The cheepness plus how worn it looks leads me to believe most people would have just threw it out when they were done with it. I doubt any thrift store would pay for it. Most thrift stores and Goodwill stores and such are required to wash any clothing they take in before reselling. At least that's the case nowadays. It may have been different back then. If it was washed wouldn't it have washed off a lot of the particles that were found on it?
I tend to agree with you re the tie always having been his own - it could be a few years old, though, possibly the property of someone who rarely wore ties or hadn't worn one in a while. Apart from cheapness, it was unfashionable for the year.

I was 9 yrs. old at the time of the of the hijacking. Seems like about the same time period I remember my older brothers wearing bell bottoms, platform shoes and those real wide ties. Wasn't there also a bow tie craze around that time? Maybe the platform shoes and bow ties came a little later?

Wide ties? I remember wide lapels on suit jackets.

Speaking of which, skinny ties were a 60's thing...

I recall tie die dying out by the start of the 70's. wide colorful ties began. bell bottoms were in as well as silk flowered shirts. bright colors again. I had a pair of lime bell bottoms with imitation silk lime/green flowered dress shirt that was the bomb for the period  :rofl: long hair. big belts, mirrored shades. I recall most stations on the radio were still on AM in the early 70's.

These were the days you didn't worry about locks or alarms. using a calculator was considered cheating. 8mm movies. muscle cars. 3 local TV stations. black lights/posters. full service stations. I would go back in a second compared to this world we live in...

Wet my eyes and my pants ... Thanks Shutter.  Thoroughly enjoyed video!!!          Still chuckling.                    Brings back other memories.....      wide white belts                (I can't believe I am about to admit this)  I was qb on jr. high football team. Joe (willie white shoes) Namoth(sp?) had just won the Super Bowl. So of course I had to have white cleats. It was a decision I immediately regretted. I became everybodys target.             I learned how to tie a tie around this time. The tie I learned on was a wide one.

This link is from a 1971 Sears catalogue - very wide ties, garish colours, inexplicable pants - very not Cooper, n'est-ce pas?
