The Missing Link In Fashion

Subtly proclaim where your passions lie when you don one of designer Bethany Shorb's graphic neckties. From afar, this sleek accessory appears to be printed with a conventional criss-crossed pattern, but a closer look reveals crisp, hand-silkscreened bike chains in a completely unexpected context.

This high-design neckwear links your favorite human powered mode of transportation with your 9-to-5 attire. Whether you're a serious biker with your your spokes set on the Tour de France or you're simply satisfied with the occasional pedal around park, this eye-catching piece lets you show your support for your sport while still keeping your suit looking sharp.


High-quality, water-based inks are hand-silkscreened onto polyester microfiber, so no harmful solvents are required to keep your tie looking crisp. The fine-weave microfiber is a rich, sturdy, yet soft fabric. Handmade in the USA.

Dry-cleaning is recommended to increase the tie's lifespan.
