Science Affair.

Sharpen your focus, and your wits, with this geektastic tie that takes the microscope out of the science lab and transports it into your closet. This original illustration is based on vintage chemistry lab apparatuses. Who knew you could make that standard dress shirt look so smart?

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.

          My husband is an ardent pathologist who was surprised and loved the tie when I presented it to him. He wore it for his graduation and all his pathologist professors wanted to know where he got it from as they wanted a similar one too....

            This was the perfect gift for my husband. He is a pathologist and has a special affection for microscopes. The vintage look was also a hit because he collects antique microscopes. As soon as I saw in the catalogue, I knew he'd love it. I was right!

                My son-in-law just earned his PhD and will soon begin teaching college students. As soon as I saw this tie, I knew he would love it! His birthday is five months away and I can't wait to give it to him! The vintage motif and subdued black and gray colors of the tie are perfect. This tie would be good for any guy interested in science.
