    Anyone know where I can get one for my travels as ties won't fit into shoes with shoe trees.

    That is an awesome one, and ranchsooner I think had some great ones in the buying and selling forum from RLPL from England

    I look at the RL store in BH and they had none. I wanted something in leather and remember those RLPL ones. Anyone else?

    Has anyone tried one of those hard plastic cases that you "wind" your ties up in? I have always found that wound or rolled up ties come out of a suitcase looking a lot better than folded ones (and it takes up less room).

    I no longer use a tie case. They take up extra room and my ties arrive in no better shape than if I simply pack them in with my shirts.

    Now that I try and carry on everything, I use that space for other things.

    I have the Col. Littleton tie case. Works great for me. I also like that it doesn't have a zipper to snag on.

    I use the sturdy faux wood grain box from David Hober.

    I've wanted one of those Col. Littleton cases for a couple of years. It looks great.

    This is what TCN is talking about I think:

    Those look like a lot of work and take up a lot of space. I usually roll up my ties and stick them in an old shoe bag.

    Against my better judgment, I bought another long leather envelope type of case from polo.com, on sale for $100. Looks cool, but small.

    I like it as I always tend ot over pack on ties. I can fit 8- 10 plus a few bows with no wrinkling.
