A fashion designer from California has found a way to make the process of tying a tie a little zippier. Josh Jakus is behind the new Zip Tie, a garment that can be draped around the neck and then zipped together to create a unique kind of neckwear. Jakus says he came up with the design after his company was left with a surplus of felt and zippers. He admits it probably won't replace the original tie, but that's fine with him. Jakus explains that the Zip Tie is "perfect for any occasion where you want to both look good and different at the same time." He adds that he has a friend who even wears it to government functions in Washington, DC. Anyone interested in the Zip Tie can get more information at ActualSF.com.
