I am so sorry I listed Chipp as I did, for you indeed live on, and I love your ties. I do, however, miss the store and the clothing terribly much.The original Chipp "Brick and Morter" which was located at 14East 44th ST closed when I sold the building. ( A gentleman walked up to me one day and said he had a client who would pay me X for our building. I said you just bought a building.) We than continued making custom and MTM clothing as Winston Tailors. The combination of my age and the Covid shutdown brought Winston Tailors to a close this year.
Chipp Neckwear, which is a separate LLC, continues. We still make our ties , which can be seen on our web site - chippneckwear.com - in NYC.
Quick, edit your post before Peak sees you calling it a stripe!Just picked up another Talbott tie from Goodwill -- heavy silk, regimental stripe, and with bright colours. It looks like a seven-fold tie, although it does not state that. The label says Made in Monterey, CA, so this must be from the earlier period.
LOL, but I don't see the need.Quick, edit your post before Peak sees you calling it a stripe!
So, TKI, what was your concern -- the first one I listed above or the second?
According to Peak:
"A repp tie isn't striped.
A stripe runs up and down.
Running left to right it's a band.
Diagonally, as on a repp tie, it's a bend, running dexter to sinister.

TKI has a memory for the important stuff. It's bends, not stripes. As in heraldic. Stripes run up and down. Bends run diagonal, dexter or sinister. Get with it.LOL, but I don't see the need.
Why is it heraldry? Coats of arms aren't identical to regimental colours. Besides, practically everyone, other than you, Peaks, calls it stripes when it comes to neckties. Common usage should trump other usages, don't you think? Shall we stop calling trousers pants? Or button down shirts polo shirts (as BB originally called them)?TKI has a memory for the important stuff. It's bends, not stripes. As in heraldic. Stripes run up and down.

Generally speaking, a band, whether in clothing, art, architecture, etc., runs horozontal. A stripe, vertical. A rugby shirt has bands of alternating colors, not stripes. The traditional seersucker jacket has stripes of blue and white, not bands. A repp tie has neither, it has bends, diagonal lines running either right (dexter) to left (sinister) or the opposite. As viewed by the wearer of the tie, the same as in anatomical descriptions. As someone here recently said, probably me, get with it. I don't wanna keep instructing you people in this.Not sure where these definitions come from, but they are certainly what one might call anal-retentive. I'm sure Peaks can cite the appropriate sartorial references, LOL. In any case, I don't subscribe to such definitions, so I'll continue calling them stripes.
BTW, Does he mean band when he says bend? Also a band can run in any direction, can't it ? Top to bottom, left to right, diagonally, etc.
