Today's interesting notes from the world of neckwear: First up is an interesting take from Brooks Brothers on the classic repp tie that you don't see all to often. The repp knit is the perfect marriage between two iconic pieces of neckwear that style dorks love. The texture and unique look of a knit tie plus the recognizable stripes and color combinations of your standard repp tie work incredibly well together. The result is as familiar as it is unique and I should mention that you get a pretty slick looking knot with all the different colored stripes. Wrapping up with something cheaper, The Tie Bar is now selling wool versions (70% wool, 30% silk) of their incredibly cheap slim ties. I'll be the first to tell you that these ties aren't anything to write home about quality wise, but if you need some seasonal neckwear on the cheap you could do a whole lot worse.
