GROUPS A to E: NOS Ties from Finney Wood

I'm delighted to be able to pass on today a whole slew of beautiful NOS (new, old stock) ties from the now-defunct Trad clothier Finney Wood's of the C17th Quaker town Haddonfield, NJ.

Located on a street laid out almost three centuries, Finney Wood's was a classic American clothier, serving the conservative and wealthy population of a town whose biggest controversy in recent years was a house painted purple. Finney Wood himself played football in high scool with Al Driscoll, later Governor of New Jersey, and Al often shopped at Wood's store during office. Finney Wood's closed its doors for the last time many years ago, and so I'm delighted to be able to offer these NOS ties that have recently resurfaced!

These are extremely nice ties! Almost all Made in the USA by Countess Mara, each of the Mara ties features a reinforced neck piece to ensure additional longevity. Several are made of "Sistine Satin", a Countess Mara speciality that was intended by the company to one of the rarer and more desirable fabrics for a tie to be made from; an advert from the Milwaukee Journal from 1981 prices "Sistine Satin" ties at $26, where regular silk ties from Countess Mara are priced between $19 and $2000 (in 1981! I suspect that this must be a typo!)

See the ad. here: https://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1499&dat=19811221&id=MiAiAAAAIBAJ&sjid=oX4EAAAAIBAJ&pg=5540,58535&hl=en

Several carry their original tags noting that they are Hand Tailored.

Although these are all absent their original sales tags, these are all in excellent condition unless otherwise noted.
