    Send a PM to our Owner, The Wizzard (aka Freedom Kilts). He doesn't stock XMarks ties himself, but he can refer you to the company that does.

    It's a truly great and appropriate design.

    I sent an email inquiry to the company that produced the tie we voted on only to be told that the have discontinued that design.

    Perhaps we could begin the search for an appropriate replacement.

    In that case and I hope I am not treading on any toes here, may I just say that many members of Xmarks have found the ABF(Army Benevolent Fund) tie works very well with most tartans and for most occasions. Someone here even described the ABF tie as the "xmarks hunting tie".

    ABF Tie

    I agree with Jock, the funds go to a very good cause and the ABF tie is distinct and easily identifiable. As well, the wearing of the ABF tie by X-markers may benefit the charity and xmarksthescot in making more people aware of both!
    It is a distinct, regimental style striped tie that I would particularily encourage anyone with a military background to adopt, as well as anyone who would like to help those in need who have served!

    Thumbs up Abf

    Perhaps if one of you gentlemen who own a ABF Tie would post a photo, then those in the market for one can adjudicate if it is the tie for them. Of course purchasing information would also be appreciated.
    Aye Yours.
