    That's an awesome bunch, Dostioffsky! All of them great ties I would wear. I'm a bit jealous... :oops:
    But I specially like the first Kleinhans for the pattern and the Cheney for the extraordinary color combination.
    The Sulka and the Charvel & Fils are real beauties as well

    You're right: I'm pretty shure it is the correct/original shape. But it is "badly ironed" because the edges are as flat as a sheet of paper now...

    Thanks, Dale.
    The colors & mainly the pattern is a bit "German Bold Look": to flashy for the conservatives ;)
     
  5. These ties would all be from the 1970's & a few from the 1980's. I didn't take any measurements or photo any tags. Since I'm not a collector of ties I'm just wondering if there is anything interesting from a collector standpoint? I have a few ties from the 1930's - 1940's that were my grandfathers put away somewhere. I'm still looking for those.

    Jack, I can't comment on collectibility as I'm a novice but i see several I like and would wear, if I still wore ties. I especially like the first two from the left in the first pic and the far right one in the last pic.
     
  7. Those were always among my favorites as well.

    I'm diggin' those two on the far left as well, Jack.

    As to collectibility, there is a growing market for those big ol' polyester 70s models.

    Unfortunately I've been going through a bit of a dry period here, but I recently picked these two up:

    First up, a quite skinny 1960's tie, that I at first thought was modern because of the design.
    The tie (coin for size reference):

    While not vintage, this may be of interest to some. This was my second find, and probably the most prestigious tie label I have come across.

    Nice finds MelancholicNostalgic. Congrats on breaking the dry spell. I'm sure all of us here can relate.

  14. MelancholicNostalgic -- I would have bought those two as well! I also found a 3-digit Hermes at a thrift a while back. Mine is 733. I think they date from the 1970s. Probably the only way I would ever buy one ...

    Hello all. I've been particularly interested in these solid colored neckties with a small geometric design in the center. They appear sometimes in Mad Men and Call the Midwife and other 50s/60s period pieces.

    I've finally found a couple in some charity shops in London.

    Would love to know the meaning of 'HAA'. Historic Airplane Association naturally presents itself, but I cannot find any matches.

    Red 'Bur-Mil' (rayon?) fabric. Black and white geometric design; second one appears to be misaligned? Superba label.

    Blue Dacron polyester. Green and orange diamonds with plant-like design. RN 19388
    [​IMG]

    With the exception of the red tie, none of the the center designs appear to have been embroidered on separately. They do reappear on the backs and tailed as misaligned and spaced out.

    Is there a specific name for this design? I'm a little fatigued at searching "vintage tie".

    I get mixed results with 'tie with center graphic' and 'tie with center medallion'.

    Nice finds Upgrade!! I don't know if there's a specific name for the style, but they were very prominent late 50s through mid 60s.

  17. Upgrade -- congrats on the finds. I'm a fan of this style as well.

    Nice!!! I'm an especially big fan of the black one with the cream and copper colored designs. And plaid is always a score, of course. Congrats on the finds.

    Very nice ties! My favorite one is the green one. :D
