Under the Lens.

Tie together your love for photography and snappy neckwear without being too flashy about it. These silhouetted prints come from hand-drawn sketches from technical manuals detailing old Russian cameras, Leicas and movie cameras. For photographers, filmmakers and vintage enthusiasts, this tie is right on the button!

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

      This was a gift to my male friend's 50th birthday. We're born on the same date and I wanted something special for him. A photographer can wear anything anywhere. He loves it and brought me out to lunch!
