    I picked up a couple of ties at a newly discovered consignment store today, a paisley Etro and a tie by an unknown-to-me label. It's a wool-silk blend, self tipped and self keeper (sewn properly into the seam), made in Italy. The label reads "N H 1888" with the 1888 superimposed on the "N H". Anyone know what brand it is?

    I believe that's Nick Hilton, which Gary Drinkwater sells at his shop and made mention of in a recent post in Buying & Selling: "Southwick and Nick Hilton are our two clothing collections. Southwick is an American company who led the industry in the eighties and is experiencing a renaissance so to speak with a new designer John Kalell who I had the pleasure of working with at Louis. Nick Hilton, whose father is Norman Hilton, another great American designer, has been creating clothing since the late eighties and manufactures his collections in Italy. I recently told Nick not to change a thing in his garments for he has arrived. Soft, luxurious with fabric to die for."

    JL, bingo. Note the logo at the bottom of the page. That's it. He must be using the same logo to reference Nick Hilton and Norman Hilton. Very well made tie, too. Worth every bit of the $4 I paid for it... [​IMG]
