What do people think of their store brand ties. I thought the designs were very nice and the price wasn't astronomical. But besides there ties, what do people think of that store in general. Seems like that place never gets mentioned here.

Barney's Store Brand Ties: Good or Bad?

This is precisely what I'm wondering. I've purchased some Barney's (store brand) ties that are, in my opinion, good quality ties for the price. I usually pick these up on sale for about $29. I've also purchased some Zegna ties there that I've been happy with.

I picked up a Barney's paisley tie at the Warehouse Sale a year ago for $20. I don't think I liked the design enough to pay $85 for it (retail), but it was a great deal at $20.

Barney's has some good stuff (especially their jeans), but the service there is usually quite bad.

I own a couple of the ties. Tey are good enough if you get them on sale, but I haven't been impressed to the point that I would stack them up against $85 competition. At $85 I would just spring a few more bucks for Talbott BOC, Behar, etc.

I have 3 that I have bought over the years and have been extremely happy. Good quality, great knot and the $85 price is a good $25-$35 cheaper than comparable ties.

Barneys NYC is an interesting store. I typically go there during the sales as they have an extensive tie collection and Drakes and Battistoni's on sale for ~$50 represent a great deal. The shoe collection is also more inspired than BG and Saks - they carry Harris, Lidfort, Berluti, Bettanin & Venturi, Heschung etc.

If you need to stock up on ties, the regular Barneys sale or the warehouse sale are great. The house label ties seem to vary in quality, some are less than fantastic, but on sale they are a decent value.

Definitely agree with Panzer on the Barneys shoe selection. Wider selection and better prices than the competition.

they have such a huge selection. You will definitely find something you like and something you hate. I have 1-2 of their brand and they are fine. It's not Kiton or Drakes, but it's a perfectly good tie.
