1950’s Bow Ties

This post was written by Lindy Shopper.

There’s something about bow ties that is particularly charming, especially if they have a whimsical print or theme. My grandfather had a bow tie that he would wear every Christmas that was green with a sprig of holly on the knot. Eventually, there were enough protests from the other relatives that he stopped wearing it, but I always rooted for the Christmas bow tie.

I found a couple of eBay listings with some whimsical (seasonless), some normal, bow ties. A few of them have never been worn…so here they are, two lots of bow ties at an insanely low starting price ($4.99 and $9.99, respectively):

  1. Seriously? Clip-On ties? Ain’t you got no class/skillz?

  2. I thought they were cute. *shrug* They are clip on, but they have this nerdy narrowness that I like sometimes, that you can’t get from real bow ties.

    Also, I don’t need those skillz, I only need to know how to untie the bow tie…
