Blue with Red and White Geometrics

It's hard to believe I last posted a new tie back in September. I've been way too busy during the Christmas season to even think about scanning and posting any ties, but September? That's many moons ago. Oh well. We do what we can.

Here's another fairly ordinary workaday tie from the forties. Solid navy blue background with red diamonds in a diamond shaped pattern, plus more diamonds outlined in white. The fabric is silk, according to the label (visible in the scan), but the tie has no fancy brocade imbedded in the fabric. No, what you see is pretty much what you get.

I have more ties to post, so I hope I can find time to do so a little more regularly this year, but only time will tell.

HAPPY NEW YEAR to anyone reading this blog! And to anyone who enjoys collecting and/or wearing ties.

What a great tie. I am learning so much about vintage ties from your blog. I hope you will get a chance to post more. It's better than any book I've found!
