Ties. I’ve had the displeasure of having been asked to knot the ties of a few of my guy friends when we attended a wedding last week, and let me just say that it was one of the hardest things I’ve had to do. Clearly, I should’ve paid more attention to the girl scouts who went around teaching people how to tie all sorts of knots when I was kid.
If you share the same hate relationship with ties, then zip it. I don’t mean that you should put a lid on your complaints; rather, I’m talking about getting the Zip Tie, which does away with knots since all you have to do is zip the tie into place. Quick, easy, painless–and I daresay, fashionable?
The Zip Tie, which was designed by Josh Jackus of Oakland-basd design company Actual, retails for $65.
