Things you find in an old card board box

My parents recently left me an old card board box that used to belong to my fathers uncle. It turned out this box contained a number of old ties that had belonged to him and had been both for daily use as well as some for more formal events.

When designing ties I rarely have the intention of creating retro-styled ties, but more often than not, the results are exactly that. Some designs was recently reviewed by a few older ladies (in their 70s). They noted that most of our tie designs could easily have been in their husbands or fathers wardrobes back in the 50's or 60's.

Here are the box and a few of the beautiful old ties I was lucky enough to inherit:
