This 1970’s tie with its ombre effect and jacquard weave is an absolute stand-out. The colors graduate in tone from deep blue at the bottom of the blade, changing in shade to blue-green and then to green. The stylized floral jacquard weave adds another dimension, adding another layer of color. These colors shift in the changing light, and the result intensifies the ombre effect. The label says, “for blue, black, or gray suit, Wemlon by Wembley, washable, needs no pressing.” Wembley produced the Wemlon polyester ties from 1962 to 1979.
The tie measures 55 inches in length and is 2 ¾ inches wide at the base of the blade. It is in excellent vintage condition and is clean with no spots, stains, holes, or scents. This tie with its ombre effect and shifting colors is a very cool tie!
