This is possibly the best find I have had in some time. A friend of mine suggested I go back and look at Truman and so I did a google search tonight and pulled up Life Magazine from December 10th 1951. Really, truly, honestly, I believed that I was probably one of the first to make a horizontal striped bow tie, but look at the image below for 1945. I do believe that is a horizontal stripe. What a collection of ties and bow ties. I will feed of this for a few days.
