Brooks Brothers for Tiffany & Co 2-piece tie? Eric Glennie inspired?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I came across a bunch of these today and immediately thought of rising design star EG (hope this wasn't patent pending). They must have been production samples. Snap connectors on one piece, but not the other. I have not seen this concept before. Commeth the ONEKNOT?

Am I missing something? What's the point of a 2-piece tie?

Conceptually, all I see is next level clip-on by way of pre-tied bowtie? Tie the perfect knot (i.e. ONEKNOT) and never have to re-tie it... just lift your collar and unsnap.

The two pieces should have reversed patterns, so that we have the EG congruent tie

I'm sorry. I cannot fathom how these are supposed to work. What is the wide bladed part supposed to snap in to? And I cannot imagine how either BB or Tiffany would want to be associated with this "concept," let alone both at the same time. I suspect some sort of extremely elaborate April Fool's joke.

Snap on ties are useful if you could be the subject of violence. Some professions use Velcro or clip on ties for that purpose.

Back when engineers wore ties but still had to go out to the factory they wore clip-ons or something like what's pictured.

Bow tie, man. Would you beat up a man wearing a bow tie?
