Spruce Up your Ties

Skinny Fatties

Dig a tie's fabric but not its shape? Don't walk away from that thrift store find just yet. SKINNYFATTIES modifies wide neckties to give a sleek new look. "I lost my full-time job and didn't have the money to buy job interview clothes. Instead, I learned how to tailor huge second-hand button-up shirts to fit me. Then, I found this box of fat ties in my closet. I immediately thought, 'I KNOW there is a way to make these cool ties skinny!' I did just that and became a real hit with my friends. One thing led to another and SKINNYFATTIES was born, becoming my full-time gig. For each tie purchased and every tie tailored, a $1 donation is made to Career Gear, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that helps men transition into the workforce. Full circle." said Founder and Designer, Joshua Adam Brueckner.
