Cooler and Tie

Fashion for stress-puppies
  [vote for,

"Hot under the collar" is often used to describe someone who's upset and anxious.

To alleviate the physical symptoms, why not invest in a BorgCo "Cooler and Tie" ?

You can wear your usual shirt; the device is a clip-on flexible circle of thin Peltier elements with a hook-and-loop fastener at the back. The "cool" side of the devices is on the inside - the outer "hot" side is in contact with a thin, flexible plastic jacket filled with water.

A silent pump concealed in the "knot" circulates the warmed water through a network of capillaries in the front of the "tie", losing energy to the surroundings; behind the dissipator is a slim Li-ion battery which powers the system.

Control is via an RF (Bluetooth) remote, or via a phone App.

       Could be combined with cuffs for a complete outfit   

       I was reading recently how cuff warmers keep hands warm better than gloves

       Cuffs might be possible, though more piping would be needed. But that woud imply a bigger dissipator, either a kipper tie, or a folded surface, which means ... you're going to need a bigger bow...

       // what is a kipper tie //   

       A broad, colourful necktie invented by a Fish (link). Oddly, they were never in fashion at the same time as winklepickers (another link)   

       Gotta hand it to the British, they come up with catchy names for their fashions.

       Euphonious, certainly.
