Bus Scroll Necktie: Michigan Avenue, Silk
Michigan Avenue Silk Tie - Detroit Bus Scroll Necktie, from our series of Detroit neighborhood and landmark-specific neckties. From afar, you can see a bold geometric print - but at closer look "Michigan" is revealed. In Detroit, Michigan Avenue is one of five major avenues (along with Woodward, Grand River, Gratiot and Jefferson) planned by judge Augustus Woodward in 1805 that extend from downtown Detroit in differing directions.
Our new transit destination illustrations are painstakingly adapted from an early 1980’s bus destination scrolling sign. We have purchased original 40 foot long vintage bus rolls, photographed, joined and made large-format transparencies and silkscreens for each route name. All processes are done right in house, in our Detroit studio located in Historic Eastern Market!
Navigate your city with "Ties to Detroit." Perfect for newcomers, ex-pats and long-time Detroiters alike.
This print extends mid-way up on the tie, approx. 15" from the bottom point, and can be seen from under a vest or jacket depending on how it is tied - or concealed if you prefer. *Please note there is some translucency in the ivory-cream printing on black - to be faithful to the appearance of the original sign.
Make this design uniquely yours by choosing custom ink and fabric colors.
