Chess brocade

This is my brand new blog devoted to showing off images of my vintage necktie collection. I plan to post about one tie per week. At this rate it will take several years to showcase my entire collection.

This particular tie is one of the more flashy examples I have been fortunate enough to acquire. It is fully 4 1/2 inches wide at its widest point, and has a gorgeous background brocade pattern of chess pieces, which may not be as visible as one could wish in the scanned image. This is a classic 1940's era tie at its best.
