movie film necktie customer reviews

This tie has received the best testimonial ever, from the reputed most harsh of critics:

"The ties arrived today. They’re gorgeous! Thanks so much. Not only do I have a sharp addition to my wardrobe, I have a great story behind it. I opened the package in front of my 17-year-old daughter who checked them out and went, 'Wow. Cool.' – without even a hint of teenage sarcasm." - JD, Toronto, Ontario
