These new microfiber ties are available in standard and wide widths, and can be upgraded to silk versions for an additional $10.00.

They are available in standard and narrow widths.
Fractalspin carries many other ties with geeky / electronic music themes as well.

Fractalspin was started back in 2003 by Liz McLean Knight to sell some nerdy jewelry (starting with Liz's own line, Zelle), kickass innovative electronic music, music accessories & toys, amusing tshirts, and neat gadgets that made our daily lives more efficient, entertaining, stylish, worthwhile or any combination of the above.
We like to think of Fractalspin as a pretty cool geek boutique. Here you'll find all sorts of geeky fashion accessories and lifestyle products that aren't lame. Sure there are other geek suppliers online, but we're unique in that we hand pick only those items that are stylish and hip, steering clear of everything cheesy, dorky, or in just plain bad taste. And because of that, it's not just those fashionable geeks in love with us--we appeal to visual artists, musicians, new media artisans, crafty & creative / DIY types, filmmakers, hipsters, nerdsters, technologists, the cool kids, and tons more humans with great taste.
