Some Far Out Novelty Anime Neckties From Japan

   Great neckties. 
Whoever says that wearing a novelty tie is not cool is no fun to kick back with.  And that guy probably is too stiff to run with some hot babes I know, that is for sure.  Surely that guy has never seen the Ralph Marlin classics, Silver Surfer and the Wolverine - both in silk and both actual collector items.  I have both and could never part with either.  I make a living selling novelty neckties at http://www.nicetiestore.com/ and write articles on line for e-zines and my blog http://nicetiestore.blogspot.com/

Here is the New York Times mention of this trend in neckties

Novelty neckties are one of those things that are great in concept but terrible in reality. No self-respecting person could bring himself to wear a piano keyboard tie or something along those lines. I had a hard enough time convincing my dad to wear a very subtle novelty tie, one with a very tiny, practically invisible elephant motif.


Thus, these K-On! "rockties", like the Mio bowl or countless other moeblob goods, simply exist. I suppose you could hang them on your dorm doorknob to signal that you've a girl in your room.

Check out photos of the ties in the gallery, reserve yours for a modest 1900 yen at Hobby Search, or watch the video above and curse the goods-making gods for not having a castanet-themed version.
