    Very nice. That fabric looks like it was designed by Edvard Munch in his Scream period.

    Here is a sighting out in the wild of the Wool O'Wisp I posted the other day.

    I know I'm hiding the better parts, but I think of it as protection.

    It's a great tie. And I love it's name too! Very whimsical.

    I found this tie at a church tag sale today. It is 54" long, and 2 3/8" wide. I'm guessing it's from the 1960s. It was made by a company called Columbus, and the tie is called "The Suburban".

    Thanks guys!

    @Michael: That's one nice combination: classic but en vogue, too!

    @RS: Nice tie, but this suit is great!

    Mean Eyed Matt you're right, that's a great brocade. The pattern and colors are fantastic!

    Nice to see them in action Michael and RS.

    Michael the hand loomed woolie works very well with the tweed vest. Sharp!

    The Suburban goes well with that
    3 button Retro Spectator. Nice Kennedy Era vibe you got going, it suits you.

    Looks like you had some rousing luck RetroSpectator -not only finding a tie, but also finding a suit to go along with it!

    Here's another of my recent finds, a nice 1930's tie that I've already had occasion to wear several times:

    Thanks fellows. I've been on an experiment of never wearing the same set of clothes twice. But about maybe once every two weeks or so I hit on a combo that really works for me and they go into the memory banks for future use when the experiment is over. This one was one of them. The Donegal vest is handloomed as well, by one of the last makers in Ireland.

    That is a nice suit you picked up RS. Fits like it was made for you. I really have a hard time finding good vintage suits in my area.

    And a nice old deco tie Melancholic N.

    I bought this collection of 30's - 50's ties on ebay a little while ago. Some are just my taste, others not so much. Still they are all nice in their own way!

    To start with my favourites:

    Kleinhans co.

    no label

    And perhaps the most interesting, this aptly named 'Mash tie'.

    What a great pattern! It's a shame about the damages... I don't know, though, if you can say it's badly ironed, ties from these years often have an odd shape similar to this one where they get really wide towards the end. (a shape that I actually really like!)

    that Sulka's an interesting one with the spots on stripes.

    i can't work out what is going on with the Mash Tie.... is that the lining visible through a mesh front ???

    Killer haul Dostioffsky!! I agree with Bob, the Hollyvogue is my favorite, but there's not a one in the lot I wouldn't wear. Congrats.
