I found this bow tie in a second hand shop and spent the evening with tying practice! I sure will wear it on
St Andrew’s Day.

With a mens’ wear standard like dark suit and white shirt, the tie is your chance to set your mark. This is a Karl Lagerfeld from the 80’s.

The Burns Check was created for the Robert Burns 200 years celebration in 1959. In 2007 I bought the tie at Burns House in Dumfries.

This one too is from the fifties. Regal brand.
It even has a seller’s label:
“Frank Myers Mens’ Wear, Elkhart, Ind.”.

In the fifties, my uncle visited the US a couple of times and brought home amazing wide ties like the one to the left, Windsor of California Hand Painted. Then in the seventies wide ties were again in the rage. Here are three specimens, Seta Made in Italy, Cambridge probably US, and Castello Chatillon of Italy.

Tartan is popular all over the world. This tie from the sixties is made in Sweden. Cheers!
