My parents decided to pick up some Rubinacci ties on their recent venture to Europe. Enjoy. First two on the left are from the boutique in Rome and the two on the right are from London. All are unlined and make for wonderful knots.

They are all beauties. What's the price difference between London and Rome?

Your parents are familiar with Rubinacci? Quite nice ties, especially the latter three.

I'm going to visit London and buy in Italy.

Can't be good for the UK economy...

What is strange is that the difference for a suit is about $35 between Naples and London. Oh, wait until you see how much they are at the Carlyle

Exquisite ties Bill, especially the London pair. You must have been a very good boy this year!

Wow, those really are fabulous ties. I'd be hard-pressed to pick a favorite--it's a very good selection!

Not quite. EUR 110.00 are about GBP 75.00.

Which is not too bad, considering that many things here in the UK cost about the same amount in GBP as on the continent in EUR, which means they're about 50% dearer.
