Rated 1 out of 5 by Cliff07 Beware of BB Skinny Ties
I was surprised to find the tie was as "skinny" as it is #3.25"#, but the fault is mine, as I did not read the product description carefully enough. Unfortunately, the quality is also sub-par from ties I've bought from BB in the past. The tie is flimsy, and with such a skinny width and severe taper, I find this tie seems out of proportion for my Madison or more relaxed-fitting suits.
If you enjoy a more fashion-forward suit, such as the Fitzgerald fit, this tie will compliment that look very well. However, I am more of a traditionalist and prefer my ties be of a timeless 3.5"-4" width, which I find looks better with the Madison #classic# fit.
I lament the downfall of BB ties in both workmanship and dimension, and thus will be turning to other outlets.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SevenFoldTie not worth the price - even on sale
I buy many BB products, but for the last few years I have intentinally avoided BB ties due to substandard quality - no self tipping, flimsy weight, thin interlining. I took a gamble and purchased this tie in gold/burgundy. I got it on sale. I promptly returned it - for the very same reasons I had been avoiding BB ties. Given the various quality ties on the market, and available online, for the life of me I can't figure why anyone would pay full price, or even the sale price, for these ties. In all seriousness, they should retail for about $30.

It is such a classic tie red and navy and ties do wear out, or get spotted, I have ordered this tie at least 3-4 times in the last 20 years from Brooks Brothers. It is a classic.

If you have to get one Brooks Brothers tie, this should be it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PugetSoundBrooksFan Very satisfied
I bought this and 3 other repp ties to replace the 346 versions. These ties have a better lining and tie much better. They were an excellent value at 40% off on Father's Day week.
The 346 ties were very disappointing and I won't wear them. They neither tie nicely nor do they hang well. I do not recommend them! The lining makes a huge difference!

Solid value, good price, great conservative look. Tie could have a little more weight to the fabric, but overall it ties well and I am happy with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by alex02 Standrard choice for working environment
This tie is perfect for working environment. Although I have ties with better quality this one looks great almost with everything. Gold color (which I have) is bright. I agree with the customer who said that you will never go wrong with this tie.

One cannot go wrong with this classic tie. Works well with blazers, Solid color suits, glen plaids. Can be dressed up with a suit and cuff links, or dressed down with a sport coat or blazer.
The thin stripe on the red version is navy, not black.
