My tie collection has grown very rapidly the last couple of years, especially after I started working as a Management Consultant. I’ve tried ties in several different price ranges, and there are of course pros and cons with the different ties I’ve tried. Some may argue that “less is more”, and that you should have a smaller range of good quality ties. I like to mix it up quite a lot, so that doesn’t really work for me =). The negative side of having many ties is that the favorite ones don’t get the use they deserve, but that only means that you don’t wear ties as much as you should or could.
You can find ties in all price ranges. As I like my wardrobe to be affordable, and I like having many ties, buying ties for over 1000kr doesn’t make sense for me. I also don’t think that the ties in that price range are that much better. In my personal opinion you can find really good quality ties in the price range between 500-800kr. Several brands offer ties for around 700kr, where I think you get the most value for money. I’ve tried some different producers in and recently found a new interesting actor in this price range. A small store in Stockholm located at Rörstrandsgatan named Andrew’s Ties (link to website).
I had a long chat with Henrik, the store owner in the store not long ago and was really inspired by his passion for the products they offer.
About Andrew´s Ties :
Andrew’s Ties was founded in 2010 by Henrik, the store owner and a real tie enthusiast. His objective was to offer a wide and unique range of accessories and shirt with high quality and to a reasonable price. Most of the accessories are produced in very limited batches, (in most cases only 2-3 ex) and the range that Andrew’s Ties offers changes continuously.
At the moment you can find ties, bow ties, pocket square, shirts, belts, scarves, knitwear and more. The productions takes place mainly in the Como-region in Italy but Andrew’s ties offers products from other manufacturers/brands as well, e.g. very unique vintage ties from Passaggio Cravatte.
Andrew’s Ties offers B2B services and can e.g. make clothes and accessories with unique company logos or similar. They also offer events where companies can attend 4-8 persons and have their own personal shopping experience. Perfect way to get your consulting attire in shape =)
