Help Us Decide if These are Cool or Not: Metal Neckties

Metal Neckties

We recently spied these metal neckties on Recyclart, and I've had them open in a browser tab for a week, cause I just can't decide how I feel about them. I know I'd never buy one, but are they interesting and unique, or simply the heirs of the gag gift novelty tie?

They're not cool.  They're dangerous!

Pair these ties with a well-fitting shirt tucked in correctly, and wear the tie at at the correct length=cool, fun and sexy.

Meh.  I vote not cool.  And possibly dangerous???  From the site:


"“CAUTION HANDLE WITH CARE AND USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. DO NOT USE NEAR BABIES AND/OR CHILDREN OF ANY AGES. DO NOT USE NEAR OPEN ACTIVE ELECTRICAL WIRING. DO NOT USE NEAR ACTIVE MACHINERY. NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY INJURIES AS A RESULT OF THE USE OF THE TIE”. By purchasing the tie you agree to the warning."


I don't usually like my clothes to come with warnings.

Definitely a novelty item. They must be uncomfortable to wear and I wouldn't want to hug someone wearing one.
