This invention relates to neckties and more
particularly to novel constructions whereby a
necktie incorporating the invention may be tied

It is an object of the invention to provide a
necktie which may be worn with either AofV its
sides in front and wherein the structure of the
tie is such that in use it gives substantially the
same appearance as a conventional necktie. An
other object of the 'invention is to provide a tie
of i a tubular sort wherein the longitudinal folds
forming the side edges of the tie may be located
in the tie at the option of the wearer. .A still
further object of the invention'V is the provision'
of a necktie capable of presenting a number of

wherein a seam 38 is recessed at the broad end
of the tie by virtue of fold portions 36 (see also
the tie is left, open at each end (see Figure l0) .
Thus, the longitudinal folds may be impressed

Figures 4_7 present a modiiication ofthe tie `
illustrated in Figures 1-3. Similar parts are
indicated by corresponding reference characters
but with the addition to the reference charac
ters of an “a.” This modified necktie is charac
terized by the fact that its pleat 40a extends
upwardly from the bottom of the broad end, as
illustrated in -Figure 4, only to a limited point,
at which point seam 38a assumes a more con
ventional position adjacent the extreme outer
edges of the tie. The typev of tie illustrated in
Figures 4-7 has advantage `in some instances,
depending somewhat upon the types of fabrics
used, vin that Vpleatidllct stops immediately below
into the tie with the longitudinal seams of the
10 twoftie surface ‘ pieces either at the two longi
tudinal edges, asillustrated in Figure 8, or cen
trally located between the two edges, as illus
trated in Figure 9, or bearing some other rela
tionship with respect to the sides of the tie.
Hence the tie may be used to present a variety
of configurations under the control of the wearer.
It is to be kept in mind that the drawings
herein are purely by way of exempliñcation and
as such are necessarily more or less diagram
matic. As several additional embodiments may
be made of the above invention without depart
ing from the scope thereof, it is to be under
stood that all matter herein set forth or shown
in the accompanying drawings is to be inter
pretedV as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.
A four-in-hand necktie of the character de
scribed comprising dissirnilarly surfaced pieces of>
necktie material secured together along their
the portion which .is used in forming the knot
when the tie is tied. And thus, any possi-ble in 30 edges to form a tube-like necktie of conventional
terference frornpleat 40a duringr the tying oper
ation is eliminated.
. Figures 8-11 illustrate a further embodiment
of the invention wherein similar reference char
acters indicate Corresponding parts found in the
embodiment of Figures 1_3 but with the addi
tion of a “b.”
The necktie has a tubular-like
propertyextending from one end to the other.
For example, at neck portion 26D the two tie
surface pieces are not sewed to one another
other than by means of seam 38D. In addition,
each end of the tie is characterized `by the fac-t
length and width, said tube-like necktie -being
left open at each end whereby the tie may be
flattened along any two opposing longitudinally
running fold lines, and each open end being
, formed by a finished edge which runs endlessly
therearound approximately perpendicular to the
lengthwise direction of the necktie whereby the
ends‘of the neclitieV present a neat appearance
irrespective of the location of the longitudinally
running fold lines.
