Visited as many stores as I could yesterday to apply the knowledge I gained from this forum. Couldn't find anyone who sell seven-fold ties, so I'm wondering if someone could kindly post some pictures comparing these different tie constructions. This note is from Chuck (sartorialsolutions) posted some weeks ago at Andy's forum. http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/F...p?TOPIC_ID=905 So what should a tie cost? Acetate-backed standard silk tie - never more than $25 Self-tipped - $30 Self-tipped, hand finished, heavy silk - $50 Seven fold - current fashion in the folding style we have now - $100 MAX. Seven-fold, entirely handfolded, handsewn, handrolled edges, most expensive silk and construction possible? $125.
