Lockable Neck Tie

Double Windsor Security

Much like a normal neck tie, but in the front of the knot is a small key hole.

Insert a key, turn and the tie is locked!

Small latches on either side of the countersunk faceplate, prutrude horizontally into housings in the thinner part of the tie lower within the knot.

Running throughout the inside of the tie material is a metal cable to prevent scissors from breaching the device.

For initial fitting (as some customers have fluctuating neck girth), the lock housing is adjustable within a region of approximately 3 inches.

Be careful to store a spare key in a safe place with friends or family in case you lose your own key.

       Most likely unintended possible kinkiness. Bun!

       I dunno. I think the kinkiness is entirely intended. Otherwise, I don't get it.

       Unlike many [benfrost] offerings, the rudest thing about this is the prut.

       Well it can also be and likely is a modest proposal-esque satire on confining business culture, etc. Though it would be better in that regard if there were some appropriately mocking, halfbaked rationale for why this is a "good" thing.

       A necktie is a symbol of servitude, literally a noose with which one may be led. I *never* wear one.

       Corporate bondage. Interesting.

       If the cable runs down the length of the tie it might be popular with stock market brokers as a handy way to hang ones self in the case of a market crash.

       //popular with stock market brokers as a handy way to hang ones self// That's good enough for me. [+]

       So the cable isn't to keep seedy country restaurants from cutting it?   

       So it doesn't lock into place to stay out of your soup? What is it for?
