Keeping your tie collection fresh can cost an arm and a leg, cruelly making cool ties even more important, as you now have to draw attention away from the fact that you're just a torso. Thankfully, Netflix-for-ties is here, and it's called Tie Society.
Just-launched, District-based TS
clearly stole Taco from the The League's ingenious idea for "Neckflix"! Oh wait, no one watches that show is ingenious: it's basically a giant online tie rack, allowing you to select, wear, then trade-in designer neckwear, all for way less than such gullet-fashion would cost via "traditional supply channels", meaning you can finally stop DVR-ing QVC all day. Just pick a three-, five-, or 10-items/month package, then peruse their catalog of accoutrements, with each piece being rated between one and three "slots" (presumably based on sexiness); add the stuff you want to your "closet", and it'll arrive within three days, with them paying all the shipping (what are you, the Duke of Double Windsor!? Lol, you're not!). Don't like what you end up with? Or do like it, for a period of time, but then fear it's so likable that co-workers will start noticing you're not switching things up because you like it so much? Then just send it back whenever (there're no due dates or late fees), and choose something else from amongst their 110-strong stock of collar candy, which includes designers like Barbican 1891, Bruno Piattelli, and Hart Schaffner Marx.
And if that's not enough to tie-d you over (ha! Duke of Windsor!), they also stock 25 stylish cuff links, which maybe you can just rock as earrings or something.
