Bringing nerdy back

Folks, we love it when people take time out of their busy lives to find a way to create something that is going to make things easier for all of us. Even better if these items can be created in such a way as to be functional as clothing as well. After all, clothes just don't do quite enough, generally stopping at merely keeping us covered and warmer.

But we've got to wonder why people would really need a tie to hold their iPod.

After all, most of the time when people wear ties, they're wearing them with button-down shirts. Said shirts quite often have pockets. They might also be wearing a tie with a coat or a blazer, which again would provide pockets.

So does a tie really need to have pockets of its own? How about extra fabric to keep the earphone cords closely concealed? Is this really the best usage of creative talent?

Although we have to admit that these ties will make it a lot easier to listen to Shakira during that extremely long board meeting. Maybe we'll start seeing more businessmen with bushy beards, to further conceal the earphone cords.

Or maybe we'll just see these ties worn by hipsters, to match their fedoras and t-shirts. Yeah, that second option is more likely.
