I have found a place that still lists one, but it's discontinued (apparently) at T.M. Lewin (ID 10873). http://www.letsbuyit.co.uk/product/2...spot-tie-10873 Why they would quit making such a basic pattern is beyond me, but I can't find one anywhere else except this one at Austin Reed, but they only ship within the UK. Anyone know another source or want to sell a used T.M. Lewin one in decent condition? Thanks gents!

If it's any consolation, the spots are too large on this tie.

Check brooks brothers UK or ralph lauren. They both typically carry navy/white dot ties.

I think I've seen the tie you want at J. Press, Cambridge, Mass.

Thanks for the input, I actually like the large spots; I like to try to invoke elements of historic looks.

I really like that Drakes navy spot tie. Whilst I already have a navy spot I now have the urge to get a second

Thanks to adagio, I have one on the way. I also agree the drake's makes a second worthwhile.

I received the tie, and unfortunately the "white" spots are just as silver/gray as the stripes of my other T.M. Lewin, I should have expected this. I don't know how they can get away with calling it white.

Needless to say it's a nice tie, but it's a bit modern for the use I was hoping for it. Looks like I need to come into about £85.00...
