Bow ties are cool. Never doubted that for one minute after hearing – seeing? – the 11th.
If you’re not particularly keen on the 11th Doctor (c’mon now), check these out. You’ll probably change your mind.
And even when he was saying goodbye…(tears)
As sad as that goodbye may have been, get that chin up. We’re giving away a bow tie of your choice, thanks to the Speicher Tie Company. They’ve got all sorts of bow ties, but of course, our eyes are on one thing: Doctor Who bow ties. (At least my eyes are)
How can you not want this TARDIS bow tie?
How about this Dalek bow tie, which will make everyone’s eyes pop out?
It’s not all about Doctor Who, though. There are other designs that will fill up your geek meter, like this Periodic Table bow tie.
Or this Star Trek bow tie.
As you can see, these bow ties are not your run-of-the mill kind. Sure, they are made cloth, but depending on the design, there’s some special sauce thrown in. The Star Trek bow tie’s is Enterprise, while the Dalek bow tie’s is some evil. You can’t get that from your usual bow tie!
The Speicher Tie Company prides itself in hand-crafted items, made-to-order. All of them are made by Adam Speicher, who sums his work up so poetically, as only a bow tie lover can.
“Designing and creating Bow Ties is a profoundly mystical and magical process much like wearing one.”
Want one of these babies?
Here’s how to get one.
Side note: In case you’re wondering, “Speicher” is pronounced “Spiker”.
