You probably never thought of yourself as a holiday-tie kind of guy. But don one of these ties by Paul Winston/Chipp2 and watch your coworkers at the virtual office party snigger, “Nice Santa tie,” followed by, “Hey, waitaminute… “
From the witty clothier who gave the world Kama Sutra suit linings in conservative sack suits comes a troika of ties featuring Santas on whose laps you’d never entrust your children. Two of them 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 ties are still available in this remarkable year of 2020, although they might be difficult for your friends and family to see over Zoom. But they’ll keep you in good spirits, and there’s nothing Santa can bring you better than that.
