    This one is really nice. Bought it on a flea market in berlin but it doesn't have tags/labels.

    You should consider yourself very, very lucky for having found any German vintage ties at all. The only ties I ever find around thrift stores and flea markets are of the 70's polyester variety. :eeek:
     
  15. lol Especially a hand-painted one...

    I still don't get the difference between late 40s and early 50s ties. The one on the right is from Widebrim. I like to wear them with single breasted jackets that have a big V-opening.

    They are great! I am not in the market for ties at the moment but the collector/seller had a really good taste.

    It's not like there's a 'difference' between late-40s and early-50s ties, it's just that after 1952 everything started to narrow in width. Even though I've dealt with vintage ties for over twenty years now I can't positively date a tie be it 1948 or 1951.
     
  19. That is a good point as the widths didn't change overnight. Early 40s ties hardly exist though as they were either revamped 30s stuff and due to rationing of fabric, not many were made. From 1946 to 1952, millions upon millions were made. A lot of them came from California. Brands like Cohama, Hollyvogue and the like were knocking them out in patterns that changed weekly or monthly at the latest. :p
