Michael Phipps Brings Geek Chic in Line With the Corporate Dress Code

Let your geek flag fly high while still staying within the bounds of the office dress code with the Circuit Board Necktie. The Circuit Board Necktie is a custom-made tie from Michael Phipps of Scatterbrain Ties that is designed to look like a--you guessed it--circuit board.

It used to be that geek chic consisted solely of Zelda t-shirts and imported Mario handbags. That is all changing as children are increasingly growing up geek and deciding to liberate themselves from the confines of their mom's basement. This revolution has lead to an overhaul of nerdy apparel to include professional attire like the Circuit Board Necktie. The design of this tie was screen-printed using copper and silver metallic inks to give it that realistic circuit board look. The tie comes in two colors and sells for $30. If you're looking to keep things casual, Phipps also makes matching circuit board t-shirts.
