I adore novelty fabrics, and because I use neckties as fabric, it then follows that I love novelty designs on neckties. Finding these just makes the breath stop in my throat. I live for that feeling. Paintbrush tie I just found today at a thrift store. It is by Stringbean. Not sure how old it might be. The frosty is a handpainted design that I also found at a thrift store (for one dollar!). Was is part of a uniform? How do I clean it? I'm thinking drycleaning might melt the paint, I don't know.
Some very collectible neckties are known as peek-a-boo, where pin-ups are hidden on the underside. This one is signed and handpainted. Ebay purchase.
