Patchwork madras

Here's a tie from Structure made of actual cotton madras patchwork, a fabric normally used for Bermuda shorts. Les Wexner's Limited Brands, where Structure started out, were successful at spotting style trends and then cranking out clothes in that style quickly and cheaply. This tie must have appeared during a "preppy" boomlet. Structure changed to Express Men and was spun off from Limited Brands into Express, Inc., trading on the NYSE as EXPR, while Sears now owns the rights to the Structure brand.
