This tie looks as amazing in hand as it does on this site. I am very, very pleased with this purchase and I will definitely buy from Ties.com again. The tie is very well made and is very affordable - especially for someone who is trying to expand the nicer end of their wardrobe. Shipping was also fast and the presentation of the box was very nice. If not this tie, buy something from Ties.com and see how satisfied you will be as a customer. By the way, I rarely review anything I buy, but I think this site - along with the blogs and articles, and the customer service people who gave me advice on what to pair with this tie - is a phenomenal place to look for all of your suiting essentials. With Ties.com, I don't get the whole big corporation vibe with employees who couldn't care less about their customers. Ties.com cares and they are awesome.
