  1. Hi, I purchased a box of old ties from an estate sale this morning. Most are wrapped in original packaging which read Long Fellow made by The Slidewell Neckwear co. 583 Broadway New York. It also has a paper label attached to the bag of tie which reads Broadway’s Latest. Any information would be very appreciated. Thanks in advance.. Dorothy

  2. Hi Debbie. I am doing costumes for a play set in the 1930s. One character wears a bow tie. Will we have to tie this properly? How do you do it? When did ready tied bow ties become available? Could we get away with one of those?
