    I have a few Prochownik ties that are close to 15 years old that were purchased in Belgium and I have one that I purchased this past year in NYC.
    The new one is of decent construction but the quality is not as good as the older ones, I bought it because of the color (light blue stripe) and it was on sale.

    Hey guys, could we have posts that are more interesting and useful than enumerations of what we have? These types of threads strike me as particularly juvenile, like comparing baseball cards.

    I have a lot of John Varvatos 4 folds, some Pradas, some Donna Karans and Barney's, and assorted Hermes and Charvet, Kiton, Lanvin, and Borrelli ties. But does it really interest anyone or provide any useful information?

    With the number of people who have replied to this post, I'd have to say that this topic does interest people.

    My ties are all Marinella bespoke.

    Manton, in Milano they are at 90€. Cashmere at 120€. 3 weeks for bespoke, you choose the fabric that is sent back to Napoli.

    Marinella in my opinion has the better silk on the market; and they do not do just prints, also woven especially on the bespoke.

    Another service that Marinella does - I didn't hear of anyone else doing this - it's washing ties; well, they will dismantle completely the tie, specially wash the silk and ruibild it from scratch, so it does look new.

    Giona: most (at least 90%) of the Marinellas sold at Bergdorf in New York are prints.  But they are good prints.  I do have one woven, and one repp from them as well.
