Speaking of flea market finds, nearly two years ago I wrote about these Bergdorf Goodman ties I purchased at an antique market in New Hope, Pennsylvania. I had forgotten about them as my neckwear focus has been more on bow ties lately, but rediscovered them while working on shifting my wardrobe this weekend from warm weather to cold weather (don't you love the discoveries you make while doing the shift?). From what I can tell they were hand painted from the 1940's or 1950's. Aren't they unusual? I've never seen anything like them.
