Q: Hi Bagaholicboy, I need your help with some recommendations on designer ties for guys. X’mas is around the corner and I thought it would be nice for me to get a tie from Louis Vuitton for my guy. Other than Vuitton what other brands would you recommend? Is Hermès a good idea? My budget would be around SGD300 and so it’d be great if you could let me know the prices as well. Thanks so much for your kind help once again. I can’t tell you how addicted I am to your blog!
A: Dear Seow Hui, in case you haven’t realised, this blog is about bags, not ties. But I jest. Luckily I am interested in ties so I just may be able to help you out here.
Personally I feel that where you buy a tie from is not important, but why you buy it is. I only own one tie from Louis Vuitton and for me it holds all the good I love about Vuitton, simply by owning (and using it) I am making my personal statement. Some men wear any tie because it’s convenient, others collect ties from a certain brand, and yet others buy ties from various brands in specific colours.
That said, find out more your man’s personal preferences when it comes to designs and colours before you start shopping. Prices start from around SGD290 for those from Vuitton and SGD270 for a silk twill tie (shown above) from Hermès. And don’t forget to check out those from Gucci as well.
