Lastly, I also obtained this vintage tie from a seller up north. I had been after one of these square ended, horizontal ties for quite a while. I know there are some mixed feelings towards them, but it always reminded me of the early Michael Caine movies such as Alfie. Very casual tie that can be worn with a tweed sports coat or even a cardigan or sweater. This particular one is in shades of grey, black and brown; subtle but still standing out on it's own accord. The brand is Ernst Nizam which from what i can tell was a popular manufacturer of this particular style of neckties. The make up is of a 50/50 poly/wool mix, which leaves it with a nice body and different sheen's depending on the color. Looking forward to trying this out soon.
