This invention relates to neckties and more
particularly to the type known as four-in-hand,
which are usually constructed with a relatively
wide flaring knot-tying portion at one end, while
the part of the tie which encircles the neck and
the other end around which the knot is tied is
relatively narrow, so that the knot is slidable on

In the drawing, a conventional four-in-hand
type necktie is illustrated having a relatively
