Lochaven Tie? 
4th-May-2013 02:39 pm
Does anyone here own one of the Lochaven ties? I have their sweater vest, and was debating buying a tie, but I'm not sure what the difference really is between their tie and Noble's/Universal's.

I have seen both the Lochaven ties and the Noble Collection ties in real life, so I hope I can give you some guidance (keep in mind that the Gryffindor ties were the most relevant to me, so I didn't pay that much attention to the Slytherin ones, haha).

Here you have some pictures of the ones from Lochaven (you can see it on the labels): http://souvenirfinder.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/dsc00920.jpg and http://www.livelochaven.com/sitepix/products/large/large_DSCF2464.JPG. I think they seem more shiny and darker green in colour than the ones from Noble Collection. They are made of 100 % polyester and made in Great Britain.

Here is a picture of the ones from Noble Collection: http://images.noblecollection.com/images/products/NN7623.jpg. As you can see, the colour is a bit brighter and more mat/dull, less shiny than the ones from Lochaven. They are made of 100 % silk, and comes in a Madam Malkin's box. They are much more expensive than the ones from Lochaven, though.

Compared with this picture, the ones from Noble Collection seem the most accurate, if you want my opinion: http://c3e308.medialib.glogster.com/media/b1/b15ccff6b825c13bdd3efa5d66989754631ce24e542c5a995255da58fbec785a/3779089-f260-jpg.jpg

Hope this helps!
