    I picked up these yesterday:

    These were from a junk shop in London (two for 5):


    These were from a vintage shop ('Crazy Man Crazy' in Crystal Palace):



    I love the design since 'L' is my initial. What does the label suggest for the period?

    I received the two neckties as a gift. $1 a piece at a thrift shop in Idaho!

    The pictures don't show the leaf embroidering very well.




    The pictures don't do the colors of this tie justice at all. They really pop, and there's a very nice blue running through the flower stem.




    I purchased this NIB 1950s single-sided bow tie off eBay UK. It seems that Britain is the place to look for vintage formal wear.

    ^^Excellent neckties. Van Cruise was a famous series. Interesting that the Vogue tie has two manufacturer labels with the company name featured.

    I would say c.early-'50s. I wish I had that since my name starts with L, too!

    Here's an interesting specimen from my collection. I tried to get the details, but it's got a crazy brocade, centered tag (which I've never seen on pre-60's ties), and a reinforced middle section.

    ^^That is an interesting tie; I'm not familiar with the Parlona line. Center tags do go back to the '50s, but are rare.

    Famous enough a series for me to buy every Van Cruise I can get my hands on for a reasonable price.
    Vogue wasn't exactly a cheap tie so they could afford more labels. The real chance is that the hanging tag would have been removed and the sewn on one left behind. For some reason it was not exactly in vogue to leave labels on ties. It infuriates us tie collectors though as we find many of these ties without attribution possible.
    People think they are so rebellious and original, when really they are just banal, boring and dumb.

    Merritt Cravats made many lines and this is one of them. Many of them were of higher quality and included reinforcements as shown. The tags were mostly square and denoted the series of tie that it was. Another line of ties that was not very cheap so you won't see tons of them.
