Before I begin let me say, hello Ladies and Gentlemen! It's an honor to meet everybody. I'm a 23 year old newbie to the whole vintage community. I was wondering if anyone could enlighten me on what you would call the tie (if it can even be called that) Jeremy Brett always wore when he played Sherlock Holmes for Granada Television. Although before the "golden age" proper I wonder what's the story behind this simple Victorian tie. It seems to me to simply be a piece of silk tied around his neck. Or perhaps it is a type of bow tie, that I am simply ignorant? Here are some pictures for those of you who have not seen the series.
