    I picked up one of these at Nordstrom Rack today (along with a nice Talbott Estate tie, some Ike Behar 7 folds for $15 each, and a few other ties) in a blue/silver/black stripe, and it appears to be a nice woven 7 fold. Anyone know anything about Versa ties?

    It says "Versa: Milan, New York" on it, and appears to be self-tipped.

    Hi Drizzt,

    The Versa stuff I have seen has mainly been shirts at Loehmann's in DC. They are nice looking, but of medium to low quality IMO. I would be surprised (and intrigued) if the Versa tie is indeed a seven fold - could it be a self-tipped four fold?

    I pulled it apart a bit and it appears to be functionally identical to my Ike Behar, Carlo Franco, and Kiton 7 folds...

    I've seen many Versa ties in the Long Island Loehmann's, but I haven't come across any seven folds. They have some pretty nice patterns with unimpressive quality. They're usually priced around $20-30.

    I'll take a pic of it and post it later, it seems pretty nice to me.
