Vintage B.J. Ernst Wool Ties

A customer at Casarama brought in a box of the most interesting woven wool ties. The story behind them is that the brother of the road salesman for the company was the owner of the estate and when they were cleaning it out they discovered the box of ties, left over from the 1940’s when his brother was on the road selling. The ties were manufactured by B.J.Ernst in San Francisco. Needless to say I bought the whole lot. I had them in Casarama for a while and sold a few, but the longer I looked at them and read about new woven wool ties I pulled them from the display case and decided to wear a few. I am still not sure if I want to give them up.

The following is the collection:

I let a few get away for $20 each. Should I keep them or sell them?…
