    Found thise one recently, I think 1930's. Still in a perfect condition except for the blue dye which has faded. But I think I actually prefer it like that! The weave is lovely too.

    Thanks! I found a (I think) 1920's tie in the same shop as well. But haven't really taken good pictures of it yet.

    Pretty excited about this; I just got this whole box of early 20's bow ties. Including a bunch of 'jazz bows'! Some do have fraying to the silk, but most are fine. The metal clips are really tight though, I'll have to carefully bend them a bit for them to able to put them on.

    On the Dutch equivalent of ebay. The seller found them at an antiques market in Perpignan, southern France.

    Sherlock Holmes and I hate bow ties; we try our best to hide them.

    What Eddie said....I'm not normally a bow tie fan apart from black or white for formal wear but those are pretty nice!

    Although it's long ago I have to agree with all the others: these find is marvelous, Dostioffsky!

    Here's what I got today:
    very small (3 1/7" x 2") pre tied bow tie - green with white dots - unfortunately a bit fadet and dirty
    20's? 30's? I don't really know. Any thoughts?

    And here's another one I caught for 0,50€ some month ago:
    German/European pre tied bow tie - probably 20's - reminds me of these Dostioffsky ones

    Found this 1930's bowtie (marked "Albersia D.R.P." - German Reich patent) in a thrift store among a heap of ugly plastic 70's bowties.

    I got this new skinny bow tie from Amazon. I personally prefer skinny bow ties to fat bow ties. This bow tie was made by a company called The Tie Bar.

    After work today I stopped by a large indoor flea market/tag sale/thrift store. I found a 1960s summer sport coat but sadly it was for a taller than average person. Fortunately, I stayed and found two 1950s/1960s bow ties. :D

    Late 50s/60s clip-on bow tie. Yellow diagonal stripes.
