Here’s a collection of neckties that span from the early ’50’s to the late ’60’s. Brand names include Wembley and others (which I’ve forgotten at the moment). Some are of silk, some of rayon blend and some of polyester.
Although the widths vary a lot from decade to decade, I don’t think that I would let that keep me from wearing the one I wanted to if I were a man. They can all look sharp and interesting or fun.
It’s not difficult to find these now. Once in a while I check for them. They even make nice belts for women’s clothing sometimes, and women did wear them as ties, too, in 1967 when the British Carnaby Street fashions were really in. You can wear a skinny one for an Annie Hall look, or whatever.
When it comes to wearing vintage fashion, anything goes . . . . . . .
