Electromagnetic Necktie

We call them "ties" in the UK but I'm going Global...

If you're like me, you hate it when your tie knot slides during the day and the top button of your shirt becomes visible.

If (also like me) you don't like to wear tie clips and aren't very good at fancy knots, then how about this:

Thin wires run along the length of the tie - inside, of course, completely unseen. These are connected to a tiny battery, also inside the tie - possibly at the end?

When you tie the tie and create a coil, switch on the circuit and the tie will hold itself together, thus eliminating any slippage.

It's just occurred to me that it'll be handy for holding paperclips as well =)

       You should get shirts with a slightly smaller neck size and not be afraid to tighten the tie around your neck until it is the same circumfrence as the collar.

       You're getting too close to Mike Faraday's experiment. When you see grey, you've discovered electritie.
