Trapped in time with the Cassette Ties.

There are tons of geeky clothing options available for those who just have to wear their personality on their sleeve. But what if you want to go above and beyond “normal geeks”? What if you want a piece of geeky clothing that will make even the most hardcore geeks step back, double take, and gawk? Well then, you my friend need a Cassette Tie.

Constructed from a 50% tape cassette tape and 50% polyester blend, these ties are actually quite simple and pretty “low-tech”. After turning the cassette of your choice into a tie, a basic hand-made reader is all that is needed to pick up and play audio information still readable on the tie. How cool is that!

The ties are the brain child of Alyce Santoro and Julio Cesar as they tried to come up with something unique, retro, and eco-friendly all in one fell swoop. And succeed they did. The ties are available at Surpermarket HQ for $90. The reader on the other hand will involve a few displays of craftiness from you. Making your own Cassette Tie reader isn’t hard and can be done with any old Walkman player. Watch the vid below for the full rundown.
