Just when I thought I had enough obscure emblematic ties you go and put this up. I will be keeping eyes open. I did see a beefeater one once and one with fighting cocks although I do not think that one was a Brooks. As an aside I believe Brooks was offering ties that were 4 inches at the time along with the more traditional width.
