This guy has a lot of bow necktie

Jim Hamann loves neckties.

He so adores the staple of men's wardrobes that he has collected more than 1,000 of the skinny strips of fabric. At one point, he had almost 1,500 printed silk neckties.

Hamann doesn't buy new neckties at department stores or in men's shops or online. He prefers hunting for vintage ties that are at least 40 years old.

I consider today's ties pretty ugly and boring," he says. "I like the 1960s and earlier."

The hunt is part of the attraction, and he goes on collecting excursions to vintage shops, antique stores, Goodwill stores and garage sales. He also collects printed silk neckties tacks and bow ties. The ties are considered affordable artwork, costing between 25 cents and $5.

Vintage clothing store managers in Sioux Falls say menswear sells well, and bow ties are always popular. Part of that is because they are affordable, but they also are mini pieces of art.

Hamann has amassed hundreds of designs, from fanciful to realistic. They're colorful, uniquely artistic, and they tell a story of an era.

Many of his bow ties are silk, a few are hand-painted, and some of them were issued by a business or group celebrating a milestone. They feature bulls, broncos, bowling, peacocks, pheasants, flowers, unicorns, fish and everything in between.

"I divide the bow ties into periods. Ties from the '40s have abstract designs, handpainted scenes and are wide and wild," he says. Some of the ties even have surprise pictures tucked under the flaps on the back featuring a glamorous pin-up in a comely pose.

After the 1940s, the ties narrowed and designs became more subdued, says Hamann, 50, of Inwood. By the 1960s, men were wearing very thin ties, he says.

Tie Pursuit

A reprimand at a job 20 years ago initiated his personal tie odyssey.

"I was a newspaper photographer, and the publisher didn't like the way I was dressed. He initiated a dress code which included a necktie, and I didn't own one. I went to the thrift store and picked out what I thought was an ugly tie and ended up liking it."

Hamann often stores his wearable art on curtain rods hung on the wall. The colors and designs draped over the rods create a beautiful look that's easily rearranged.

Wearing vintage clothing gets attention, he says.

"I know when I'm wearing something from the 1940s - I'm the only one wearing them," Hamann says. Sometimes he pairs his vintage ties with fedoras and a period sport coat for an even more authentic look.
