Vintage early 1960s De Carlo green-and-black artificial sharkskin skinny tie features machine-embroidered designs of gold fleur-de-lys on an emerald green “coat of arms”.
The rich fabric, narrow width, and heraldic designs are all typical of late 50s and early 60s neckwear. No tag provides content, but I believe the crisp, shimmery fabric to be the early 60s rayon-acetate sharkskin widely used in garments such as mens’ slacks and suits.
Tipped in white satin, the tie is labelled “Standard of Excellence by De Carlo”. Both the RN number on the tie and the “De Carlo” trademark can be traced to the M. Aron Corporation, a neckwear manufacturing giant founded in the 1930s. They began to produce their “De Carlo” line of bow ties and four-in-hands c. 1961.
Measuring 53” long and 2.75” wide, this handsome tie is in excellent condition.
