    ...So, I need some more ties. I don't want superskinny 1" ties, nor do I want 3.75" power ties [​IMG] I've been poking around on the internet, and I found a site (www.narrowties.com) that has the width I like, 2" to 2/5", what are your thoughts on that? Secondly, are there any other places to get narrow-not-skinny ties? I'm looking for a good variety. Too bad Helmut Lang went under, this would be a lot easier [​IMG]

    Band of Outsiders makes some really cool skinny ties (2-2.5") that I've seen at Barneys

    Banana Republic website has a section for their "Heritage" line that has thin ties

    Thin ties seem easier to find these days...I got 2 pairs at Bloomingdales in really cool vibrant prints for $15 ea, on sale from $85 ea

    oh, and Penguin only makes skinny ties. They probably have the best selection in one place on their online store.

    Hah! I was coming to this thread to recommend Helmut. Dries van Noten makes narrow ties on regular basis. SS 06 there were tons of them left at Barneys at $40-50...

    Brooks Brothers also has the University tie, which is just shy of 3 inches across, though their website shows a rather meager selection.

    Jil Sander and Marc Jacobs made/make beautiful silk narrow ties. I bought around 20 from Century 21 in NY over the last year or so. Club Monaco makes a narrow tie as well, but they aren't well stocked in the NYC stores. Jack Spade also made ties, but I haven't seen them recently. The Steven Alan store had those Band of Outsiders ties on sale last time I was there. Does the Steven Alan brand make a tie?

    I would buy those if there weren't a stupid penguin logo at the bottom. Still trying to find decently priced narrow silk knit ties.

    Don't forget our own Mulberrywood will make ties to any width. I've got an order coming up.

    Three inches is the perfect width.

    I second the motion. Excellent service, construction and silks.

    Land's End "Skinny Ties" are 3" wide, and a good value.

    Kiton has slimmed down as well since I started buying in 1997. I prefer the wider version but both are nice.

    Go bespoke ties and it will be less than an Hermes, Brioni or Kiton tie.

    I think I just saw a pig fly outside my window.
