Music novelty tie – SF approved source for novelty ties? (I'm a teacher)

Hey folks,
I'm going to be starting soon as a music teacher in an elementary school. Hopefully at least some of you will :nodding: that this is an appropriate forum for wearing a novelty tie. I'm looking for something that will get the kids' attention and have a music theme, i.e. music notes, piano keys, instruments.

This kind of thing is easily found on the internet. But I'm wondering if any Styleforumites would have an idea as to where to get a music novelty tie that is well made and has maybe a touch of class to it.

(Note also that I'm on a teacher's salary...)

Thanks!
-Yakov

I suggest haunting your local thrift stores for a few weeks. Novelty ties are the sorts of things that are either gifted or seemed like a good idea at the time. In the end they end up sitting around and not being used and they're always turning up at the thrifts.

Side benefit of this: you may just stumble across a few high-quality ties!

Hermes would seem like the obvious option, but they aren't cheap and music themes are rare.
