Quirky ties aren’t the ones you should be sporting on your neck if you’re headed to a formal event or if you’re on your way to a job interview. However, ties like the Duct Tape Tie and Wood Tie would make a cool statement, given that the occasion and situation is just right, of course.
From a distance, the Wood Tie looks just like a segmented tie with a fabric that looks like natural wood. But take a gander closer and you will see that the tie is made from cut-up pieces of wood that has been sanded and varnished for your wearing pleasure. Rest assured, no trees (that haven’t already been cut up previously) were cut down to make these Wood Ties, because they’re actually cut up from the wood that were once a part of a barn or a house somewhere.
Spread the word: wooden fashion accessories aren’t just for lumberjacks anymore!
No, these remarkable wooden neckties are just right for a man with a unique personal style and a sense of humor, and who likes to keep things informal even when he dresses up. The ties are made from redwood beams, reclaimed from salvage yards in the San Francisco area. Once part of a barn or warehouse, the wood is cut, sanded and varnished, leaving its natural grain and coloring on display. The individual panels are connected with a hidden elastic cord, which slips easily around the shirt collar.
The Wood Tie is available from Uncommon Goods for $34.
