Zip Tie: Clever Knot-Free Felt Necktie Uses Zipper Instead

Ties are already arguably throwbacks – vestigial fashion long divorced of function. Still, people labor to tie them daily to fit in, or hide their inability (or need for speed) with a secret clip.

This design by Josh Jakus takes another approach, celebrating simplicity by featuring the method of assembly and attachment as the prominent visual element – a zipper that runs straight up the middle.

And as long as it is focused on usefulness it might as well address comfort – the tie is made entirely from wonderfully warm and non-irritating merino wool felt. It is available in three sizes as well as both blue and grey to work with various figures and suit tones.
