Four-In-One Neckties

These ties are pretty much always made of wool, and usually in tartans. They were a popular way to get 4 different ties in different colourways, while only having to buy 1 tie. Apparently they were especially popular during WWII with fabric rationing and scarcity of cash for clothing. These three are British examples, probably dating to the early 1940s.
