Atomic Prints for the Whole Nuclear Family! November 25, 2015 10:19 2 Comments

Cyberoptix atom print neckties

Good morning, science tie lovers! We've had so many requests for an atoms design from our loyal customers, we just had to make sure to sneak one more in before the holiday season for you.

Have a Nuclear Family? It's a perfect gift if you know someone studying nuclear medicine, atomic energy or maybe maintains a nuclear power plant in his or her spare time. Just love the retro scientific diagram shape? That's cool too! 

Repeating patterns work well on all tie shapes. This print is available in our regular standard width, narrow, skinny and extra long microfiber. Want to match Dad? It will even work on all our three kid-sized ties

We'll be releasing this on a bow tie too in just a few more days.  Interested in us up-sizing it to a scarf, we can do that too if you ask nicely!

Atom print silk tie

For you silk purists, we also offer this in both standard and narrow width silk. We've shown some favorites here in dove grey on black; light violet on eggplant and ice on french blue - but it will work well in just about any color way you can imagine. We're especially fond of tone-on-tone prints, but you can get cuckoo crazy with wild color combinations too.

Have a thing for mid-century, cold war era design?  We do to!  Here are some friends of the Atom Tie.

This design echos the boomerang and kidney-shaped patterns made popular by Formica and Herman Miller in the '50's & '60's...except these aren't just shapes, they're WEENIES! Be the envy of every snappy dresser at your next cocktail party.

Civil Defense Survival Supplies Neckties. This kit held basic fallout shelter health supplies such as cotton balls, forceps, syringes, safety pins, soap...but sorry kids, nope..."no narcotics." For an authentic fallout shelter color combo, choose black on pale copper. Ammo-box and water container military colors like yellow on golden olive also look great. You can get creative with other colors too!
