    I wish I had taken a better picture before I sold this tie. It was really really nice. [​IMG] Here is another FIG tie. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I have that *exact* same tie. It's a fabulous piece of work. I generally like DFigs a lot - well made ties from good quality silk.

    I love the H&B but I never wear because it's 4"+. I need to send it to Tiecrafters and have it narrowed.

    Breuer, RL Polo, Gieves & Hawkes (1991)
    I purchased the G&H when I did a summer study in England in college. It's really more of a souvenir of the trip. I don't remember the last time I wore it.

    I love your collection. Especially the RL Polo, Talbott, H&B, Beretta and Zegna ones.

    I agree. I sold a bunch but now I really need to get some for myself.

    Where do you usually get them from? It's hard to find a good selection at most places that carry them.

    The only ones that I found were by sheer fluke, more than anything else.

    My local Nordstrom (Roosevelt Field) has a great selection but they cost $145.

    Yes, I usually find them at Nordstrom or Saks, but all the good ones seem to cost a pretty penny. [​IMG]

    So far, I've really liked Chorse's and three of AlanC: Holliday & Brown, Beretta, and second Polo. I prefer the larger paisleys. The four I own: [​IMG] Have never worn the first, but it was $2 at a thrift store, brand new R Talbott. Actually, I got the first three from thrift stores.

    I have a pocket square from RLPL that looks like the center one. It is wild, but awesome.
