Seventeen years ago I made a "golden" find at a discount outlet store. In a large bin with many silk ties from previous seasons, many might be defined as vintage, I found some excellent Leonard Paris ties. I did not know the brand then but the tie felt like a $50- $100 or even more, very exclusive, and yes within days I sold some very quickly at $50+ on Ebay. I had to wait for 17 years to finally be able to get these wonderful ties (even more vintage now) directly from Leonard Paris, as they decides to re-produce their vintage designs.
The advantage of the "new" vintage Leonard Paris ties available on Tiedeals is that the silks are used this year to produce some wonderful "collector item" designs (instead of a 30 year old tie in "good" condition").
Leonard Paris also produces the fashion collection, large floral prints in colorful designs, and the novelty designs line with many unique animal and tiny prints.

Leonard Paris Ties Are Hand Made In Italy
Keywords: Leonard Vintage - Leonard Necktie - Leonard Paris Ties
Leonard Paris is an exclusive brand from France (most seasons, the Leonard tie is hand made in Italy). The stunning designs are almost all florals, with some striped prints with a tiny flower in cream, gray, maroon and navy mostly, very exquisite.
In 2018, Leonard produces several dozens of these vintage designs from the 1980's (brand new but vintage). Styles sell quick and just one of each, so make your choice.
The vintage Leonard tie is not for everyone. The vintage designs are in a more "dull" color scheme than the current fashion line collections, which are known for the extreme colorful designs (printed in one of the top factories in Italy).
