Dorky ties for dorky people

Featuring binary code that spells out 'ties suck.'

ProductDose

When people say "geek chic," they're usually referring to hipsters in black Dolce & Gabbana glasses typing away on their MacBook Pros. But everybody knows that your average legit geek is more in the mold of Dwight Schrute than Gideon Yago (I bet that guy doesn't even know what PHP stands for).

Want to go for some real geek chic? Check out ProductDose's feature on nerdy neckties. My favorite is the binary tie, which probably looks like a normal blue tie from more than three yards away. But up close, it's clearly a bunch of supremely geeky zeros and ones...which, translated from binary, spell out "Ties suck."

So, if you think the PC in the "I'm a Mac" ads is the truly "cool" one, these are for you.
