Is anyone here aware of the vintage Italian brand: Son & Man *Arbiter*

All I know is that they are brand that existed in the past, perhaps prior to the 1960s.. I can't seem to find any info out there about them.

Anyone have some insight?

Still searching for some info on this brand. If anyone knows an approximate year, that would be helpful.

Here's a few photos. The ties look much better in person than they do in the pictures. I would be interested in seeing other ties from Son & Man *Arbiter*, they seem to have had quite a unique style.

I obtained it from a relative with a few other ties, who originally got it in Italy long ago. The only two instances on the net that I could find were an auction site (artifact.com):

and someone a couple months back sold a men's scarf from Son & Man *Arbiter* on ebay.

That's it.. Would be nice to know a history of the company.

Could be an old shop... the ties may have been made by another company. Via Condotti 84 is the street address, in case you didn't figure that out.

Good point.. I figured it was some sort of address. Maybe that can lead to some more info.

Was also able to find this website which had another tie by them.
