    I feel like the Stefano Ricci Luxury Collection are the nicest I've handled. I am not much of a tie guy, though.

    For wearing or for flipping? Totally different answers

    For wearing: Robert Talbott (BOC, Estate, or 7-Fold) - I am a bigger guy and I like a substantial tie that is durable and holds a knot. Plus, at their second-hand pricepoint (who pays retail?), I don't feel bad if I destroy one or give one away.

    For flipping: Dildo quindici or venticinque - No explanation necessary

    For target practice: Charvet - You literally have to wear gloves when handling some of the woven ones or they will spontaneously break out in pulls and runs.

    Na strictly for wearing. No flippy. I like hearing opinions of others in here. Recently fell in love with a Brioni of mine. Knot on point with that tie, every time.

    E-Thrift, sooooooooooooooooo pleased with this cop n' pop.
    Snagged these BEAUTIES off the bay for a killer price. You do not see these come up often (like ever), and when they do, they're unwearable. In pristine deadstock condition. Notice '25PSI' on the gigantic air bubble; back when Nike used to individually pressurize the air bubbles according to running pressure points. Crazy.
    Feast your eyes on amazingness fellas.

    I don't own any but am always super impressed with Hober. Charvet ties a great knot but definitely accurate on the fragility of the wovens. Would also gives Drakes a mention.

    I like Canali, Brioni, RLPL, and I know I am going to get shit for this, but the Joseph A. Bank Signature ties (the nice thick well made versions) NOT the executive cheapos, are actually really nice ties. They are long enough for me, they are thick and provide a good knot, and they don't snag if you look at them the wrong way.

    I have never had a Tom Ford or Hermes. I am hoping that they aren't completely awesome because right now I don't know what I am missing.

    Most of my favorite ties are vintage and not necessarily popularly recognized brands.

    Dude I have to agree with you on the JAB sig ties. Excellent knot tiers, look very very nice.
