The regular summer sale is now on at N & L. There are some good deals to be had--as just one example: Crockett & Jones shoes made to regular grade ("Benchgrade" standards on at 185 GBP or 153 ex VAT, so roughly $285. My question, however, has to do with their ties. Does anyone know who makes these for N & L? they have some very nice-looking grenadines in 5 or 6 colors, and all these silk ties are on sale for 30 GBP or 3 for 84 GBP, which I presume after removal of VAT would go for about $46 for one and $128 for 3. RJman, you probably know the origins of these ties; where are you?
