Escape Artist: silk necktie
Inspired by the rich lore surrounding the life of Harry Houdini, the Cyberoptix TieLab has designed a line of neckwear around this late-Victorian-era icon. Few know that Houdini began his career working in a necktie factory! A slight departure from the TieLab's usual silkscreened ties, this limited edition series is handcrafted from the most luxurious heavyweight silk, each adorned with a unique, antique skeleton key estimated to be at least 60-150 years old. The key is further restrained by hand-patinated, solid copper and solid brass chain that easily detaches for tying and cleaning.
