Green Geometrics

Here's a fairly ordinary forties era tie from my collection. 100% silk fabric (according to a label), but other than that, not very fancy or special. Why do I say that? Because the fabric is fairly thin, and has no brocade patterns woven into it. This was probably a fairly inexpensive tie in its day.

The tie has two labels, which in this case (somewhat unusually) are sewn into the back of the large end of the tie, rather than the small end, which is more common.

One label reads:

The Men's Store
Carson Pirie
Scott & Co.

The other label simply reads "All Silk"
