    FYI: for folks on a tight budget, several hours of web searching have turned up Jaan J. They're microfiber, but only $34. Appropriate wedding ties are scattered around the site, but they have glen plaid, houndstooth, and the elusive shepherd's check and macclesfield. I'll probably get them for my groomsmen.

    Can anyone recommend a good source for a wedding tie at or under $80? I have seen Kent Wang and that's about it.

    This may not be orthodox, but I picked up this black/white gingham tie recently. Maybe it could work for a wedding:

    Anon,

    We have wedding ties at $80 and like all our Sam Hober ties are completely bespoke so we start with a roll of silk and make the tie as you wish. length, width, shape, construction and so on..

    #11 & #12 are temporarily are here:

    Some others here:

    And we plan to add many more in the future.

    Great! Thanks. How long does each tie take to make?

    Currently orders are being made in about 2 weeks. To make a 3-fold tie takes about 2 hours and we will keep your pattern on file for future orders.

    David, do your plans include a black and white shepherd's check or houndstooth? Like this shepherd's check: [​IMG]

    Greekonomist, While I could not see the pattern very well in the photo I can give a strong yes as my answer. I personally like classic ties and we do well with traditional designs. Our long term goals are to have on hand all the basics in black and white as well as other colors. On hand means always not as seasonal offerings. If you can show me a close-up photo that will be very helpful. Disregarding the color here are some similar designs woven in English silk: [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Thanks. Those houndstooths look great. Unfortunately I don't have a close up, but it seems to be a slightly larger-scale version of the Lands' End tie Parker posted above.

    Sorry to bump an old thread, but are these rules for the groom/groomsmen or all guests?

    I would be interested in the answer to this question as well.

    When did Land's End begin carrying the London Lounge Club Tie?
