Not too many men are wearing neckties anymore. Unless they are in business or going to a religious function, most men opt for the casual look.
But today’s Fashion Parade will help them to see what they’re missing: The Disney Nephew’s Necktie should be swinging around your neck right now!
I have an enormous Disney necktie collection! Do I wear them? No. I also have an enormous Disney wristwatch collection that I also don’t wear, so… I don’t know what my point is.
The theme of this tie is music. To start, we have Donald Duck’s nephews: Huey, Dewey, and Louie. They are providing the instrumentation for this piece. Storyboard artist Carl Barks created the trio in the year 1937 to be comedic foils for their Uncle Donald.
The boys are sometimes distinguished by the color of their shirts and baseball caps (with Huey wearing red, Dewey wearing blue, and Louie wearing green). But here they are wearing matching sweaters, so we don’t really know who is who!
Morty and Ferdie Fieldmouse are Mickey Mouse’s twin nephews and are supplying the vocals. They first appeared in Floyd Gottfredson’s 1932 Mickey Mouse Sunday comic strip titled Mickey’s Nephews.
The twin mice could get into just as much trouble as their duck counterparts, often driving Mickey to distraction when he had to mousesit them. Oh, the things we do for family!
This piece of merchandise is likely from the 1980s and carries only the brand of Disney on the label. No manufacturer is given.
