A few of us monkeys at ThinkGeek had this great shared dream a few months ago. In it, the whole world was 8-Bit, just like the video games we grew up on. We found ourselves having to leap from platform to platform, to search for pieces of the Triforce of Wisdom, and to fight scary mutated plants and animals. The music was awesome (and still stuck in our heads) but the coolest part was what we were wearing: a tie. But not just any tie, an 8-Bit tie!
We woke up screaming. An 8-Bit tie - what an awesome way for the drones of Cubeland to show their independence from Corporate America! So, we did what we knew you'd want - we had the ties made. Silk-like Microfiber construction, clip on* (for easy dressing and t-shirt wear if needed), and custom designed by us for you. You'll be the envy of the office or, at least, you'll get tons of attention. You'll be just like Mario when he wore a tie to meetings when negotiating his contact with Nintendo. Sure the Wii, PS3, and Xbox 360 are out there with all their super technology, but sometimes it's nice to remember the beginnings of the video game revolution. Viva la 8-Bit!
* Clip on note - Hey folks, there is a very good reason why this tie must be a clip on. A real tie would end up creating a non 8-bit curved triangle knot at the top of the design. The 8-bit effect would be instantly lost. Nanny Nanny boo boo.
This tie looks so awesome!! Very well made. Goes well with my pixelated glasses. It's made with a normal Silky tie material, which is good because in the picture it looked more... Read morePublished on September 7, 2012 by Gio
This tie is bright, vibrant and it certainly turns heads with it's sexy retro flare. The pixelated design is perfect for any retro gamer or any fan of 8-bit games. Read morePublished on June 6, 2012 by INKD.REVY
My boyfriend loved it :) It is made out of a nice material and seems durable enough. Too bad its a clip on.Published on May 18, 2012 by Brianne
I love the darn thing! I'd probably wear in everyday, everywhere I could, which is cool, because sooner or later I'm actually going to be able to use it. Read morePublished on February 4, 2012 by MaltBall

I wore this for a New Year's Eve party a few years back and everyone took well to it. My only issue with it is that it's a clip on instead of a true tie, but that may not bother... Read morePublished on January 5, 2012 by Tarun
