Fashion Monday: Renewable-Energy Chic

Wind Turbine Ties On Fashion Monday, we highlight a hip, green fashion item. Got a stylish eco-friendly product to recommend? Tell us about it and look for it in an upcoming blog post.

Cyberoptix Tie Lab makes, as they call them, “ties that don’t suck.” Eco-friendly and fashion-forward, each necktie is screenprinted by hand using nontoxic, water-based ink. Which is refreshing, since the screenprinting process is notoriously nasty. Besides this wind turbine tie ($30), we like the company's “Topographical Error” cravat, emblazoned with vintage contour lines. And, if you’re in the market for an eco-unnecessity, complement your new wind farm tie with a G-TIE – a superfluous metal wrap for your necktie knot.
