Modern Retro Ties in Black

My daughter and her finance have asked me to make some custom skinny ties for the groom and groomsmen (and woman) at their wedding. They wanted a solid black tie that looked like a '50's skinny tie.

But being me, I couldn't resist trying a little decorative stitching on my prototype tie!

However, I did send this sample tie for final approval! If they want plain, I'm happy to make them that way.

I like the way the stitched version turned out though, so I might have to make some more to sell at our Inn.

I use to sell these Crazy Ties at street fairs in California and they did fairly well, but I must have had over 40 ties leftover when we moved here. They have been steadily selling at the inn and I have to restock!

One of our artist instructors, David Taylor of Australia, has specifically requested another tie when he teaches here next year. He wears them to his exhibit openings and when accepting awards!
