Please PM with interest and offers!

NB: Unless otherwise noted, all ties are in excellent condition!


1) Reiss of New Haven emblematic; very detailed golden pheasants on a navy background. No fabric content listed, but likely poly-silk. 3 3/8". $12

2) Vintage J. Press gamebirds emblematic. Absolutely gorgeous, and perfect for tweed! From Press' The Burlington Knot line. Made in England. 3 1/4". $18.

3) Bill Robinson Bi-planes emblematic. Lovely! 3 3/4".

4) Salvatore Ferragamo, Resting Dogs. A lovely tie! made in Italy. Some rumpling to the lining, as shown, but this doesn't affect wear. 3 3/8". $15.

5) Notre Dame Fighting Irish tie. Made for ND bookstore. 3". Poly. $12.

6) Salvatore Ferragamo golfers tie. Beautiful! Made in Italy. 3 5/8". $15.

7) ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! Recent Burberry tie, featuring a small repeating pattern of the Big Ben clocktower of the Houses of Parliament.. with a hint of tartan at the small end of the blade! Made in Italy. 3 1/2". $25.

8) Vineyard Vines legal emblematic. Made for a law firm, but suitable for anyone--especially if you're not in the same locale as the lawfirm! 3 7/16. $15

11) Bull & Bear. They appear to be fighting, and the bull is winning! No maker listed, or fabric content, but likely silk-poly. 3". $10.


12) WONDERFUL J. Press Ancient Madder silk tie. "Ancient madder" is named after the dyes that are used to colour the gum-twill silk that is traditionally used to make these ties. The dyes are drawn from the common madder plant (Rubio Tinctorum--the "tinct" a nod to the plant's use as a dye base) and impart a beautiful, almost faded colouring to the silks so treated--the faded aspect of them leading to the "ancient" description of the ties thus produced. (Think here of the faded "Ancient" tartans that Lochcarron and other weavers produce.) This is a beautiful example of an ancient madder tie, being a vintage version from J. Press. Absolutely PERFECT for tweed, this gorgeous tie was made in England, and is 3 1/8". Although the keeper is off one side this will be repaired before shipping. These ties are increasingly hard to find, with madder dyes now largely being synthetic rather than real. The hand of this tie is subtley chalky, indicating that it's a real madder tie. Asking just $22, or offer.

This was sold by Wanamaker's of Philadelphia. Wanamaker's was one of the great pioneers of the Department store. In 1874 he issued the first copyrighted store advertisement, which promised a lot.... and when it turned out that Wanamaker's made good on ALL of his promises (not something that all retailers did back then!) business boomed. In 1911 Wanamaker expanded his store, and installed in it the world's second largest organ. (This organ is still in the Wanamaker's store in Philadelphia--now Macy's--and is played regularly; this is something that you should most definitely hear if you're in Philadelphia, as it's spectacular!) Wanamaker also acquired a huge brass eagle from the 1903 World's Fair, and installed it on the first floor of the store--this became a popular meeting spot, and, like the organ, is still present in what is now Macy's.

As well as being a Wanamaker's item this is made from old-school Viyella--a mix of 55% wool and 45% cotton that became the first officially branded fabric in 1894. The fabric's unusual name name is owed to the proximity of the mill owned by Wiliam Hollins & Co, its developers, to the road called Via Gellia--which owes its name to Philip Eyre Gell, the main engineer, whose family claimed descent from the Romans!

This is a lovely tie, made from a classic fabric that is no longer made. 3 1/4". It's a bargain at just $16.

47) Scottish Lambswool birdseye tie. Perfect for brown-hued tweed! 3 1/4". Vintage, and a lovely rare colourway and patterning. Just $15.

48) The Scotch House tartan tie. Pure new wool. Made in England. The Scotch House was THE shop to go to for woolens and tartan and all clothing Scots. Founded in 1839, it specialized it very upscale Scottish clothing, and held several Royal Warrants. Its flagship store was located in Knightsbridge, just across from Harrods, when this was an upper-class destination store, and this, together with the British association of Scottish clothing with upper-class country style and Royal patronage, solidified its storied reputation until its closure in 2002.

This lovely tie shows just why it was so esteemed; thick, weighty, and yet tying a beautiful knot, this is Scottish clothing at its best.... despite its more Southern origin! 3 1/4". $18.

49) Another Scotch House tartan tie! 3". $18.

50) Lochcarron tartan tie. Made in Scotland. Leslie Green. 3". $14.

51) Brooks Brothers silk tie. Wonderfully thick and slubby! This is labeled irregular, but I have no idea why. Wonderfully Donegal-esque, this would be perfect with tweed. 3". $16.

56) Vintage El Denver tie! Absolutely lovely, this has several small snags throughout, although these won't be seen when worn. Originally sold by Jackson and Moyer of Philadelphia--their label is NOT coming off, as it was affixed at an angle! This is in Good condition only, and so just $5.


57) VINTAGE Brooks Brothers classic No. 1 stripe in red; this was made for Brooksgate, the old-school younger line of Brooks (but the same quality) that was intended to be the "gateway" into Brooks Brothers loyalty! 3" Very Good condition. Just $10.

58) Austin Reed Authentic Regimental--I believe that this is the tie of the (British) Guard's Regiment! Silk was made in Italy by M. Pendleton. There is some minor rumpling in the lining of the blade, as shown, but this does not affect wear. 3 3/4". Very Good/Excellent condition. $10.

59) US Polo Association regimental. 3 3/8". Just $10.

60) Bicycles! A lovely tie--possibly a boy's? 2 7/8" by 49". No fabric content listed, but clearly all cotton. Wonderful, and just $7

92) VINTAGE "Wash and Wear" tie, likely from the late 1950s. Very Good/Excellent condition. A lovely, wearable vintage item! 2". Just $10

93) 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 $10, or offer.

94) 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".

95) Vintage Beau Brummel tie. All wool. 3 1/4". This has a small thread snag on the front, as shown. Very Good condition. $8

96) 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 $10. 3".

97) 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". $10

98) 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".

99) 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 $10, or offer. 1 3/4".
