Great concept and great design.

However, step 7) should absolutely, most definitely read

Get tie caught in shredder" (or grinder/combine harvester/[insert machine with similar destructive power as previous].

I think it would be more fitting.

Awesome, haha. I laughed and then chuckled. Great as always. I hope you get to laugh to the bank on this one.


ha ha ha my boyfriend has a little booklet full of tiagrams that he uses everytime he needs to wear one but he always gets so frustrated with the diagrams. and when he's wearing the tie, he constantly bitches about lighting it on fire
i'd totally buy this

different font--plain old times new roman, perhaps? 4, otherwise. :)

maybe now you can work on the bow ties. they always seemed more difficult to tie.


that's exactly what i do

That's a bad knot. I'd not go so far as to burn the tie though. I love ties. Lovely diagram!


visually, it looks like there is too many steps (maybe one). like, if i want anyone to actually be able to see the funniness of the shirt, i have to stand exactly like the models.

perhaps i should start practicing now. akimbo


instructions shirts remind me of those terrible sexual positions shirts with cows and pigs and skeletons and things. this one especially.


I wonder how many people on here are old enough to remember the ad with Jazzy Jeff (as in DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince at least I think it was Jazzy Jeff) - for Converse maybe?
I'm know I'm going to be saying to myself 'and then you grip the hat...

I seriously was not expecting the "burn" step. I laughed out loud (and immediately thought of my bf). I can't stop looking at it, and it makes me smile every time. Standing applause!

Alex- the font is not Times, but it is Vendome. I thought a serif/classier font worked best.

Kristy! You've spotted my inspiration! (That commercial was for Starter® hats) Old chicks UNITE.

Thanks for the comments, folk.

First, I think its awesome, but there are a couple of things...oh you know you deserve this :)

While it probably suits the look of a diagram best, im not used to mezo subs with a single line weight. It also makes the hands look a bit messy. I also wonder why you didnt make the numbers in a uniform position all the way through the design.

Still a 5$, because its got nice colors, it makes me feel warm inside (because I set my tie on fire while wearing it), and overall its still very well drawn.

awesome! and handy... $5


$5! I love the final step! It took the cake.


I usually burn the tie halfway through the tying process, but I should have waited until I was done before I burned it. I feel like I've learned something today. 5$

swweeet.... NOW I get how to put on a tie....$5


if you remove the word "you" it makes it more info design like. i would really like wearing this to work with all the suits around. great 5$

I almost missed the last step, but then title caught me, then I saw the last step, then I saw it was from you. I totally would wear this.

nice and usefull!

What I love about this sub is its subtle finger in the face of "the man" approach. I think it invites the viewer to look more closely after being intrigued by the instructional diagrams for the tie, and thats when the fun happens!


Some Person

i hate ties so much. but why would you take the time to tie it if you were just about to destroy it anyway?

crisco disco

this would have totally helped me right before junior prom 5 years ago. good thing the internet was around then.


Wouldn't it be even more usefull if the text was mirrored? ^^ then you could read it while tie-ing..

jublin profile pic Alumni

so THIS is why you wanted me to model? i thought it was just so you could check out my guns. I bet you wanted to check out sick ass neck and delicately structured finger bones.

yeah... i just said finger bones. GET USED TO IT!
oh and do i even have to say it?

yes i do. 0 and no buy.


hahaha. :D love it.

catdogpigduck profile pic Alumni

yes yes yes, i need this


really cool.. i like it.. i'd buy it


awesome, i like the idea of it getting caught in a shredder. seems to fit the story better.


YES!!! I hate ties. I absolutely despise them, and I hope that they make this shirt so I can get one for my dad, who absolutely hates ties too...


$5. God do I need to learn how to tie a tie.


i think this is sooo cute! i would definetly make a purchase but i think i'd like it without the words. its does fine without them.


I like it, but I wonder if it might work better without the text. It's great anyways though.


I don't think the text is needed.


haha this is funny.


I'd like this design on a tie.


so much better w/o the text


I love the concept, but it seems more like a poster or a notebook or something that people have time to read. When I'm walking by, I don't want every other person to tell me to stop so that they can read my shirt. But I certainly love the concept, and you get a 4 for it.


Very informational. There are a lot of people who don't know how to tie ties, myself being one of them. Now I know.


ha-ha!! good one!


Ha, I love it, especially the burning part!
And now i finaly learned how to make a tie! lol
5 and $
