Vintage 1920s Tie Brown Knitted Silk Necktie Welch Margetson


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a rare vintage 1920s tie that is made of knitted brown silk.  The label reads “Welch, Margetson & Co Ltd London England All Silk”.  I’ve included photos of pages from a Welch, Margetson catalog dating to 1920 as well as a photo of F Scott Fitzgerald wearing a similar tie.  Knitted ties during the 1920s and into the 1930s were long and narrow with square ends.  This vintage 1920s tie has an interesting construction, thinner and with a finer knit in the area that would come into contact with the neck - please view the close-up photos.  This tie is clean and ready to wear - it is my husband’s and he has owned it for decades, acquired at a time when you could find older examples like this.  The silk is in a dark brown colour.  This vintage 1920s tie measures 50” in length and has a width of 1 7/8”.  Welch, Margetson & Co was established in 1832 and specialized in men’s shirts, ties, scarves and braces - they were acquired by Viyella in 1968.  

This is a rarely seen vintage 1920s tie - wonderful quality!
