Design with Lift-Off

Let imagination take flight with this blueprint-style Wright Brothers tie. This fine piece of neckwear has designs based on the Wright Flyer, which the aeronautical brothers first tested in 1903. It was the first piloted, motor-driven machine to achieve flight. A fun piece for the architect, pilot or innovator in all of us. Hand finished in the USA.

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

      A little spendy, but it is silk, so thumbs up.

      Cut the price in half and I'd vote for it, even if the material was changed from silk. It's an awesome design, but $45 is more than most people can afford for the shirt under the tie. In this day and age a company will make more money selling quantity than quality.

      again with the weird ties, how does anyone know what it is unless you explain it, and then what's the point?

      Most of my men don't wear ties, probably wouldn't wear baby blue, and from the pics, hard to tell the design is anything special.

      Not sure I like the color though. What about black with white?

      My husband is a pilot, he has been in love with planes since he was 4...he would love this!

      One more aviation tie is always good...have husband who is great pilot, but shy...always wears an aviation theme tie when going to someplace where "small talk" is going to be required and let's someone else start the conversation! And it is hard to find ones that are nice silk ties and not cutesy planes.
