But this is no ordinary tie. It’s a Josh Bach tie.
So, what’s a Josh Bach Tie?
With clever imagery relevant to hobbies, interests, professions and places, don’t mistake these for “novelty” ties. Made of 100% silk, these are well made, nicely designed original stylish neckwear. The patterns are varied and unusual. Some are escher-like, some are artful and some, from afar, can be likened to classic ties from the most expensive designers (we’re talking Hermes), yet, up close they will charm you with their whimsy and originality.
Whether you need a gift for your father, brother, broker, buddy, baseball fan or simply yourself, chances are Josh Bach has a tie that suits you- and your suit. Designs range from demolished stadiums to dogbones, paper airplanes to pasta…. there are almost 90 different silk neckties to choose from. All of his ties make a wonderful statement about both the wearer and fashion.
