This invention relates to neckties of the type
in which a knot is formed and portions of the tie
are caused to slide with respect to one another
in adapting the tie to the neck of the wearer.
An example of such ties is the so-called “four
One of the features of the present invention
is the provision of a tie structure by which a knot
may be formed, and thereafter the tie may be
put on and taken off without disassembly of the
knot, and without creasing or rumpling visible
portions of the tie.
Another feature ofthe invention resides in the
construction and arrangement of parts whereby
strength and convenience are assured.
With these and other features as objects in
view, as will appear in the course of the follow
ing specification and claims, illustrativev forms
of practicing the invention are set out on the
accornpanying drawing, in which:
Fig. 1 is a View of the tie in the assembled
condition in which it is worn.

views of fragments of tie portions, showing 'one
. manner of assembling and securing the parts.

greater than the thickness of the adjacent parts
of such sections.
One manner of constructing a tie of thistype
is íllustrated in Figs. 2, 3 and 4.
`rIn Fig. 2, the exposed portion of the tie is illus- 5
trated as formed of fabric which is folded an'd
sewed to form a tube |5, the sewing being ac
complished while the fabric is inside-out. A re
enforcing strip IS, shorter than the length of
the section to be'formed by the fabric tube |5 1'0
but of su?icient length so that a pulling of the
section, during the forming of the knot or. the
adjustment of the tie in the collar will be trans
mitted' along the reinforcing or stiffening strip,
is formed of burlap or like material capable of 1`5
resisting stretching. A fabric loop H is passed
through one. section 'of the detachable fastening
means E2 and its ends brought down upon the
end of the reenforcing member 15, and secured
?xe'dly thereto as by the stitching |8. The fab- 20'
ric tubing ` 15 is now'slipped over the detachable
securing means |2 so that it laps onto the loop
ll and is then secured thereto (Fig. 3) by the
further stitching |9. The fabric tube |5 is now
reversed orV turned right-side-out, as indicated 25
by thedotted lines 15x in Fig. 3, until the de

It` is preferred to complete the ?nish of the
article, adjacent the detachable securing means, 30
Fig. 6 is va substantially horizontal view of the
30 knot, in'dicating the relationship of the succes
sive layers of material.
Fig. 7 is a fragmentary view corresponding to
Fig. 4, of a modified manner of assembling the
by a further line of stitches 20 which are ap- r
plied after the parts have been brought into the
position of Fig. 4.
As shown in Fig. 1, the tie assembly'is com
prised of two sections, one of which may be
'called the knot-forming section K while the
other may be called the slip section S. Each of
these sections includes a portion lülc, 10s intend
40 ed to pass around Va part of the neck of the
wearer, and each also includes a drop or tag
section lllc, I Is which falls, in the usual manner
of a four-in-hand tie, downward from the knot
formed at the wearer's throat. It is usually pre
45 ferred
to have the tag section Illc wider than
the section I Is, so that it substantially covers and
conceals the other while worn.
At the ends of the neck sections I?lc, IOs, these
50 are provided with detachable connections |2
which are íllustrated as being of hook-and-eye
type, and are preferably formed of non-corrosive
sheet metal and to have a width not greater than
the adjacent ends of the sections lok, |0s, and
having a thickness which is not substantially
It will be understoo'd that the two sections
may be formed in the same general manner, ex
cept that one section receives-the eye portion IZ'e
of 'the` íllustrated detachable securing means;
wh?ile the other section receives the hook portion
It is preferred to vend the ties with the knots 40
preformed therein, as a particular form of knot
has been found advantageous in permitting the
proper slipping and adjustment of the sections
While being applied around the neck. This knot
is íllustrated in Figs. 1, 5 and 6. To form it, the 45
neck section IOs of the slip portion of the neck
tie is held substantially straight, and the knot
portion of the tie is passed around it, to form a
?rst turn 26k, and then passed a second time
around the turn 20k already formed to provide 50
the exposed facing layer 2|7c, and then brought
beneath and behind the section His; and then
over this section and downward in front of the
slip portion S, so that the upper portion of the
tag end | lk which is present within the layers 55
20k, 21k embraces or substantially surrounds
(Fig. 6) the slip portion of the tie, within the
knot, while the tag end lllc is brought downward
in the usual manner. The portion of the knot
Ul section Ilk which is located within the knot
layers 26k, 2|7c, is then conformed so that it ?ts
smoothly around the slip section within the said
layers, and then the parts are drawn tight to
give a form to the knot as indicated in Fig. 1.
This positioning of the wider knot section lllc
to embrace the slip section permits easy slippage
of the parts relative to one another during ad
justment, and avoids the use of such stresses as
would wrinkle or distort the knot; and Vyet as
sures a su?lciency of friction to prevent acci
dental slippage at the knot while the tie is being
In the modified form of constructionV shown in
Fig. '7, the loop l'lm is placed externally over the
20 fabric tubing E5 while the latter is right-side-out,
and surrounds the reenforcing member |6. The
parts are then secured by stitches 18m which
fixedly connect the loop l'?-'m with the reenforc
ing member E5, so that the stresses during ad-l
justment of the tie are transmitted through the
reenforcing member, as before, without strain
ing and causing puckering or wrinkling in the
outer tubular fabric section l5.
It will be noted that the form of Fíg. '7 may be
30 made by Cutting a normal four-in-hand tie and
applying the loops Hm to the ends thereof.
The assembled tie can be put on and worn
with a soft collar by raising the collar band and
passing the sections His, Iük: around the neck and
engaging the detachable securing means |2 at the
back of the neck. The collar band is then turned
down and adjusted to proper position; and by a
light upward pressure upon the knot and a
downward pull on the tag end i IS, the proper ad
40 ;Eustment of length is e?ected, and likewise a dis
placement of the knot to one side or the other
will properly center it at the break of the collar.
The tie may be removed by pulling the knot
downward to afford slack in the neck section,
45 whereupon the detachable securing means IZ may
be separated and the tie removed. It will be noted
that it is unnecessary to release the knot for this
If the tie becomes soiled, however, it is possible
50 to open the knot and clean the tie, and then re
the reenforcing member may be dispensed with
if the fabric itself is resistant to stretching.
It is obvious that further changes may be made
in the practice of the invention without depart
ing from the scope of the appended claims.
I claim:
1. A necktie comprising two Sections, each of
which is comprised externally of a tubular struc
ture'of dress fabric and has a non-stretching in
ternal reinforcing member, one said section be 10
ing constructed and arranged to be looped around
the other for forming the tie knot and for per
mitting the other to slide relativelyA in the knot,
detachable connecting means for joining the sec
tions, the dress fabric tubes being turned inward 15
at the connectable ends of the Sections and the
connecting means including flexible securing
members which passrwithin said inturned por
tions of the fabric, and means for each section
for ?xedly securing the fabric, reinforcing mem 20
ber and securing member together, said internal
reinforcing members extending from the detach
able connecting means toward the end of the cor
responding section for a distance su?icient to .ex
tend through the knot and sliding portions and 25
permit engagement thereof when the dress fabric
tubes are grasped for exerting pulls'along the
lengths of the sections, whereby the reinforcing
members are effective to prevent stresses in the
dress fabric material.
2. As an article of manufacture, a pre-tied
necktie comprising first and second Sections hav
ing external dress fabric members of tubular
form, said Sections each including an internal
stiffening member for resisting stretching of the 35
section during pulls therealong, each section hav
ing'tying and neck portions, interengaging de
tachable fastening means at the ends of the neck
portions for transferring pulls between the sec
tions without stretching when said means are en
incident to effecting release or connection of said
detachable fastening means and the adjustment
of the knot on the wearer's collar, said stiffening
members being ?xedly connected to the fastening
means and'extending from the fastening means
form the knot either before applying the tie, or
upon the neck of the wearer after the detachable
securing means have been previously engaged.
It will be noted that the tie Vmay be made of
