The Ventetian Tie derives its name from
the larger window shading version,
it is long and narrow, and the
are made of much lighter material.
Like the venetian blind, it consists of a
length of hanging, horizontal slats.
These can be adjusted and feathered
using a small
plastic control knob that is located under
shirt's collar, which compliments the tie.
Have it showing a sober grey with blue
stripes in the morning for work, then
feather it the other way to reveal some
mad array of
colour later in the evening.
On a particularly hot day, the slats can be
made to vent a fraction more air, by
turning them parallel or even pulling
way up, just like a blind.
I don't own any ties, but I am considering
making one of these to wear for my next
Venetian blind tie rack
Somewhere to hang it. [skinflaps, Jan 29 2007]
||Recently a form of woven electroluminescent cloth has been invented that permits video displays. That way one necktie could have infinite patterns or even animated patterns.
||Like the concept, but how would the slats cope with being tied into a knot? Or are you looking at a (gasp!) clip-on?
||"....the shirt's collar that compliments
the tie" - there is no knot - the shirt
has a pelmet at the front, unto which
the tie is attached by means of two
||Will this tie work in conjunction with a tie tack? My dad's an engineer, and he'd love all the moving parts, but he always uses tie tacks.
||I suppose if you could make the knob into a faux tie tack, the matter might be resolved that way...
||I had fun morphing the name:
"The Venetian Tie"
"The Italian Connection"
"The Latin Link"
||Yeah, I know. I'm easily pleased. I guess my cockney blood might be at fault.
||I was imagining a plastic tie with a see-through front, that you could add varying amounts of water to.
||But this is much better [+]
||Absolutely awesome! I would definitely wear one of these, if I had a job.
||"...which compliments the tie." - well, it is a very nice tie... (sp. "complements")
