Looking Glass Ties

I can see my house from here.

I detest wearing a tie.
I'll do it, but if the tie only had some practical function other than hanging oneself, it would go a long way towards me not minding so much when I do have to wear one.

Picture a slightly conical slinky.
It can be extended and retracted yes, it can also be made to lay almost flat.
A flattened out slinky sewn into the large end of a necktie with a lens at either end would allow the wearer to loosen the tie, undo the clip which keeps the innards and lenses flattened, and have a camouflaged spyglass at their disposal.

I spy with my little tie...

       Yeah, but if you look through the spyglass for too long you'll end up with kaleidoscope eyes.
