|A very beautiful Marilyn Monroe buying some ties for a very lucky guy|
She was not the only lady buying neckties although she certainly was not easily forgotten in this men's shop. A half a century ago women loved buying ties for their men. that has not changed except far less men wear ties now.
It was noted at the turn of the last century that women were purchasing ties for their husbands, boyfriends, bosses, and other men in their lives. This revelation gave way to neckties that were designed in colorful and flashy patterns.
Traditional rep striped ties and conservative small medallion patterns were soon replaced on the shelves and tie racks of department stores and men's shops with neckties illustrating polka dots and abstract patterns. Eventually towards the end of the century novelty ties illustrating fine art, sports themes, music notes, Spiderman and Mickey Mouse became popular with more adventurous men.
With the relaxed dress codes at work many of the coolest novelty neckties became collector items as complete lines were discontinued or worse - many designers and manufacturers closed their doors. Check out our collection of collector novelty ties at Nice Tie Store We have collections of conversation ties that include Star Wars, Super Heroes, Disney, Looney Tunes, Endangered Species and much more.
