Timothy Leary tie question

I've being trying to figure out what kind of tie Tim is wearing on this picture. At first I was sure that it was a knit tie, but when I started to search around for one they didn't seem to match up, so now I don't have a clue what kinda tie he's wearing. Any help?

Thanks.

Re: Timothy Leary tie question

That's a great shot. Think its just a slim wool tie with a standard end?

You still wanna sell me your tab collar?

Yeah, Tim looked good in the early 60s (minus the hair..). I have some photos of him in the Cool Pic thread.

ZarJazz: Nope, I haven't! What's it called, since I assume that there are several out there.

Tommy: As soon as I find a new tab collar I will ship mine to you! Promise.

WM: Thanks!

And yes, without doubt one good looking jacket. Slim lapels?

Reminds me of Johnny Dolphin, the poet, ecologist and more who is pictured in an herringbone sack jacket in Tangiers with Terry Taylor (50s Soho Modernist, author) in 1961.

It was a while since I last read that book but I'm sure it was called Flashbacks Sancho.

for the tie in the first pic? 

check this one out, 70/30 wool/silk, made in the USA, not too wide, and look at the weave .....

Looks to be a wool challis tie, but I could be wrong.

Re: Timothy Leary tie question

That's a great shot of Leary! I just picked up Paul Krassner's (The Realist, 1958-1974; wiki link) outrageous 17-page beat republished in the 80's from an old magazine spread entitled, "My Acid Trip with Groucho Marx". I'll photograph and upload the pages in this thread later this afternoon, I think you'll all dig it. smile

The tie looks like it might've been a tightly woven bouclé knit of some sort & très hip with that grey herringbone sack!

Re: Timothy Leary tie question

Thanks for that Oli! Read it last night, but I have to read it again. How much acid did Paul take? Haha.

stanshall: that tie looked really nice, but shouldn't it be slimmer? I only ask since from what I've gained when wearing a tab-collar the tie should be slim.

read Krassner's autobiography Confessions of a Raving, Unconfined Nut on a plane to SF in the '80s, enjoyed it ......

2.5" at its widest, much narrower at the collar Sancho ... should work fine ... picked it because the weave matched the Tim pic at the top

found a nice pic of Tim in seersucker bathing suit, will post it soon

my LA brothers met and hung out with Tim a bit in the late '80s/early '90s ......

Re: Timothy Leary tie question

Nice, now I have something too work with! Too bad that it says "May not ship to Sweden" (as usual...)

I have to contact the seller and ask him, because it looked really nice! Now I just I have to get that GREAT-looking tweed.

Really? How was he, I expect that he didn't wear any of that nice clothes he rocked in the 60s....

Re: Timothy Leary tie question

I have to resurrect this thread: but 'm searching for a knit tie and from what I've seen (and read) the knit tie must be a bit more slim then regular ties. I found one on Kamakuras site, but priceing at $69 I to look for other options. The other thing about the Kamakura ones was that the width was 8 cm (which is about 3") and I don't know what the golden rule says, but isn't 3" a bit too big for a knit tie?

Re: Timothy Leary tie question

Sancho, depends on the look you want. Knit ties are chunky... they can be really chunky (think Redford in All The President's Men)...

https://s26.postimg.org/5364lq5e1/Screen_Shot_2017-10-02_at_08.30.03.png

...or less so, but you're always getting a chunky look (especially with that squared off end). So it comes down to personal preference in my opinion - what width do *you* like best?

The knit tie I most often wear is about 2 inches across but it's thick, I'll post a pic here for you later today 👌🏼

Sometimes you can find great vintage knit ties on eBay or Etsy if you're interested in going that route. Rooster is my gold standard. $69 is pretty pricey for a tie that will look just as good bought secondhand...

Re: Timothy Leary tie question

Rooster was the brand I was searching for! Thanks. I think that 2" will be great.
