Major (League) Ties

Neckties are the quintessential fallback gift when you’re buying for men, but that doesn’t mean they have to be boring. Josh Bach saw an opportunity to make ties something special. When he couldn’t find great men’s items that expressed individuality and creativity, he designed his own, drawing on his training as an architect and art director. His designs are clever and his canvas—a necktie—is the perfect scale for men who want to make a fashion statement without going too far. Josh finds inspiration in familiar subjects and interprets them as fashion. One of his ties illustrates the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, and another turns scientific formulas into graphic design. The Stock Ticker tie depicts soaring stock prices from 1999. For baseball enthusiasts, a ballpark-themed tie incorporates sketches of historic baseball stadiums. Each tie is made from imported silk and hand-finished in New York. Josh’s ties make an impression—they make us smile, or remind us of someplace special, or pique our curiosity. Men, it’s time to tie one on.

    Hello Everyone, Josh Bach here, the accidental necktie designer. It was indeed a twisted path through cross country running, architecture, bartending, graphic design, bike building, art direction, and random acts of foolishness that lead me to start my own necktie company…pretty much without money, without experience, and without a clue! It was my passion for design, graphics, cultural icons, & most importantly, neckties that were my inspiration. And yes, I confess, that was me in the thrift store on Philadelphia’s Main Line 20 years ago, picking out those skinny neckties from the 60’s… “Sorry, a dollar’s the most I can pay!” Anyway, the Grommet has featured some of my favorite patterns, which I hope you will enjoy wearing as much as I enjoyed designing. And now you know the story about the guy whose name is on the label. Cheers!

The launch day conversation has ended. Please direct further questions about this Grommet to our Community Experience Team.
