Some of our ties have a decorative  front, and the stainless steel threads run from front to back where the tie  is fastened together behind the  neck. Without the need for  complicated knots as a cloth tie  uses.
When the halves of the cablery  tie have been brought together, the shape of the loop around  the neck is a very natural arc  which lies over the crest of the  neck-shoulder line. This  ensures that the harder metal  tie doesn’t put pressure on the  shirts collar which might  otherwise push it out of place  or be uncomfortable. 
The mechanism for putting a cablery tie on is much less complicated than the process of tieing knots with cloth ties. With the tie  draped in place around the neck, the opposing halves are simply wound around each other. About the only complication could be  winding in the wrong dierction, and even this is made simple by following the direction of the inherent spiral shape of the threads  which are a constant blueprint built into the tie itself. In addition to being easier to put on, and making it possible to wear the more comfortable and freeing open collar  arrangement, one doesn’t have as much of a concern about getting cablery ties dirty. Leaving boys to be boys, while keeping a  smart appearance. Any dirt on the tie piece won’t be the eyesore of a large visible stain on a cloth tie. And nearly any substance  can be easily wiped or washed off of the smooth stainless steel material, but also won’t damage the tie.   
As anyone who has used wire to bind  things in place understands, when  wire is bent around itself it becomes  solidly locked in place, since to break  the bind the metal at the twist would  need to be bent straight to slide apart.  We use this principle, but use a pre-  bent spiral form which locks in place  when it’s twisted (not bent) back on  itself. By making the entire length of  the tie in this spiral form we create a  tie where the spiral threads can come  together and link at any point. Which  means that the loop running around  the neck and under the collar can take  on variable sizes. It’s not as infinitely  variable as tightening a cloth tie  around the neck, but it means that the  cablery tie can be worn both ‘open’  allowing ones shirt to be open at the  top button(s), or tighter to hold the  shirt collar closed as a conventional tie would. In fact the ‘open-ness’ is more  finely controlled than the steps  inherent in loostening successive  buttons, and those awkward in-  between points when one button is too  little but two is too much can be  avoided.
The same piece can  often be worn in various  ways for slight changes  in appearance.
A (neck)tie is largely a slave to convention. Very little variation exists in their  shape, general materials, and even the way they can be worn. Especially  important is that, with a traditional tie, there’s no way to wear it loose that  doesn’t create a ‘shabby’, ‘scruffy’, or unimpressive appearance. In other  words there’s no way to add such an emphasis piece to a partially open  collar of a dress shirt (which itself can look smart). Well, that’s not strictly  true, and we’ve taken a lot of inspiration from the Bolo Tie (shoestring tie, or  bola tie). But without taking on the ‘western’ theme, there aren’t enough  options for neck atire. Especially where the dress shirt is to be worn in hot  climates, one may want to add an attractive piece to an open collar, and  create a more exciting look. We designed a solution to these issues. Our cablery ties are emphasis  pieces as well as functional ties, keeping one’s collar in check either closed  or regulating the degree of openness.

Adornment for the neck can be type-cast. There are close fitting chokers, which are perhaps the only true neck adornment since other jewelry  tends to use the neck more as a hanging point than the focal point. Chokers tend to be decorative throughout and turn the whole neck region into  a display. Then there are hanging pieces which typically use thread, chain, or other means for holding an elaborate or impressive centrepiece,  using the neck as a draping point. But since there also exists everything in between, we don’t necessarily like to draw classification lines. However  for display purposes ...      And can the neck-tie be classified as jewelry? A ‘personal accessory’ maybe? Our ties, like some of our other pieces, blur the edges of their  supposed classification and get to offer up new options for personal adournment as a result. So we present this neck-worn cablery here and keep  with body-region specific grouping of our cablery.
