a seven fold, which I don't yet own). Â Not the case.. One of them was considerably more; how high will these damned things get??? I HIGHLY recommend the Bizzocchi ties; great construction and knots perfectly. Â The Brioni looks nice, but MAN are they getting expensive. PS salesperson recommended the one with light blue squares and brown pattern to pair with my french blue shirt and grey flannel suit (which contains a french blue pinstripe). Â Strange, but it works like a charm.
