Swiss army tie   (+2)  [vote for, against]
A tie with all the features of the Swiss army knife

Who needs a bulky Swiss army knife hanging around in your trouser pocket, stay fashionable and smart. Utilising the Swiss army tie gives you all the tools normally found in the famous Pen knife. Need a pair of scissors, perhaps a handy saw or toothpick, well look no further its all here, tucked away in the Swiss army tie.

Nope, its all my own work, I like the umbrella though.

Baked. If you have a wide tie you can carry a Swiss Card multitool inside it, held in with velcro. Very useful. NB remove tool before tying tie. You can also carry small knives like this but make sure they are in a suitable sheath .....

I have yet to investigate the potential of Bow Ties ...

I used to write cheat notes for exams on my tie, as well as my ruler and watch band.

That's only useful, [Gulh], if they help you pass the exam.

My physics teacher was told to take of his 'physics formulae' tie whilst envigilating in June's GCSE physics exam.

Ran across something billed as the "world's first load-bearing tie" so I just had to post it here. See link.
