Sweet Deal

  • The Beatles wore narrow knit ties on their debut American tour.

We've long been a supporter of Lands' End knit ties. The all-silk thread is yarn-dyed and then knit on Italian looms while the ties themselves are hand sewn here in the United States. Hold them in your hand and you'd be hard pressed to find many differences between these and designer offerings that cost three times as much. We just happened to be picking up another color, when we found this guy on sale. The intricate bird's-eye jacquard pattern is reminiscent of L.L. Bean's iconic Norwegian sweater. And since you'll soon be packing that away, this will add some nice texture to your spring shirting.

$29.50 (on sale) at Lands' End

With nearly every airline imposing a baggage fee nowadays, if you can get away with flying with just a carry-on, do it.
