44) Resilio regimental. Absolutely beautiful! 3". A lovely tie! Excellent condition. Just $13.


45) VINTAGE "Wash and Wear" tie, likely from the late 1950s. Very Good/Excellent condition. A lovely, wearable vintage item! 2". Just $12.

46) SOLD 93% Cashmere and 7% Wool tie by Polo Ralph Lauren. A lovely dark midnight blue/black tie with an Imperial purple stripe, this is in excellent condition except for a weave fault on the front that was likely there since new. Otherwise, excellent condition. Wonderfully soft! 3". Asking just $15.

47) SOLD G. Fox & Co started in 1847 in Hartford, Conn., and grew to the premier department store in the city, known for its Art Deco lower floor and the high quality of its products. It left the family hands in 1965, and in 1991 was finally phased out, being converted to Filene's. This tie is all wool, and a lovely dark red. It has a small blemish line, as shown, but this would likely come out with dry cleaning. (Dry cleaning a wool tie is perfectly fine!) This is thus in Very Good condition, and measures 3". Asking just $12.

48) The House of Emanuel Ungaro opened in Paris in 1965, and quickly established itself as force to be reckoned with in the life of Parisian haute couture. In 1973 Ungaro unveiled its first menswear life, which was received with critical acclaim. This tie likely dates from the very early years of Ungaro, when it was still a fashion house and before it turned to focusing on branded perfumes in the 1980s. It's clear from this tie Ungaro's early work was applauded; a lovely geometric tie in colours of dark brown and burnt orange, Made in Italy from 100% pure wool. Admittedly, this is a classic 1970s tie--it measures 4 1/8" at its widest!--but it's a lovely piece of fashion history. In very Good condition; it has a couple of small wear marks at the leading edge of the blade, as shown. Asking just $12, or offer.

49) CLASSIC SCOTTISH TARTAN! By Lochcarron. Stewart Dress tartan. This has a tiny hole about 3/4 way up the blade, as shown, and s just in Good condition. $9. 3 /4".

50) SOLD Lochcarron Davidson tartan. All wool, Made in Scotland. Excellent condition. 3 1/2". $15.

51) Vintage Beau Brummel tie. All wool. 3 1/4". This has a small thread snag on the front, as shown. Very Good condition. $10.

52) SOLD Another classic Lochcarron tartan! Made in Scotland. Farquharson tartan. Excellent condition. 3 1/8". Just $15.

53) Lochcarron tartan tie. All wool. Fraser Red. This has a small weave fault on the front which was there from new, and a small snag on the edge of the thin side of the blade that won't be seen when worn. Very Good condition; hence just $12. 3".

54) SOLD Pendleton tartan tie. This appears to be in excellent condition, but it has three tiny pinholes on the front. Hence, this is just $9, or FREE with two other ties! 3 3/4".

55) Roosterknit--another classic knit tie! All wool. Excellent condition, except for a very small snag on the back of the blade, which I only noticed just now and which won't be seen when worn. Sold by Bloomingdale's. Very Good/Excellent condition; 2 1/4". $12.

56) Chestnut brown wool (likely) knit tie. One small snag on the thin back blade which won't be seen when worn, hence Very Good/Excellent condition, and $9. 2 1/4".

57) ORIGINAL Vicky Davis skinny tie. Vicky Davis was one of the best-known tie designers in New York in the 1980s. She had relocated there from Michigan to pursue her passion for ties, and was extremely succesful. While many of her ties are now very dated--she specialized in "humor" ties, with fairly large pictures, and was largely responsible for making these popular--she was also the champion of "skinny" ties in revolt of the wide ties that Ralph Lauren had championed in the 1970s. The mid to late 1980s return to thin, 1950s and 1960s style ties was owed largely to the influence of Vicky.... and this is a lovely example of an original 1980s Vicky Davis knit.

Just as much at home in a vintage, Ivy, or Trad wardrobe as very loosely tied around the neck of a 1980s "casual" with his jacket sleeves pushed up to the elbows, this lovely tie is all cotton and Made in England. It features a standard V tip rather than a square tip, and a different style of weave in the V. This is in very Good/Excellent condition, and a bargain at just $15, or offer. 1 3/4".

58) Italian silk knit in black. Made in Italy. Absolutely gorgeous! Excellent condition. 2 1/2". $17.

59) BEAUTIFUL vintage "Triple" tie! At first, this tie presents as a lovely traditional wool plaid tie of the sort that would be perfect with tweed. On closer examination it transpires that while this is a lovely plaid tie, it can also be reversed, so that it can be worn as a dark loden green wool tie, also. But things get even better--this tie has been carefully crafted so that it can ALSO be worn as a nailhead tie, in black and dark forest green!

I had a very similar tie for sale some time ago, but that was simply a more common double reversible tie, rather than a triple reversible. Plus, this tie was Made in England for Trimingham's or Bermuda. 2 1/2". Excellent condition. Asking just $22, or offer, for this lovely rarity.


60) WONDERFUL Vintage Pierre Cardin cravat, in dark blue with gemetric squares in red. This was Made in France, and dates from the time before Pierre Cardin turned to licensing and diffusion lines. This is first quality, and in excellent condition except for one tiny snag, as shown. Just $16.
