Tread Lightly!

Automobile enthusiasts can rev up their dress shirt with this high-octane necktie that features an abstracted tire tread pattern. A perfect pick me up when your morning routine falls a little flat. After all, the clothes do make the man.

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.
