Thanksgiving is supposed to be a time of, y'know, giving thanks, but more often than not it’s a way for your family to scrutinize your existence after not seeing you for a couple of months. Hence, there’s a lot of pressure to “do it right”, showing up with a new girlfriend everybody approves of, a Harry & David basket of obscenely-priced fruit, and some non-denominational jokes for diffusing tension…or, at least not to embarrass yourself entirely, depending on the scope of your goals.
One holiday tradition you’re not looking to repeat? The part where you lean forward to serve some cranberry sauce and end up dying your tie a festive shade of never-going-to-come-out-in-the-wash red. Luckily, the exceedingly clever folks at Zeke Stokes have come up with a solution– stately, made-in-the-USA ties that feature three hidden buttonholes on the skinny end, made for buttoning to your shirt. There’s still a keeper-loop on the front end, too, so the whole of your tie stays securely (yet subtly) fastened in place, regardless of how much leaning, serving, and passing of plates you end up doing. So go ahead, raise your hand for seconds, pass the potatoes, and even volunteer to help with dishes afterwards. How’s that for showing the folks how clever you’ve become? Get it here.
