Argyll & Sutherland

... is an infantry regiment of the British Army within the Scottish Division. Their regimental color tie is, in my opinion, the perfect tie. I've seen them here and there, most recently around the neck of my company's CFO. That day, I spent my lunch break at the thrift shop and found one. It was a little beat up and not of the best quality to start with. But it was worth a buck to try it out.

Now I'm searching for a good deal on a nice one. Something on par with but not necessarily Ben Silver or Brooks Brothers. Speaking of BB, they have a gorgeous A&S bow tie that I'm fighting very hard not to order from their web site as I write this.

The style's not going anywhere, and sooner or later somebody is gonna be going out of business or just need to clear out some inventory. I'll just have to keep my eyes open.


  1. I haven't been able to find a reasonably priced bow tie in ages… in fact, I've stopped looking. This makes me want to go back to hunting down a few.

  2. It's hot or miss but I've had decent luck at Filenes and Marshalls. Usually $9.99 sometimes $19.99 but never more.
