Madras plaid was a brilliant fabric trend in the 1960s. Often used for shirts and dresses and shorts, this is the first time we’ve seen a bow tie made of it!
Woven with classic colors of black, olive green, maroon and cream in an uneven plaid.
This is adjustable, measuring 30” at it’s shortest, up to 35” at it’s longest.
So, this is labeled, “The Adapta” Welsh, Margetson & Co. London, England
This is skinny measuring only 1.25” wide at the ends and even narrower at the center (makes it easier to tie) at .75” wide.
As cool as it is tied, it also can be worn David Bowie style, laying around the neck, or, in the 1980s we used to wear bow ties as hair bands! we could adjust them to fit to our head size, then had plenty of room to tie them (in a knot) to stay on.
