    I think the confusion on that may be that the last hunt was looking for multiple closure buttons. A one button jacket in this case isn't referring to just one closure button, but one front button period, like this:

    And if you're interested in the history behind it (I'm a huge nerd for this stuff) the Wikipedia entry on Scotland's Black Watch infantry unit is a cool read.

    Lol, If you cross the two, you might just have something there. That's a shawl lapel, not a peak.

    Not to pile on.....but rather just to pile on. [​IMG]How do we know those aren't polyester, since it seems 99% of the black ties are.

    I took 6 pictures of the black silk tie for evidence. It's difficult to capture: 1. Solid black front, 2. Price tag, 3. 100% silk tag, 4. Scavenger hunt id photo, 5. evidence of being at a thrift. in one photo. [​IMG]

    Funny, I thought something similar about your blackwatch photo. I could duplicate that picture in my closet.
