    Ha- Maureen - Those are my husband's! Every once in a while I will ask him to cull some out for me to sell and he manages to find maybe 2 or 3. We need to find a better way to display them.

    I'm hooked on MS's wolf in men's clothing....

    We have collected ties for many years.
    Amanda, that wolf has personal meaning to my husband.

    Here is a nice little hand painted group:

    I cannot believe I forgot this one - which is probably my favorite tie. I haven't parted with this one yet!

    BUGS!!! Tie is by Hollyvogue (made in CA naturally :)

    This would make a fantastic online exhibition. I have a few but almost none are photographed. However, I found these photoprint Western themed ones from the 1940s recently:

    Jonathan - whenever you are ready to part with those, just say the word. Fantastic!!

    I would like to see this thread go on forever!

    A fabulous selection on this thread. I love all the hand-painted ones. I used to have one of the Ralph Marlin fish ties but I think I neglected to photograph it before giving it to a friend as a birthday gift.
    Jauntyrooster, great luck at the Salvation Army - I've never found anything like that at my local Salvation Army shop but I'll keep looking! Staff at myy local one are reasonably careful with the pricing guns anyway, and only put them through the labels, not the main fabric. I was sad to see the mail casualty. Can anything be done to repair it?
    Mine are somewhat underwhelming by comparison, but here are a few (I don't think any cost me more than £1 each):

    Paisley print Holliday & Brown tie

    Purple velvet bow tie which I gave to my son, who lent it to my niece

    L-R: Christian Dior, Hermes and JoS. A. Bank silk ties and a Trevira (polyester fabric) tie
