A visual one this time. My other half/chap/fellah/him indoors/he who must be ignored (what do you call your partner in crime when you’re my age? He’s 48, for crying out loud – ‘boyfriend’ just makes my teeth melt…) is a mildly obsessional collector of vintage ties. His are mostly from the 1950s, and with getting on for 100 of these mini works of art sitting in the dark in the wardrobe, I decided to pull out a few at random and bring them into the light.
I tried to do some research but failed to find much, so in the highly unlikely event of this blog sparking in you a sudden and massive interest in vintage ties, then this is probably the book you need, and the one from which I stole the genius blog title. Thankyou, Michael J. Goldberg. The book’s available from Amazon US.
So without any further ado, I give you: the ties! (Well, a very small selection of them anyway…)
