    100 ties seems a bit excessive.

    Some of the designs seem okay, but I prefer solid colors with patterns or texture.

    Hope you like them.

    Yes they are excessive. However I bought them because they looked like a steal. What I had in mind was that if even a quarter of them are good it would be worth it. But now I am having change of feelings about them :puzzled:

    Most of them are hideous, but it looks like there's a few good ones in there.

    You did good, there are some good ones there, I'd probably toss more than half of them though.

    But you simply throw away those that you do not like or are sub-standard.

    What will be interesting is when you receive delivery and ask us which ones to keep and which to unload.
    It appears they are all 4 inch width and this was probably the reason for the sale as narrower ties are making a comeback. Nothing wrong with having some 4 inchers though. I still have plenty of them myself. You did fine. Welcome to Styleforum.
