Vintage 1950s Brown & Grey Square Bottom Knit Necktie Initial “A”

Sporting the initial "A", this vintage late 50s knit necktie colorblocked in brown, grey, and yellow reflects the trend late in the decade toward narrower widths as well as the vogue for square bottomed ties.

Knit ties began their career as on-trend neckwear early in the 20th century; a 1922 newspaper article (having first distinguished them from "the old-fashioned ones knit by grandmother, great-aunt Mirandy, or any other female relation" by establishing their new-fangled machine-made credentials) reported that they were the necktie most in demand at the time. Though they were knit of silk in the 1920s, by 1930 rayon examples had made their debut (costing 19 cents) and became the more common yarn used as knit ties continued to crop up decade after decade. I believe the tie being offered here is a rayon example; its length and design point to a 1950s vintage.

Measuring 52" long and 2 ½" across the blade, the tie has no labels of any kind and is in excellent condition.
