Thanks to the gentlemen behind Not a brand, just ties, surfers can now look as cool as surfers do, even when stuck in a cubicle all day.
Living in the seaside town of the Hague, the fun-loving guys behind this brand, that isn’t a brand, were looking for the perfect fun ties to spice up their business suit and board shorts. As ties tend to be boring, they are a thankful object to get revised and modernised.
The blue tie pictured above was inspired by the concrete blocks that form the entry to the harbour of Scheveningen, where one of the gents’ favourite surf spots is located. The other designs currently available are inspired by warships, driftwood, tire tracks, and more surfing.
Not a brand, just ties really does not want to be a brand. It’s just two guys who want to sell nice ties, and leave it at that. I like a straight forward concept just as much as the next person, though I’m curious to see whether they won’t continue onto other accessories as well at some point. These designs could definitely pull it off!
