Geek Chic Alert! Irresistible Resistor Inspired Ties and Scarves. August 24, 2015 15:05
There's no place like ohm, there's no place like ohm.... Resistance is futile! Who said engineers can't dress? We have lots of love for engineers and all things science, we place no value on that silly statement. The Electronic Color Code is used to indicate the values or ratings of electronic components, for resistors, capacitors, inductors, and more. The electronic color code was developed in the early 1920s by the Radio Manufacturers Association.
We're offering this design in both vegan-safe microfiber and 100% silk neckties. Value shown: 3.1k ohms, 5% tolerance. Orange, brown, red, gold stripes with pale copper tie fabric.
To those who don't know, when seeing these ties and scarves in action, it's a nifty stripe pattern. To those who do, it is perfect minimalist geekiness. How can you resist...these are irresistible!
Not a tie fan? Fear not, we have plenty of scarves too!
3.1k ohm code on our camel color linen-weave pashmina - What is "linen-weave" anyway? Linen-weave is very similar to a traditional pashmina scarf, but with more of a linen-like, woven texture, probably more suited to all-season wear. We personally like the feel of these newer scarves a little better, but as always, we offer the linen-weave and regular weight in nearly all of our designs.
Looking for something a little warmer? We offer the Resistor print in our traditional weight pashmina too! Shown here in sky blue.
