    What's the next step up from The Tie Bar

    I have a number of ties from The Tie Bar and have been pretty happy with them. I usually wear a dress shirt — or OCBD — with a tie and V-neck sweater to work or occasionally, a sport coat. In the near future, I'll be wearing a suit to work, four out of five days a week. I'd like to up my tie game but not by much. My question is: what is the next step up from The Tie Bar? I've got a couple of Sam Hober ties and they are fantastic; however, I can't justifying spending $90.00 a tie for every tie in my wardrobe (wouldn't that be nice). Anyway, The Tie Bar is $20 a tie, and I'm thinking maybe $35 to $45.00. FYI, I spend <$500 on suits and Allen Edmunds is my go-to dress shoe.

    Chipp Neckwear is a good tie for around 45-55, Berg & Berg when on sale can be had around that price, too. SuitSupply is a good option when they have their outlet open and you can get some of their overpriced ties for $20 a piece.

    eBay. You can grab great BBs for $10 and if you're lucky even higher end brands for $40-50. Short of seeing a tie you can't live without in a store, I don't know why you'd shop anywhere else for them.

    I buy a lot of Brooks Brothers ties on EBay, what other brands should I look for?

    Look around for good ties that are half off or more. I just bought 12 BB ties from Macys for $22 each.

    eBay is great and you can usually find good deals at Marshalls if you have one locally.

    Lands End. As always, wait for a sale.

    Brooks outlet ties (when on sale) are pretty good if you want to buy new and not pay much more than TTB. They are a good step up in quality, and I'm pretty sure they are made in the US. I'm done with TTB.

    Otherwise, there are great ties to be had cheap on eBay.

    I like J Crew on sale (at least 50% off MSRP), but they are usually 2 3/4" so that will not work with all lapel sizes. Suitsupply outlet are solid for the price. Chipp is great for around $50. Ebay and thrift stores can get you some amazing deals. I got a Charles Tyrwhitt tie from their clearance section I am happy with for the price. A while back I got some nordstrom rack and on sale Macys ties (I think Calvin Kline and Tommy Hilfiger labeled maybe?) for like $15 each that I actually like more than the two Tie Bar ties i own.

    Sorry for the double post, editing apparently doesn't jive well on the mobile version of the site. Anyway, S&M pricing is $44 Canadian, if you order multiple ties it drops $35 each. In US dollars, $32 and $26 each, respectively.
