Tie owned and worn by Murray Goldman, owner of Goldman and Son store, Vancouver, BC. Murray Goldman was born in Poland and raised in Montreal, Quebec, until he entered the armed forces in the Second World War. He was stationed in British Columbia and moved to Vancouver after he left the service. Goldman's entertaining marketing ploys, such as cutting his tie in half in a television ad promoting a half-price sale, contributed to his success as a menswear retailer and fashion leader.
