Old Hat

This picture is from the early 1900's and shows a man in a suit and tie, with a nice hat. I notice he is wearing a necktie not unlike ties of today. I wonder when this type of necktie became popular. Also, I notice his eyeglasses do not have the little arms that go back over the ears.

  1. Those type of glasses are called pince-nez. I always liked that name and the glasses. I tried them on(antique shops) and I guess I have the wrong kind of nose or something. That hat I could definitely wear.

  2. And "pince nez" literally means "pinch nose." Jim

  3. Interesting. Except for the width of the lapel and ribbon around his hat, and his lack of glasses bows, he looks very modern.

  8. It seems the necktie, as we know
    it today, was designed by Jesse
    Langsdorf, a New York tie maker in
    1926.

    I was surprised, as I thought it
    would have been earlier.
