Whatever looks good, is well made, complements my suits and shirts and is on sale at NM Last call. I've picked up some top brand name ties priced at or lower than mall ties. I buy the tie, not the brand.

Go to a discount store like Century 21. They have designer ties for 30-60 dollars

Mountain & Sackett are great for the price.

I really like some of the ties at Muji. Unfortunately, there is only one location in Seoul, and they seem to be cutting down on their selection.

I don't see ties as a real value buy. I mean, even very expensive ones are $200, unless I'm missing something.

I dig Zegnas ties, oddly.

Anything you like and buy and wear happily is a good value for the money.

So in that case no brand is and all brand is depending on what you buy and like.

Quite correct! I am 100% with you on this one.

Funny enough, I have ended up with a lot of Robert Talbott ties - usually they are very nicely priced and well made. I just for some reason home in on them particularly when they are only around $30 on sale.

I rarely could be bothered to spend $100 plus on a name brand tie unless the said tie had an interesting pattern / design I could not find anywhere else.

I quite like the vintage look of Etro ties, but at $70 each at outlets, I dont buy a lot of them.

For a tie, $50 and under is my preference, and there are plenty in that price range that are good.

Best value? You kidding right? Great ties, but I thought their prices ran into the 100's rather than 10's.

I've seen a few. To wit, one in Times Square in Youngdeungpo, and one in the Lotte Young Plaza in Myeongdong.
