My Eyes!

The late 1940s gave rise to some of the most godawful ties in the history of menswear. Surpassed only by the 1970s (and only because they made godawful ties out risible manmade fabrics) the Bold Look era ties could get pretty garish. This is one of the worst I’ve ever seen. 5 inches (!) wide at the blade, and airbrushed green sunburst design with some sort of wing’d, or leaf-sprouting box. Who knows what the artist was smoking when generating this “masterpiece” … Made for Ohrbach’s, artist is un-named.
