Real National Treasures

Celebrate America with these silk neckties honoring the nation's most treasured documents. The tie at left features the signatures of the wise men who drafted the Constitution, and the rightfully famous three-word phrase that begins the document: "We the People." And the tie at right has the signatures of the Founding Fathers - those who "pledged to each other their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor" in signing the Declaration of Independence - including Jefferson, Adams, Franklin and - of course - John Hancock. Created by New York designer Josh Bach, each design is printed on fine, imported silk and then hand finished. Made in New York.

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 SIGNATURES NECKTIES:

I have never purchased a SILK tie that had "Stretchiness" to it!
Not sure it's 100% silk.

Could not BELIEVE how the company packaged this tie! It came in a small flat envelope and tie was folded 4 times!! Creases in 4 different places! I will now have to send the tie to the cleaners and have the creases steamed out!

Nice ties, disappointing wrap/gift box

Comments about SIGNATURES NECKTIES:

Ties were nice, and I opted to pay extra for a gift box-- and though the box was very nice, not appropriate size for a tie. The ties are silk and should lay flat, but the box is too short so they were curled up on both ends. Not a good display and not great to keep them wrinkle-free. They are also wrapped in a plastic material, makes them look cheap. There's no information included with the ties to indicate the quality and/or any info about the artist who made them, etc. That would be nice with quality ties like this.

Great look, but poor presentation

Pros

  • Good Quality

Cons

  • Poor Presentation

Best Uses

  • School Tie

Comments about SIGNATURES NECKTIES:

This tie is great and my husband loved it, being a history teacher and all. The color is great and true to the picture. The only complaint is the horrible packaging it comes in. It's literally just slipped inside a thin piece of clear plastic and then shipped in a yellow bubble wrap envelope. I had to search for a box to put it in when i gave it to him but even then it was not as I had hoped it would be. Please send this out in a tie box or something equivalent for future recipients!

Comments about SIGNATURES NECKTIES:

Got this tie to wear with a white herringbone button-down shirt with french cuffs, patent navy heels, red skinny belt, and navy pinstripe skirt. It's a men's tie, so it's super long on me (I'm 5'6", size 2). I found an online tie tying video and managed to get it tied the way I wanted (big and asymmetric). Now I just put it over my head and tighten it. Can't wait to wear it on Sept 17th, the day the Constitution was ratified!

    Comments about SIGNATURES NECKTIES:

    This tie was bought for my very politically active and civic minded nephew for his graduation gift. He loved it...put it on immediately...right over his tshirt and shorts! I agree with some of the other reviewers on the shoddy packaging...looks cheap in comparison to the niceness of the tie. I'm still very happy with the gift! I just draped it over a book about leadership and it made a nice statement.

    Comments about SIGNATURES NECKTIES:

    product is great, but sender needs to provide a box. It comes in a piece of plastic and tie boxes are not the easiest boxes to come by. I had to settle on a non-tie box and it diminished the excitement and presentation of the gift.

      Got both ties for my husband as a gift. They are perfect for him- a total American history buff. I have never seen anything like these ties. He absolutely loves them and wore them right away. The ties are beautiful, were delivered in good condition. I did take them out of the plastic sleeves that they came in, and found a box suitable for gift giving.
