Baby Spitup. As weird as that sounds that's the genesis of these Shark Tank ties. Back in 2015 Kevin and I both started having kids, and after going home from a long day of working in real estate our wives would hand us our beautiful babies...... who would immediately regurgitate milk and pureed turkey all over us. The shirt washed. The tie didn't. So over the next 12 months we developed a crazy durable "tough tie" that could not only be machine washed, but also fixed all the other dumb stuff with traditional ties. We used an iron-lock stitch instead of a slip stitch, we added a microfiber tip for you to clean your phone or glasses, and we sourced a special liquid repellent fabric to make it even more spill-proof.
