Ha ha. I am too young to know how the weird 70s ties looked, particularly in the West

Well, I just like the idea and fabric!

Well if you like it - go ahead and wear it.
Would like to see it in the context of an outfit and not just a shirt / tie image.

I like the Twin ties (created by D.d.M for Zegna), I got few of them:


They got a different version that is less noticeable:


My favorite one (sorry for the picture quality):

There's no rational reason I should dislike them, it's just that tie convention is so ingrained into my visual vocabulary. That, and they should have been called Neckchaku.

Both halves of the tie having the same width? no, never yet seen one. Contrasting halves, yes everywhere. Hilfiger was big on that until recently (possibly still are). edit- I typed this before reading responses to this point. One good thing I can think of...if you get gravy or wine on your tie, you can reverse it in a pinch with the other half. Interesting concept but doing one of these in the morning will be a bitch to match the lengths.

I dont get the point: when I buy a tie, I usually dont try it neither ask the seller to wear it but I can still determine if it works for me.

The zegna ones were okay, but most of the patterns were not that nice so that if you were 'lucky' you liked one side but not the other, which sort of defeated the purpose of it all. The Hermes 4 in 1 knits are great though.

Your tie is usually the same shape and not 8 different colors.

Well, I would say they are slightly more difficult to adjust than normal one but not much more, same as unlined ties, time will make you used to.

I understand the shape is unusual however I would say a picture is not the best indicator: the motion gives a different impression from a "funky side stripe" (no, I wont make movie).
