Now blasting off for $49 courtesy of the evil corporation that ripped off KJP.
I usually don’t go for critters, and actually just got my first critter tie (cross-eyed owls, gold on navy). This would be fun to wear on the Fourth of July and cause double-takes.
If it were a Chipp tie, of course, one of the popsicles would just be a stick. — CC
Just had my first Bomb Pop of the season yesterday. Ice-cream man rigged his new truck to play “The Entertainer” for the entire neighborhood. “What do you call Batman and Robin run-over by a steamroller? Flatman and Ribbon” –Read the Popsicle stick.
Picking up this novel tie hoping to bury the hatchet. I am assuming giving the patriotic nature of this design that it was produced in the USA.
My Chip’s jock strap ties are guilty pleasures. Also, in flyover country it’s considered acceptable to wear criter ties of animals you shot and eat, but the jock tie has nothing to do with that. 😉
Growing up in Kalamazoo, Michigan in the 50’s and 60’s, I never had a Bomb-Pop. Not even sure if I remember seeing them. Dream-sicles, Cream-sicles yes. Then about 5 years ago, my wife who grew up outside of Chicago bought me my first Bomb Pop. I think I’d rather have the tie.
Cool tie. This one’s even cooler at 75% off:
@Christian: Perhaps it’s in the best interest of fair disclosure to note that Kiel James Patrick is an advertiser on Ivy Style.
I disagree with your characterization of Lands’ End as an “evil” corporation that “ripped off” KJP. Kiel James Patrick is just as much a corporation, with it’s inherent motive to maximize profits, as Lands’ End.
The U.S. Trademark Act does not extend copyright protection to fashion designs. Fashion houses are free to copy, cannibalize, and crowdsource designs within certain boundaries. The KJP logo, for example, is a virtual clone of the seal of the Congregation of the Holy Cross: http://www.holycrosscongregation.org/
The assertion that Lands’ End is more of a copy-cat clothier than KJP is like the pot calling the kettle black.
@Mitchell S.- you can get a design patent. Try making an Hermes Kelly or Birkin bag, and you’ll find yourself in court. If KJP, or any designer wants to make the investment in a design patent (which is more difficult to enforce than a utility patent), they can, and they will have recourse to defend their designs…
I thought it was obvious that Christian’s characterization of Land’s End as an “evil corporation” was humorous.
Good point about LE being a thought away from a Chipp tie. LE always seems to come up short like that sometimes (patch breast pocket on the their suits and narrow-ish lapels).
Christian, is the owl emblematic that you have one of Chipp’s famous “Hooters” ties? I’ve been trying to find a picture of that one for ages and have been unsuccessful.
I just can’t get enough of emblematic critters. Almost as much fun to collect as they are to show off.
I have some really great Lands End denim sport shirts I still wear from 2005-2006 Fall Season; but must say that the quality & design have suffered greatly since then & anything I ordered I returned so I do not look at them as a quality supplier and they never have any of their “good” mdse in the sears stores.
