The principal object of the invention is to pro
or form the laterally extended cross wire or con
vide an integral wire form, upon which the tie
knot may be readily and artistically formed as a
“four-in-hand” neck-tie.
Another object is to provide an integral neck
tie form of metal wire or other suitable material,
around and upon which form the neck-tie may
be folded in such a way as to build up a neat and
attractive knot, and which wire form includes a
main, triangular wire frame or form correspond
ing to the downwardly tapered knot of the com
pleted neck-tie and upon which the knot of the
tie is supported, the upper and lower ends of this
form being bowed or looped outwardly for corre
posed strands or lengths 1a, connected at the
lower end thereof by the outwardly curved bight
