Personality Around the Neck

Personality Around the Neck

I recently came across a nice stash of men's neckties. It was as if I discovered someone's personality through the decades. There are ties from the 1930s, 40s, 50s, and 60s.

 

What is so fantastic about a necktie is that it is an easy way to inject personality into your wardrobe. Be it a wedding, work, church, or a night on the town the eye is often drawn to that bit of fabric hanging around one's neck.

Here is a sampling of some of those ties. I love the 40s for their rayon and silk ties, bold colors and designs as well as their wide profile. The 50s continued this tradition in the early part of the decade, but then began to introduce skinnier ties with a more subdued palate. The 1960s were fraught with the skinny tie and used materials such as acetate and polyester making ties more durable for the everyday. Often these ties from the 60s had smatterings of embroidered designs such as polka-dots, flour-de-lis, and crests.

Ties often make the perfect gift, so, check out my shop and pick out a tie for that special person in your life and give them not only a piece of history but a little bit of fabric to express their personality.
