News & Trends: Leading international luxury shirt brand Thomas Pink is introducing the Commuter Tie as part of its main line for Autumn Winter 2009/2010. A sophisticated 100% silk woven tie and useful mp3 storage device in one, the tie features a small yet subtle pocket on the reverse of the tie designed to perfectly fit the new iPod Nano as well as other smaller mp3 players. The music player is placed in the tie pocket to avoid having expensive devices on display or damaging the line of one's suit.
An extra fabric loop keeps wires (including headphone wires) out of sight and close to the body, leaving hands free to pick up a daily coffee or answer that all important call. And to ensure that it can be worn everyday, the new Commuter tie is available in eight stylish colors: grey, charcoal, purple, blue, green, orange, red and deep pink. The Commuter Tie will be available from Thomas Pink stores from September 2009 or online at www.thomaspink.com, priced at $100. The company is part of LVMH, the world's leading luxury goods conglomerate.
