This wood tie is made in San Francisco by a team of innovative designers and craftspeople. Yes, real wood is used to create this tie. And what really makes it totally awesome is the wood is reclaimed redwood from old barns and bridges throughout Northern California. The finest of the redwood is cut into smaller segments and attached to an elastic cord so your wood neck tie is completely flexible and moves with you. The elastic cord adjusts to fit collars properly. The tie is surprisingly light in weight, so they not only look great, but they are comfortable to wear. The tie is 21.5" long and approximately 2 5/8" at its widest point. Women will love wearing this wood tie too.
