Ah, we remember the corporate days when we used to wear suits and ties to work. Man, that sucked.
It was way before Gay List Daily, of course, where you’ll be lucky if we’re wearing anything more than a casual Friday ensemble of granny panties, nipple clamps and mismatched Crocs.
Yet we’ve always wondered what to do with the literally thousands of dollars worth of old ties we have lying around. Dog leashes for really short people with really tiny dogs? Fancy pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey blindfolds? Or designer autoerotic asphyxiation accessories, perhaps?
But Jetsam beat us to the punch.
They’ve taken old ties and suit components and upcycled them into really cool wallets.
Collections include the Prepster (dapper patterns and traditional hues from reclaimed classic neckties); The Natty Professor (classic tweed herringbone from reclaimed vintage men’s jackets); and, our favorite, The Uncle Larry (bold patterns and bright colors from reclaimed retro 70s-era neckties).
Each wallet features a large pocket for bills and two smaller pockets for cards, and comes in a recycled gift box.
This is one of the best fashion accessories we’ve come across in a long time. Mostly because it’s been a long time since we’ve had something this fun stuffed in our pants.
Note: The designer is on vacation, so you’ll have to wait until September 5 to finalize a purchase. Sometimes it’s nice dealing with a human and not a computerized robot order taker.
