A 100% silk necktie decorated with a repeating pattern of Santa Claus bearing a sack full of gifts and white snow dots on a navy blue background. The tie measures 57" long and 3" wide at the widest point. The back of the tie has a sewn-in label that reads in faded letters "Brooks Brothers Makers All Silk Hand Made in USA of Imported Fabric." The condition is very good, with no stains, rips, holes, or flaws of any kind.
Sizing: The widest point of the tie should evenly match the widest point of a jacket's lapel when buttoned. A 58" long necktie fits most people but the width varies depending on personal style. An ultra-skinny tie is 2” wide and a classic skinny tie is 2.5” wide. A 3” wide tie is suitably modern and 3.25”-3.5” is a more traditional width (and works well for big or tall men). When tied, the bottom of the tie should hit the middle of your belt buckle.
Cleaning and Maintenance: To keep ties looking their best, remove the tie by reversing the steps taken to tie the tie. Hang ties up on a tie rack or clothes hanger to allow any wrinkles to ease out. Treat stains by blotting (not rubbing) the affected area with water or seltzer or, if it's a grease stain, talcum powder. Wait a few hours then brush off and clean with a cloth. Avoid ironing your tie. If there are wrinkles, hang it up in the bathroom while taking a shower or use a steam iron for deeper wrinkles.
