    I like red thin ties. I don't like any width increase however. I like the length to be the same throughout the tie like some DH ties. Know of anyone who might sell them for around 40 bucks? Thanks.

    I don't know if you'll find any ties like this for around $40 that are well made, besides the occasional ones that might show up on ebay. Your best bet is to learn how to alter regular ties yourself (or pay someone else to do it) so that they're the same width all the way through the length.

    The zara in Georgetown? I noticed D.C. under your name. I live in Springfield. I was at the gtown store and didn't look for them. I'll give it a shot. I tried on some cardigans and sweaters from there and everything was ridiculously short on me.

    Thrift is a good bet, and American Apparel actually had some thin cotton ties last time I was in there. Quality in both cases is meh, but for <$40...

    I have a number of deadstock consignment thin ties I will be selling in the next couple of weeks. Very sober and contemporary.

    Anymore vintage Paul Stuart ties by any chance? I regret not buying more of those narrow ones back when you had them. [​IMG]

    Yep, thats the one. If you goto the back left of the Mens area, theres a black cabinet with lots of ties, including some thin ones... if you see a purple shiny one... i returned that recently [​IMG]

    I kept a sweet black silk tie from there tho.
    H&M occasionally will have some thin ties laying around as well.

    Barney's Co-op has one. A bit more expensive than what you wanted, but...
