A Necktie That Zips: Zip Tie from Actual

You probably know Actual from seeing their UM Pack made out of industrial felt that we’ve featured before. Josh Jakus, the head of Actual, never ceases to amaze us with his ingenuity and with his latest, the Zip Tie, he’s done it again.

I don’t know about you, but a lot of the dudes I know haven’t perfected the art of tying a tie. I don’t blame them. If you don’t have to wear a tie on a daily basis, it’s not a skill you necessarily need to master. Enter the most genius thing ever: a tie that zips and unzips – no tying required! It’s completely idiot-proof.

Made from their trademark 100% Merino wool felt, the tie is available in three sizes (depending on your height) and comes in grey or blue.
