Product Description

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.

    Goes well with my pixelated glasses.

    If it were a regular tie, it would not retain the 'square' appeal of a true 8-bit design.

    It is made with nice material, soft to the touch and holds its shape well.

    So this tie is almost too awesome. Nice construction, and definitely a eye-catcher, and all for less than a regular boring tie. There are some things you should really be aware of:

    *This is a clip-on. It has to be, since the knot would be decidedly not 8-bit, being round and everything. Basically what happens is that the front of the tie is grafted on a small regular clip-on tie.

    *It is hand made, so the pixelated look will differ slightly from tie to tie.

    As far as I can tell, the construction is nice, and the geeky ladies respond well!

    I ordered it two days ago and I just got it today so the delivery was fast. If you're a geeky kind of a person, you will really like this. I'm so excited to wear this in class and see what my friends will say about this. The material is good and everything is good.

    PS: It is a clip on

    It was a bit of center of the clip which is slightly frustrating, I suggest they make it into a zip on tie instead.

    At first I thought it would arrive 5 to 6 days to my address but ThinkGeek is somehow a logistics nerd too! The tie arrived not 5 nor 6 days, 2 days was enough to be more than happy with my brand new 8 bit tie, which is also an incredible product and has a guaranteed All eyes on you.

    Bought this tie as a gift for my boyfriend. He got it in 4 business days and loves it. :) It came quickly and is exactly what it looks like in the photo... just awesome.

    I thought I'd only end up wearing this once but after a while I've been able to find a few occasions to wear this and it's a pretty good conversation started. People walk up to me and ask me where I got it. Good times. I've recommended it to others.

    What more can I say? I got this for my brother, who works in the game industry, and he loved it! I can't really speak much for the quality since I never wore it myself, but it seemed pretty nice to the touch when I received it.
