The Modern Tie: A Modular Neck Tie System With Interchangeable Ties Held In Place By Magnets

June 6, 2019

This is a video demonstration of the Modern Tie, a modular neck tie system that consists of a fake plastic knot (available in a bunch of different styles) that slides onto a dress shirt's top button, and holds whichever hang-down tie style you choose in place with neodymium magnets. All the fake knot styles are all around $20 apiece, and ties between $25 - $30. Alternatively, learn how to tie an actual tie. Unfortunately I never did, which is why I just bought a bunch of these, then at the next wedding I have to go to I'm going to constantly swap out my tie for a different one whenever my girlfriend has her backed turned. How funny will that be?! "Not very." Sooooo... "So try to get your $145 back." EMAILING NOW.

Keep going for a couple product pics and the video demo.




Thanks to Clint, who informed me he's only going to wear the plastic knot. Hey -- you do you.

    It occurs to me that I haven't worn a tie since the last time I went to a funeral. Thank fuck I don't have to wear ties because I hate that shit.

    I have it and really like it. I got a good laugh at the comments though!

    I get more compliments when I wear this than any other Tie I have. It is cool looking in person.

    I guess the magnetic suspenders wouldn't work very well....

  • Kenrod

    My dad was a bartender and only wore clip-ons. He called them "tear-away ties".

    For when you're not sure if you're actually a man yet or still just an old boy...

    So glad I have a job that doesn't require a tie so I don't have to worry about this kind of stuff.

    So... what if you have a long torso vs a shorter one? Or a big fat gut?

    Ties come in multiple lengths to ensure the perfect fit!

    Soooo... just a clip on tie?

  • kodama

    Congratulations, you've invented the clip-on tie.

  • WhiteEagle2

    But wait, there is more! Have you been afraid that clip-on ties look too much like a real tie? Don't worry, we've got extra fake looking knots that will be make your tie unmistakable for a clip-on!

  • Danny

    It slides over your top button. In the summer when It is hot I wear it. I guess I am a little boy. ha ha
