An object of the invention is to provide a made up ready-to-wear necktie styled to provide a knot with a flap depending therefrom with the alter nate face sides thereof adaptable for reversible wear, and either of the same or different fabric, design or color and having a separable, lengthwise 2 The band, preferably is formed from a single piece of woven fabric material cut to the appro priate pattern outline and longitudinally folded upon itself, with the line of fold forming one edge of the band and the meeting margins of the layers hem folded inwardly and stitched together. As a working facility the folding and stitching can be performed with the reverse side of the fabric outwardly, which converts the band into tubular form and thereafter turned to bring the face side of the fabric outward. Employing a single piece of fabric and folding in forming the band, dupli cates its opposite or alternate face sides for re adjustable or extensible neckband extending from versible wear exposure, and for relatively vari the opposite sides of the top end of the knot. ating the faces, the band may be formed of strip 15 Another object is to provide a made-up ready lengths of different design, color and kinds of to-wear necktie having opposite face sides adapt fabric stitched or otherwise secured together. able for alternate Wear exposure for increased The band can also be formed of tubular woven or knitted structure or constitute a knitted single ply or ?at web strip, recognizing the mode and man 20 a resulting reduction in cost, permitting low price service and life, simple in construction and pro duced from a minimum amount of material with ner of band construction is optional and various different methods may be employed for its produc wear. tion.
