If you've just moved to a new city to start a new fancy job, the Bluebelland Map Tie would be invaluable for for two particular reasons. Firstly, you'll need a fancy neck-worn accessory to spruce up your crisp business suit; secondly, you'll require some instruction to orient you within an unfamiliar and intimidating metropolis.

Rakuten designed these neckties with striped and polka-dot patterns, available in several color options. Unusually, great attention was paid to the hidden back side of the professional accessory where subway maps are printed right onto the quality silk material. The Bluebelland Map Tie features the underground system networks for Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka. To reference them without looking like a tourist, simply curl over your tie and take a quick peek inside.
