It’s amazing how many designs were featured on ties, just in the ’30s and ’40s. Thousands upon thousands. Here’s one with a flyfishing theme that I found in Steinbach, Manitoba.
The real deal- a big ’30s Dobbs western sold by Desmond’s of California. No interest when I sold this one- ended up losing money on it. Everyone wants a “Stetson” and are willing to pay big for the brand name. People will pay big for Dobbs fedoras, but they just didn’t become iconic in the western market in the same way.
