NYC Subway Silk Necktie
NYC Subway Silk Necktie. We have faithfully reconstructed these early pieces of New York City transit history from tattered originals.
Our transit destination illustrations are painstakingly adapted from original 1930s-1940s New York City subway destination roll signs. We have purchased original, authentic, 10-40 foot long vintage rolls, photographed, joined and made large-format transparencies and silkscreens for each route name. All processes are done right in house, in our Detroit studio located in Historic Eastern Market! Although we live in Detroit now, Bethany the designer grew up riding Metro North trains and NYC subways and still has much love for the east coast!
Perfect for newcomers, ex-pats, fans from afar and long-time New York City dwellers alike.
*Please note there is some translucency in the platinum printing on black - to be faithful to the appearance of the original sign.
This print extends high up on the tie, approx. 19" (46 cm) from the bottom point for the standard width, about 15" up for the narrow.
Make this design uniquely yours by choosing custom ink and fabric colors.
