Attention ladies, gents, beer lovers, scarf lovers and especially you necktie haters! Our much-loved Beer Tie finally has a proper matching pashmina scarf friend. Made with so much more hoppy and wheaty graphic for you, our new and very, very improved Beer design is now sized especially for our scarves. With the print measuring 16"x 25" at one end, it is sure to elegantly catch the attention of all hops fanatics as far as the eye can see. Shown above, sage on golden olive linen-weave pashmina.

While Oktoberfest is about to get into full swing, we know that repping your love for beer still must happen year round, and in all climates, so we offer this scarf in two weights: our all-season linen-weave pashmina shown here in sage on espresso brown (and of course tons more colors too because that's what we do! ) and our traditional weight, a bit fuzzier and warmer, pashmina below.  Like Beer itself, our scarves are enjoyed by both women and men. Our print and scarf colors echo the natural colorway of the hops plant itself, the sudsy elixir it provides, and the bottles that give it it's glassy home.


Traditional weight Beer Pashmina in a brand new scarf color: espresso on citrine ($44).

Still after our Beer tie?  Of course we have those too!  Our beer ties are available in microfiber (non-silk), 100% silk, and while we don't recommend putting beer in sippy cups, they're perfect for junior groomsmen in beer-themed weddings, so we also have this design in kid size clip-on ties too!

For the ultra dapper set, you can get your Hops and Wheat fix in our self-tie (the "real" tying kind) bow ties, chic coordinating pocket squares, self-tie ascots and silk scarves too.

Need a custom color to match your wedding party or brewpub's theme?  Of course we can do that too!  head on over to our customizations page where you can get our Hops and Wheat print in 74 fabric colors, over 100 printing ink colors. Anything is possible for just $5 more. How cool is that?

Bandana Print Neckties & Bow Ties. New from Cyberoptix! July 29, 2015 14:54

We've got another new design for you! Our classic paisley Bandana Print is now available on neckties, bow ties and since response has been so great, soon to also be released on scarves and pocket squares. Such a simple piece of decorative cloth has quite a storied history through both fashion, counter-cultural symbol and it's use as a utilitarian item. We've reworked the square bandana shape so it can be donned for both fun and the most formal events.

Original illustration based on old-timey bandana patterns. Hand-screen printed as always in our Detroit studio.

As seen in our self-tie Bandana Print bow ties, for an authentic bandana look, choose one of the classics: crimson, black, navy blue or red.

Feeling more fashion forward as seen on our silk Bandana Print tie examples? We have lots of great new purples - shown here is a white print on spiced wine and eggplant.

You can get creative with other colors too, as this design looks great in any color combo! Prefer a different tie fabric color or printing ink color than what is listed in our menu choices? YES we can do that!!!  We'll be posting a lot more examples for you to see as soon as they're ready. This design looks great in just about any colorway under the sun, from bold and contrasty to subtle tone-on-tone -- they're perfect for groomsmen and wedding parties. You can have the colorway of your dreams for just $5 more!
