    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.

    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]

    Slightly off-topic, as they are not wallet friendly:

    Loro Piana will make you a very nice solid tie. I specified seven-fold and extra-long length, in a solid light blue. You can browse through the fabric books at your leisure. They contain many solids and small repating patterns (name for this?). No pizza grenade stuff.

    They'll even give you a free cup of coffee, but not pizza.

    Solid colors are pretty rare for these brands. Other than knits, I dont recall ever seeing a solid lands end.

    For me, I'd stick with Brooks Brothers. Most other brands make a very cheap and think solid tie. They lose their shape easily and tend to glisten too much.

    I have a chipp2 navy grenadine. I believe it was under $50 shipped. You need to call him as the website only shows items realting to dogs. He will send you swatch samples for the greandine ties.

    In addition to the manufacturers above, I like vintage ties which can often be found on eBay at reasonable prices.
