Star Wars Skinny Ties: The Hipsters Strike Back

by Paul Strauss

I must confess something. One of the reasons I work for myself is so I never have to wear a tie to work again. Even if ties can be hip, I just can’t stand having that noose tied around my neck all day. But if I’m ever forced to wear one at a fancy dinner or meeting, I choose these.

What’s cool about these Star Wars-inspired skinny ties is that they’re really quite stylish. Some of the ties offer subtle embellishments of R2-D2 or C-3PO, while others replace polkadots with the Death Star, the Imperial seal, and an exploding Alderaan. I also like the little stormtroopers hidden in the Madras plaid.

Perhaps the most obviously geeky design is the black tie with Darth Vader on it. This tie means business. Wear it the next time you have serious negotiating to do, and the other party will relent immediately for fear you will use the Force Choke on them.

There’s no word on when you’ll be able to purchase these ties stateside, but they’re already available in Japan from Kotobukiya for ¥5,040 (~$51 USD) each. I only have one question: why no TIE fighter? That seems like an obvious choice.
