Lost and Sound

Does the absence of high-design neckwear make you hot under the collar? There's no need to tie yourself in knots when you can dress for success with this smart, hand-silkscreened graphic that's fit to be tied.

Here's a high-fidelity fashion accessory that just perfect for DJs, producers, musicians, and audiophiles of all sorts. Whether he's into mash-ups of underground hiphop or he's content dusting off the King's chart toppers, any vinyl devotee is sure put this record inspired tie on heavy rotation in his wardrobe.

High-quality, water-based inks are hand-silkscreened onto polyester microfiber, so no harmful solvents are required to keep your tie looking crisp. The fine-weave microfiber is a rich, sturdy, yet soft fabric. Handscreened in Detroit, Michigan.

      Comments about VINYL RECORD TIE:

      This tie is only offered in one width. Although I liked the design, I knew my 24 year old son would never wear a wide tie. I wish the more modern, narrow width was offered. Returned the tie.

                Great tie for a music lover! We bought this for my fiancee's father and he immediately put it on (as it matched his red Christmas jacket perfectly) and then wore it to Christmas mass at church where he was an usher! So yeah...I think he liked it :)
