Bought this in the mid 80's but I'm still in love with it. A pure silk one by Gianfranco Ferré.
One thing that I find is that vintage ties from the 60s and earlier generally don't have the satin lining on the back. Most of the time they have no lining whatsoever. 60s ties tend to have the back being a folded up portion of the front. Earlier ties tend to have a simple sewn corner. Length is a big thing too. Vintage ties tend to be shorter than modern ties, getting shorter (as a general rule) the further back you go. They are also much thinner, with some late 50s and 60s ties seemingly being completely "unpadded" (with some exceptions.)As a non tie wearer for 41 years, I don't have the experience with determining vintages. Is there a good primer to identify what is what? As I mentioned earlier, I basically grab thicker or textured ties with colors I like but have no idea what is dated or not.

Thanks Matt. There are a few in here I really like, and a lot of old style lightweight constructions.Some real beauties in this bunch, Michael: congrats!
Thanks Bob. They had a lot of cool ties out today. I left many on the rack. No doubt to tempt me again. ha ha. I might have to try to look up the NWO.Good Lord Michael! They just keep comin'!
Don't know a thing about that Missouri organization, sorry.
Super nice finds all around!
NWO turned out to be quick and easy. http://freepages.history.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~haefner/Necktie/ Just another Missouri scam artist. Ha ha. Kidding. Now the linked article could be a scam too, you'll just have to show me.
