Buying a tie can be difficult. If you don’t want to pay for an expensive bespoke tie, but don’t want to go to a Benetton and buy a random, cheap piece either, then the online shopping market might be your best bet.

With that in mind we did some research and found a few international tie companies that deliver to India.

Selling everything from formal wedding and country ties to cufflinks and gentlemen’s handkerchiefs, in all styles and patterns, they offer something for everyone.
