Everyone carry on posting garish paisleys.
There is a rumor going around that Connemara is going into the tie business and will be acquiring the assets of Carlo Franco to sell at prices that will be randomly set.

I thought Conne was going door to door hawking Seaman & Stearn to pay off his plane ticket.

He was but it turned into a fruitless endeavor as the potential customers did not see the value of S&S when their regular toilet paper was doing the job better and cheaper.

A few more examples from another fan of Paisley.


Darn ... I'd better dust those keys next time I use the harpsichord as a backdrop.

The inventor, Isidore Wolfson, also applied for an update to the first patent in 1926, which he states was an improvement upon it. So this is likely a mid-1920s tie.
It is hard to believe one could improve on a classic like this. How does it tie up?

Leave it to AlanC to remember the bow ties ...

I suppose I'm forever excluded from being trad having forgotten them myself.

But ... just to add a few more paisley ties ...

For a second I thought that was a suit. Then I saw the plain trousers. Didnt someone score a fabric similar to this at the paul stuart sale? Now that I see your jacket, that fabric would have made a smashing suit.

That is very nice AlanC. I would like that with a summer sports jacket too, maybe on a pink shirt. That was a good find, they dont make light hearted prints like that in non shiny materials anymore.
