    What are some of your favorite tie brands? Besides the Brooks, It's hard for me to find a brand that carries a nice variety but that is still wallet friendly. Any thoughts?

    The sale ties are not too expensive.

    Drake's of London do indeed make very nice ties.

    J Crew often has nice solid colors, though it's not like the tie-quality is Hermes or anything. You can get them on sale for sub $40.

    I've been very happy with Mountain & Sackett. Quality, American-made, excellent customer service. (Free shipping on returns and they shorten the ties for me for free, too.) Especially like the wool ties. Edit: Forgot to add, lots of sale price ties for around $50.

    Holliday & Brown, Battistoni, Barbera, and Drake's are my favorites.

    Drakes are not what I would call wallet-friendly.

    J Press - though the store wide sale just ended a couple of weeks ago. I snagged a linen one and a silk one and am very happy with the knots they tie

    Brioni makes a lot of solid ties. Also, you can't beat Sam Hober. He makes a bunch of different colors.

    You didn't specify *how* wallet-friendly. For the sale price (I've bought them as low as $5, $10 is usually what I find them when they're an "old style" item) I love Michael Kors ties. They're soft, pretty thick, and durable. I've seen solid, stripe, and other patterns too, depending on whatever you may need. Mine have lasted me a few years. [​IMG]

    Take this with a grain of salt, my post count probably tips you off that I'm not a knowledgable veteran yet. [​IMG]
