Here’s a remarkable item from Oviatt’s – a necktie that the vendor says belonged to James Benton Van Nuys. And by remarkable, I mean remarkably hideous.  But it is from Oviatt’s, one of the most distinguished men’s stores in Los Angeles. Bidding starts at $39.95

Sept. 3, 1962, J.B. Van Nuys

Sept. 3, 1962: J. Benton Van Nuys dies at the age of 79.
