    Bought this in the mid 80's but I'm still in love with it. A pure silk one by Gianfranco Ferré.

    Thanks Bob. I haven't found any in a while. I love these late 40's and 50's ties

    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.)

    My first plain black tie, an Ike Behar (not familiar with this brand other than I have found a handful of nice ties from this brand), a nice blue striped Zegna, a brown tie that I liked the construction and colors and last but not least, a crazy Zegna tie. When I saw it, I thought to myself "who in the world could pull that off?" Then it hit me, Michael_A could. When he checks his PMs and sends me his address I'm planning on sending this tie his way.

  10. Nothing too exciting, but this will pair well with plaid shirts.

    The Denver (Store for Men), 1886 - 1987, linen, 54" x 3". The second photo is more representative of the color.

    I ran onto a few new neckties today, including a few old ones. But first this newish XMI that has the most pronounced shot brocade effect I've seen. Didn't photograph as well as it looks in person, but from different angles,

    It's very different colors

    Now, from left to right, a Wembley, a NWO, a Landa and a Haband
    [​IMG]DSCN2116 crop by Michael A2012, on Flickr
    The NWO is NOS
    [​IMG]DSCN2117 by Michael A2012, on Flickr
    On the back side o the label it says "Employment - Not Charity" and Acetate. You know anything about this Bob?
    The Landa is handwoven in Peru, presumably of alpaca judging by the design,

    Left to right, the square bottomed one with the horse is unlabeled, as is the next one, the green silk one is labeled only to Kay's Men's Wear in Van Nuys California, the next is unlabeled, then a Resislio labeled to Herman Kucharo of Des Moines, an Arrow, a Faultless by Wilson Bros sold by Beusch's in Jefferson Iowa, and finally another unlabeled one.

    Last batch, left to right, Berkley Ties the World All Silk, a Rapson,s Rayon for National Shirt Shops (Coast to Coast, they say), unlabeled, the green geometric is also unlabeled as is the plaid woolie, then a Cheney Cravats and finally another unlabeled.
    [​IMG]DSCN2127 crop by Michael A2012, on Flickr
    The Cheney is NOS
    [​IMG]DSCN2132 by Michael A2012, on Flickr
    on the back of the label it says SILK weighted to 30% and RAYON, All Wool Lined.

    Enough for now. I left a bunch of skinnies on the rack, maybe when they are half price I'll pick up a few,

    Thanks Matt. There are a few in here I really like, and a lot of old style lightweight constructions.

    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.
