Hidden Gem: Mountain and Sackett Ties

Mountain and Sackett Wool Tie via Mountain and Sackett, $74.00
Mountain and Sackett Wool Tie via Mountain and Sackett. $74.00.
It took several hours of Google searches, but we've unearthed a domestic neckwear manufacturer with a great story and even better ties. Handmade in Manhattan since 1957, Mountain and Sackett is currently making the best wool ties we've seen, and they're just $74. Plus, now that "skinny" (jeans, ties, lapels, wallets) is as dead as a damn doornail, their bold 3 3/4" width adds additional style points.
