Markets In Everything: The New Congruent Tie
APPLE VALLEY, MN. (WCCO) ― Eric Glennie, of Apple Valley, MN, came up with what he calls a "congruent tie," where the stripes of the knot go in the same direction as the rest of the tie (see picture above). For all the years that men have been wearing neckties, it seems no one has figured out how to get the stripes in the knot going the same direction as the rest of the tie...until now.
Eric Glennie, of Apple Valley, was tinkering around in his home after being laid off from his job in a trucking firm when he came up with the solution. The result is what he's calling the "congruent tie." "The stripes in the tie knot have always gone the wrong way," said Glennie. "I think it's over 100 years, so this is something that is totally unique, totally different. It could be a paradigm shift in menswear."
