The seven-fold four-in-hand necktie is the expensive necktie construction
ever known. Being very complicated and expensive it was almost
forgotten, but came again after the strict economy policy after the Great
Depression. These ties come with particular designer labels, but the
selling price starts from a minimum of $160 USD.

The seven-fold necktie construction method shows us the procedure when it
was created in the beginning. There were no liner materials like wool,
cotton or canvas and the quantity of the silk used was also very small.
The construction method seems to be very simple however it requires near
an hour to produce one.

But comparing with typical departmental store ties they can produce one
tie with in 20 to 25 minutes. The method consists of a square shaped silk
folded to seven sections of silk in between the folds. It is necessary to
stitch the edges of the cloth to avoid from fraying. A long thick wire of
silk or twine is used for fastening the folds. As a resultant product
from this procedure will be a remarkable necktie.

The seven-fold tie is guaranteed for its durability and also for its
luxury. The tie’s weight and body is derived from the silk layer. This
gives the necktie a distinguishable dimple, which formed just below the
knot when certain method of neck tying was used. These seven folds are
reconstructable. Many times we may notice that the common ties produce
wrinkles if its knot is left tied for a longer day, but when considering
seven-fold four-in-hand necktie this will not happen.

Many designers showed interest in producing a hybrid namesake necktie
with same beauty as that of this seven-fold, but none came in practical.
Those produced also contain liners of any material with a low percent of
silk and also there will be series of folds visible at the bottom of the
tie. However this can be avoided by careful observation about the
thickness at mid-tie exposes at the end of folds. But in function these
faux seven-fold neckties will not act as that of the true seven-fold four
in hand neckties.
As though they have constructed like the same high-quality silk they knot
like regular lined ties only so they are called “double four folds”.

Usually the seven fold necktie can be identified by the missing of the
secondary material other than silk is visible in between the layers or a
change in consistency for the whole length of the tie. In these necktie’s
back side we can see the fabric’s inverse woven pattern.
