Take any ordinary cheap shirt from Kmarts and add a 1940's tie and you just obtained style! Tell me no one remembers Night Court? Harry the Judge had style. It is a simple matter of personality.
The designs weren't mass produced, so many designs... Literally hundreds of thousands is too low a figure. Small designers/clothing manufacturers were working for themselves. Look at how many suit labels there are! And only 3 big labels: Gentry, Richmond, Kuppenheimer. Same with ties and uniqueness not only was in the design but the label. Check out some of the label designs I have shown here. Bigger companys: Art Vogue, Van Heusen, Penney's, Haband, would buy the design or simply reproduce it without trademark protection. I may have some bragging rights when I say I have maybe five hundred 40's-50's ties. If it ain't love!!!

So why were the ties short between 120-135 inches on the average maybe 125 in. yet 4 inches wide? Will you believe me and not ask me to measure every tie because you want 145 inch tie from the 40's? Because our fellas back then wore suit jackets! The needed to come out and cover the space when buttoned. Neat little fact.
