Adorn Your Neck with Something S’Wonderful

This post was written by Lindy Dandy.

I’ve been all about bow ties for the past year (and that love will not falter), but after seeing the cover of The Boilermaker Jazz Band’s newest CD – Nice Work If You Can Get It, I was reminded of the fun of regular ol’ ties.

Nice Work If You Can Get It - The Boilermaker Jazz Band

See all those ties? That's just a small part of Paul Cosentino's (of the BMJB) tie collection. The man always looks good.

You may not be able to play the clarinet like Paul, but you can get in on the snazzy tie action. Here are a couple auctions:

DEADSTOCK VINTAGE 1951 CUTTER CRAVAT NECK TIES ~ 5 NEW!

5 vintage Cutter Cravat ties, starting at $20 (click the photo for the auction)

LOT OF 4 VINTAGE 1940S MENS NECK TIES........PALM TREE

4 more printed ties, starting at $9.99 (click the photo for the auction)

eBay is THE place to find lots of ties at reasonable prices. Many printed vintage bow ties are made of rayon (synthetic silk), so they’re not often of the highest quality, so keep that in mind. With a bit of luck and vigilant searching, you can find some awesome deco ties made out of silk.

By the way, do check out the Boilermaker Jazz Band’s newest CD (linked above). 19 rock solid tracks of extremely danceable tunes (They recorded Pure Imagination!)

Happy hunting and I’ll see you on the dance floor!
