Flash Post: Star Search
What It Is: Constellations happen to be one of my favourite motifs, so naturally I’m drawn to these star-crossed neckties. With a screened design adapted from a 1822 star chart, these graphic ties are a refreshing break from stripes and polka dots, without veering too far down the novelty tie path. Best of all you can actually customize the ties to any colour that you please – although as a hint, a dark blue or black that channels the night sky is probably your best bet.
Who It’s For: Your brother, as a congrats for graduating from his science Masters program. Your husband, to don at his first week of work as a prof. Your dad, because he taught you all the constellations as a kid and hates stuffy formalwear.
What It Costs: These silk ties are approximately $42 CDN each + $8 shipping.
Where It’s At: Etsy shop Cyberoptix. Which, for the record, carries 670 different styles of ties – surely there’s one that’ll suit your guy’s personal style.
