The necktie is thus ?rmly engaged or pendable in that respect.

The novel unit is also made to balance for the straight hanging of the necktie. . It is understood CH that to hang straight the necktie fold should occur directly underneath the hook pocket 13, so that the necktie will have no tendency to swing the hook in one or the other direction. The slot 19 is of su?icient depth to accommodate the neck tie in the position just mentioned, such depth being secured by forming the unit with its pro jecting rear portion l1.

' 1. A unit for suspending a necktie from a rod, nail or the like comprising a top portion in the form of a hook, a downward continuation of the hook shank, and a lateral extension of the shank unit is an article of utmost simplicity, since it 15 terminating with a return section, the latter be ing spaced with a narrow slot from the extension, can be cut, stamped or molded from one piece of and the slot tapering in its entrance from a material. Further, it does not need a special sup ‘width to slidingly receive the necktie to a con port, being easily mountable on the basic sup stricted portion wedgingly lodging the same. ports mentioned, which occur frequently in the’ home, office or place of business. Being thin, the unit can be mounted in as many places as afford room along a rod, line or wire, enabling a com paratively large number of neckties to be sus pended in one compact space. Further, the unit is independent as an article of manufacture or When packed orshipped, since it is no larger than _ shown in the drawing and can be stacked in large quantities for economy in packing or shipping. Finally, the unit requires no skill or special hane 2. The structure of claim 1, the slot being located to position the inserted necktie in ver tical alinement with the pocket in said hook. 3. The structure of claim’ 1, the turn between said extension and return section being at a point laterally beyond the bill of the hook, whereby to locate the slot to position the inserted necktie in vertical alinement with the pocket in said hook.
