    I'm quite surprised no one has mentioned www.thetiebar.com yet. They have quite a wide selection of what the OP is looking for, and at $15 a tie they're pretty much a steal. Quality is probably not terribly great, but you can't really complain at that price.

    It always helps to be specific when you're asking for advice. I gave you useful advice based on what you asked - and yes, thanks, I did know that United Arrows stocks this kind of thing, that's why I suggested them to you. You said that you couldn't find these ties anywhere, which is a bit different than saying that you could find them but you couldn't afford them.

    So, $100 (US, I presume) is too much. You want cheaper, 2" silk ties. How cheap? What are you prepared to pay? How many do you think you need? etc.

    I'm looking for the $50 price range. Silk, cotten, linen, cord. I just want decent ties I guess.

    Just for anyone looking for the same thing, I have yet to find decent silk ones, but these ties seem very nice and are made in the USA.

    Those are as good as you will get for that price range. You could also try The Knottery, but I think the narrowest they do is 2.25 on square-ended knitted ties. You are really unlikely to find a wide range or choice tat gives you a combination of quality and 2" width in the price range you want, because 2" is a rather extreme 'fashionable' tie width not conventional male style.

    The width of your tie directly correlates to the width of your cawk. Any tie that is less than 7 inches wide is just embarrassing.

    I buy my ties from www.tiedeluxe.ca. Good selection, all silk skinny and classic size neckties. Also a good selection of silk bow ties and other accessories. Fast service, btw.
