I figure this post could go here since I am dealing with silks ties.
I am competing in the Daytona Magic convention in the close up competition. I am looking to put the cut and restore neck tie. I am trying to find good ties that are easy to cut and where I can find bundles of cheap ties, like a package of ties for cheap. Anything information can help me.

William88,

There might be another solution, avoiding to spend hundreds of dollars for ties. Can't tell you more in the open forum.

But just think about it and you'll find the solution yourself.

Oliver.

William,

About three years ago George Schindler and I were attending a magic show and discussing that very problem. In the 60s and even the 70s we could get all the good new and matching silk ties we wanted for $1.50 each on 42nd Street. Back then we thought nothing of it.

Life changes things! (Of course, we could have gotten lunch for $1.50 too!)

Good luck!

I don't know about lunch prices, but the price of neckties went down to a buck the day Dollar Stores were invented.

George carried my blendo tie back then. Ties were so cheap, I found a tie manufacturer and had them make ties for me for under a buck using my material.
I probably still have a few case in the warehouse.

My blendo tie had gotten 4 stars in Genii, they were pure silk, but the weave always got caught on my calloused hands (I used to be a projectionist and had rough hands from the sprockets).
I had boxes and boxes of ties.
Now, you can go to thrift shops and get tons of ties. Shoot for solid colors and you can get some matches.
I just released the Blendo Tie again using a Red, white and blue tie as the finale.

I also had a method for cut and restored that used one tie over and over again.

William88,I can pass this on to you. If Bob Sanders and Magic Ian put you onto a good deal you will do well for yourself by looking into it. I know them both and have done business with them. I am not their biggest customer but I was treated like I am both before and after the sale. Thought Farmer.

Yes I am going to be at Daytona, I figured it has never been seen in compatition in a long time. I found it in Tarbell vol 4. The C&R Tie is going to be my opener so it a big part of my act there.
