Fashion Against the Grain

Spread the word: wooden fashion accessories aren't just for lumberjacks anymore! This accessory is just right for the man with a unique personal style and a quirky sense of humor, who likes to keep things interesting, even when he dresses up. Suffice to say, this is knot your average necktie. These bold ties are made by David Steinrueck and Christopher Steinrueck from redwood beams, reclaimed from salvage yards in the San Francisco area. Once part of a barn or warehouse, planks are cut, sanded and varnished, leaving the wood's natural grain and coloring on display in a charming plain or vertical, striped pattern. Individual panels are connected with a hidden elastic cord, which slips easily around the shirt collar for a comfortable fit. Handmade in San Francisco.

                        My husband loved this gift, wore it out to dinner for his birthday and got complimets within hours of wearing it.

                        Service and delivery comments:

                        A little disappointed that the parcel was sitting in my letter box for a whole day until I got home, when most parcels into NZ would be held at the depot for a signature before being released... so easy for parcels to disappear without a trace.

                                  The tie looks just as good as it does in the pictures. It is certainly quirky but still works for formal occasions.

                                  They put in way more elastic than anyone needs so that you can adjust it to your own height and it will fit. You can trim the elastic if you want so there is no excess or leave it to readjust later.

                                  Service and delivery comments:

                                  Product shipped within one day and arrived very quickly. Packaging was perfect for the size of the item and arrived in great shape!

                                      We can't wait to see what you have to say about this uncommon reclaimed wood tie! We think it could make a great gift for a tie collector, that guys who's always looking for the perfect fun fashion accessory, or that hard-to-buy-for person with a great sense of humor. Who could you see wearing this redwood tie?

                                      This is hilarious and is on it's way to being trendy! Plus it's made in San Francisco-what's not to love? Can kids wear them too?

                                      This wooden wonder will widen your wardrobe, but it might be a bit big on a wee one. The tie is 22 inches long and 3 inches wide, so it's best for adults.

                                      I actually wore one of these to a wedding, and it was AWESOME! The groom even asked to get one. Seriously, these are lots of fun, and perfectly appropriate for a fancy occasion. So don't be thinking 'I couldn't wear that to work, though...'

                                      Perfect retirement gift, or first job gift. Or any time in between.

                                      Nobody would ever wear. Joking or not.

                                      I carry these in my store and sell ALOT of them! People LOVE them! W also paint some and do graffitti on others. Price is AWESOME too! So unique

                                      Kudos to the creator and its made in the USA but no male I know would wear it. Maybe I'm stuffy but I still like the concept!!

                                      These are so cool- can be worn or it's a cool piece of art on your wall:) plus these really nice guys in San Fran make them @ a place called TechShop:)

                                      Not useful unless someone actually has a tie collection.

                                      Seems really fun. If you have to wear a tie to something might as well have fun. More colors would be good too.

                                      This is wonderful. My husband has ties and more ties. He is very conventional and conservative, but I think he could be persuaded to wear it occasionally...especially if the kids give it to him... ;)

                                      I've seen these before. always loved them, married a man that would really like it! showed it to him, and he actually was asking and commenting on a tie in a possitive way!

                                      Nifty idea but unless the person whom this is for works someplace where the dress code is a bit more forgiving, I don't see this having much use.
