Paisley days

(Not much language in this.)

In a response (from me) to a comment on my June 14th posting “Most unusual ties” (about Steven Levine and his extraordinary collection of ties), I wrote:

What I have is a world-class collection of paisley and floral ties — gorgeous, rather than entertaining.

Herewith a small sampling of the paisley(esque) section, in mid-width ties (I also have skinny ties and big wide ties; I’ve lived through quite a few shifts in fashion.)

(I scanned these in and had some trouble getting an actual white background, so they aren’t sterling examples of the photographer’s craft. Be gentle.)

Earlier on this blog, a posting of 2/12/12 with paisley patterns; and one of 8/4/12 with more about the patterns and the name.
