Fox Brothers just issued some new ties in collaboration Drake's. Thinking about the red one. $142 as of today's exchange rate. Not a bad price for Drake's at retail. Wish they were 8.5 or 9cm, though.

Have you checked Vanda Fine Clothing? They're offering 30% of their ties and will make them any size you want for a small fee.

I've been on their website along with Hober's but haven't ordered anything. What do you think of their ties?

E.G. Cappelli and Vanda are my favorite tie makers. Vanda ties are light and airy and they tie a beautiful knot.
I only have a few Cappelli ties. Only 90 euros on their website. Marinella is nice as well.

I prefer the fabrics Cappelli offers but the knot and hand of Vanda is superior. No more ties for me. Only thinking of bathroom tile and June 10th.
im in the same no more ties boat. I was close to pulling the trigger on some Vanda. But I’m focusing on bespoke right now. The 30% off at Vanda applies to only ties they made by mistake. Still nice tho.There was a 50 oz navy silk I was tempted by. But again. No more ties

Kind of the same here. Was just impulse shopping. I've done my bit recently for the independent shops I like, though.

Check ebay, Paul Stuart.
The secret my work colleagues who comment on my ties and braces don’t know is that they pretty much all came from The Bay.

I always thought that was an odd location for a BB. Apparently I wasn't the only one 😂
