Love It Or Leave It: How Do We Feel About Wooden Ties?

By: Winona Dimeo-Ediger / April 10, 2012

Wood Thumb is a startup company in San Francisco that turns old pieces of wood into brand new … neck ties. Yep, wooden neckties. The accessories are one-of-a-kind thanks to natural variations in the woods, and flexible thanks to a unique design: the wood is cut into smaller pieces and connected by an elastic cord that runs lengthwise through the tie. I’m not sure what the going rate is for an upcycled wooden tie these days, but the company offers two sizes for $36 each, which actually seems like a pretty good deal. You know, if you’re into that sort of thing. So, how do we feel about wooden ties? Quirky? Dapper? Obnoxious? Would you buy one for your man? [Buzzfeed]
