They're excellent for the money.
If you are shopping for OCI I recommend just spending the money and getting a truly quality tie or two. Once you have an offer in hand and need to start building a larger collection then sure, go for places like thetiebar and save some money.
The ties I've got from thetiebar.com are pretty much going to be indistinguishable from the ties I've paid $50-$100+ for (at least from the point of the view of the interviewer—the story might be different if he yanked it off my neck to inspect it). I own ties at many points on the price spectrum—from Banana Republic to Brooks Brothers to YSL. There's a good chance that I'll be wearing ties from thetiebar.com during a lot of my OCI interviews/callbacks. I would recommend doing the opposite: Buy ties from thetiebar.com now when you're a poor student and wait until you're raking in six figures before dropping money on Burberrys or Thomas Pinks or Canalis.
