I know, you never thought of yourself as a holiday-tie kind of guy. Neither have your friends and coworkers. But don one of these ties by Paul Winston/Chipp2 and watch them snigger, “Nice Santa tie, bud,” followed by, “Hey, waitaminute… “
From the witty clothier who gave the world Kama Sutra suit linings, the original “F*** You” tie, and the brilliant baseball tie we wrote about before, comes a troika of ties featuring Santas on whose laps you’d never entrust your children.
Two of the ties feature the Chipp signature of a repeated sedate motif with one of the emblematic characters misbehaving. From left to right, the ties are known as “Moon Over the North Pole,” “Santa With a Heart On,” and “Fireman Santa,” in which ol’ Kris Kringle, after downing all those glasses of milk people left out for him, proceeds to douse the smoldering embers of a happy home’s hearth by relieving himself down the chimney.
The silk ties are made in the USA, bear the Chipp2 or Chippmunk logo, and sell for $30 (Santa With a Heart On) and $42 (Moon Over the North Pole, Fireman Santa). Call 212.687.0850 to order. — CC
