    www.thetiebar.com - $15 thick silk ties.

    I own ties from Drakes, Tom Ford, Marinella, etc etc, and the TieBar ties have a knot and dimple with the best of them.

    TaxGenius, it's usually safe to pick a tie that complements the minor color of the suit. Of course, it also depends on what color shirt you wear and what pattern (if any) is on the shirt.

    Hey dude

    You look light a pretty slim guy, so you might want to look at slightly slimmer than standard (3.5") ties. If so, I heartily recommend looking for Lands End and J Crew ties on eBay. Both are fantastic value and do lots of staple soporifics.

    B&S for sure. Lots of well priced ties from the thrift store contingent here who find nice ties that don't fit in their collection, as well as guys looking to pare down theirs. Or guys like Spoo who find them in their couch and don't know what to do with them.
