This vintage tie features a repeating pattern of small rampant lions against a burgundy background. The lions are stitched in grey, making them stand out against the rich background. The label on the back of the blade says “Pride of England,” and a band stitched inside the neck says “Made Expressly for Alexander’s”. Another label inside the tip of the small end shows a British flag and says “Pride of England,” and inside the tag says “100% Polyester, Briar.”
This 1970’s tie measures 56 inches in length and is 3 inches across the tip of the blade. It is in excellent vintage condition. It has been professionally dry cleaned, and there are no holes, stains, or scents. The lion is often referred to as the “king of beasts,” and it is often seen in coats of arms. It traditionally symbolizes strength, courage, valor, and royalty. These symbolic qualities add an extra bit of zing to this great looking necktie.
