Reversed 2-pattern tie

Small half in front

I had a dream I was wearing 2 ties at once. The knot was something new, and the patterns of the two ties were different but complementary.

This could be accomplished without inventing the new knot. The thin half of the tie usually hangs in back concealed by the large half. I propose that the thin half could be made with a different design than the thick half, then the tie worn with the thin half in front. A square of velcro in the back could hold it in place, or a tie pin, or it could swing loose.

A few combinations I just thought of: waves in back and a school of fish in front, stars and comets in back and an abstract sunrise in front, blue stripes on an orange background in back, with the same pattern inverted on the front...etc.
