There are plenty of items of clothing that we could easily argue looked better (and were made better) 50-100 years ago, but ties seem to really be hitting a peak. We estimate that is due to a renewed focus on quality fabrics and construction combined with a willingness in dudes to wear whimsical patterns about their necks.

Here are five bangers from The Hill-Side, Brooklyn-based maker of ties, scarves, and hankies crafted here in the U.S.A. We like the straight bottoms on these and the width—neither too skinny nor too wide (deviations either way can really date a tie)—and feel like there are prints to please just about any comers. Hickoree’s has them.
