The local TJ Maxx has gotten in some quite sharp, heavy woven ties: Prochownick, Bettini & Kenzo. Kenzo I'm somewhat familiar with Kenzo. Any thoughts on any of these?

THat is the beauty of a TJs, as opposed to a Filenes Basement or even NM Last Call. WHile the quality isn't as good as those other two, the people that tend to frequent there (1) know the names Hilfiger, Jones NY, etc., and (2) really differentiate between that last dollar or two, not knowing the extra value they are getting. A great example: Marshalls had Jones NY suits and Calvin Klein regular label suits for the exact same price. Two women approached me looking for a suit for their boyfriend for an upcoming wedding (why he didn't come to try stuff on, I have no idea). The Calvin Kleins were much nicer in terms of styling, construction, and fabric quality. But the Jones NY label was actually more famililar to the women (I'd guess because Jones NY is really geared towards women). I steered them to the Calvin Klein.That's good to hear. They've marked them down to $11 on clearance. I'd already decided to add Prochownick to the tie collection.
They've also now gotten some of the Harry & Sons ties in. Very impressive ties. I'll be keeping my eyes on those, as well. I've been impressed by the quality of some of the ties coming through there lately. They still have their Nautica, Tommy Hilfiger and DKNY staples, but they're really adding some higher quality items. A Hilfiger will regularly go for $12.99 while the Prochownick, for example, was only $2-3 more and even cheaper on clearance. Thankfully many are drawn to the wrong ties, thus allowing me to get even better deals on the finer ties.
