5 Claims.
The present invention relates to improvements
in neekties and more particularly to an improved
tie which will not slip after being knotted and
Heretofore, it has been diiiicult te maintain a
neat appearance after a tie has been knotted and
adjusted because of the tendency of the knotted
part to slip down out of place. This is especially
true Where the tie is made of slippery material,
such as silk or rayon.
A previous attempt to solve this problem was
made by providing a separate metal device having
spurs which was slipped into the loop forming the
knot to be attached to the fabric by the spurs
after the knot had been almost completely made.
This proved unsatisfactory for the sharp edges
or spurs, by which the metal is attached to the

fore not visible, nor do they spoil the shape or de
tract from the appearance of the tie. They may
be smooth surfaced and therefore the tie can be
tied and untied in the ordinary manner Without
fraying or tearing the fabric.
It will be understood that, While it is prefer
able to have the obstructionsV remain on the tie
when it is not being used to avoid the danger
of misplacing or losing them, they can be removed
and replaced whenever desired, When, as shown
