The picture gives the impression that it is what I would call a full on expensive city tie - great material and quite broad. In fact the material and finish and excellent, and the colours too - all really smart, but, and a small but significant but, the tie is a little narrower than I had hoped or would have liked. That said, the quality of the material, colour and finish are really very good indeed, prompt delivery too - so, for the budget price I paid, I give it a very good effor for quality, certainly excellent value for money. A superior every day tie, but not that very special one.
This was my favourite tie before I damaged my first one, so I've just placed an order for a second one. It's a good material, great design, and slim enough to be modern and fashionable without going too far in that direction. Great purchase, and I'll be looking carefully at the other designs as well.
