Josh Bach

Josh Bach can't turn around in New York City without seeing something that inspires him. He also can't walk a block from his New York City apartment without seeing somebody sporting a necktie.

Stands to reason, then, the designer of witty but classy ties is in the right spot. Josh, who studied architecture at University of Pennsylvania before becoming a bartender-turned-advertising art director, lives in New York's Financial District. One day, he looked down and realized neckties are like blank canvases. The original concept was to do witty and whimsical ties that are wearable?like the one he conjured using design sketches of now-demolished baseball parks, or the one that spits out stock quotes from neck to belt, or, the necktie that's as useful for navigation as it is for fashion: the NYC subway map tie. collection

        Comments about PERIODIC TABLE OF ELEMENTS TIE:

        My husband wore this with a navy dress shirt and a grey vest. The combo looked very professional and dapper. He received multiple compliments and was very happy with how he looked and the style of the tie. He's a science teacher, so this was perfect for him. As soon as my son saw it (he's 12) he asked if he could have one too!

                This was a great present for my husband. He wanted a creative tie, but not one that could cause others to label him as immature (as many science themed ties tend to do). Great quality and great product!

                          Comments about PERIODIC TABLE OF ELEMENTS TIE:

                          I saw this tie and just LOVED it. I have a friend who is a nuclear engineer and I knew he would appreciate the humor in it. I bought it for him for his birthday. I was disappointed when I received it, because it was an expensive tie, and the quality of it was very lacking. I still like the idea of it and I know my friend will get a good laugh, but is so cheap looking he will not actually be able to wear it to work. Plus it looks like I didn't spend a whole lot on it (even though I did), so I will have to get him an additional birthday gift.

                            My husband wears ties to work on "Tie Tuesday" - he has several I have purchased him from Uncommon Goods. He really likes the way they blend science and technology with fashion - much more fun than stripes or paisley!
