I Am a New Tie Wearing

San Diego is not a necktie-friendly city. When JT started working at an office that required wearing a tie every day, we had to go shopping. And we found...nothing. Seriously. Well, I guess that's not entirely true -- we did find a few ties, but they looked like they should be worn by 45-year-old real estate brokers. Not indie rock, 20-something journalists with good fashion sense.

So where do you turn when you need cool accessories you can't find in your hometown? Etsy, of course.

I bought JT a tie from Cyberoptix TieLab a few Christmases ago, and it became his one (and only) "special occasion" tie. Then he supplemented it with a couple more for the office. I'm loving this one for JT and our two best men on the big day.

Cyberoptix does custom group orders for weddings, too. How perfect!
