1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    1) WONDERFUL 1940s shadow design tie; this not only features the classic geometric design of a 1940s tie, but it also has a wonderfully 1940s foliage design as a shadow pattern behind this; this design can be seen when the tie is worn, faintly, but comes into its own in certain lights and angles. There is some memory in the knot area, and a very small white blemish by a single thread snag about 2/3 of the way up, hence this is in Very Good condition. It's likely rayon--silk at this time being in high demand for items such as parachutes, for obvious reasons.... 4 1/8" wide, 48 1/4" long--recall, at this time ties were worn higher, and trousers were worn higher too! Asking just $20

    2) Another WONDERFUL 1940s shadow design tie; this not only features the classic geometric design of a 1940s tie, but it also has a wonderfully 1940s foliage design as a shadow pattern behind this. This secondary design can be seen when the tie is worn, faintly, but comes into its own in certain lights and angles. There is some memory in the knot area, and a tiny pinhole on the front, hence this is in Very Good/Excellent condition. It's likely rayon. This is likely a later tie than (1), and its proportions are starting to be more modern, at 3 1/2 by 51 1/2". Asking just $20.

    3) Another WONDERFUL 1940s shadow design tie! This has a geometric design that incorporates foliage and shamrocks into it--together with its trellis shadow design in the background this is a tie that harkens back to the domestic backyard wit its order and peace, something highly desirable after the carnage of the war. The pattern on this tie continues along the whole length of the tie. It's in excellent condition, with only a small pinhole on the liner as a flaw. It's likely rayon. This was made by Green Valley Cravats, and is likely early 1940s. 4 1/2" by 49 1/2. Asking just $24.
