Tootal Sports Quality – Football

A wonderful tie. Tootal had a whole series of these ties, depicting scenes from different sports. When I first heard about them i assumed they were ties for children, but they are in fact full length adult ties. (Children’s ones incidentally, were “Boys Quality”.) Were these for wearing when off to watch sport? That would be quite strange, but I can’t think of another good reason for a man in such repressed times wearing such a jaunty tie. I will note that not all of them feature sports themes – many in fact are just normal Tootal ties but made of a slightly different fabric from the standard.
