Get Your Groove On!

Its challenging enough finding new and unique designs for women, let alone men. However, yesterday I came across something for guys that I found to be truly creative and original - neckties made from recorded audio cassette tapes! This durable 'sonic fabric' is the invention of artist Alyce Santoro, made from 50% cassette tape and 50% colored polyester thread. The fabric is woven in New Englad, and a limited number of accessories are hand sewn by designer, Julio Cesar in Manhattan. The ties look sleek, funky and are without a doubt, one of a kind! 

I also found these really cool hand-made tie bar pistols, which are cast in solid brass using a vintage 1950's mold. Seems like the creativity in clothing and accessories for guys has been underestimated!

  1. wonder how the designer came up with combining the used materials together. its recycling in a way. id love one of those ties! i want to own a "Sonic Fabric" tie, if not for the product itself, for the name of the fabric. cant say no to anything with the word "sonic" in it. :)
