MEET THE MAGNETIE: THE NECKTIE REINVENTED

The Magnetie is a hassle free necktie designed for the person who hates carrying around a bunch of unnecessary neckties on business trips, likes products that are efficient and practical, and appreciates a mix of fashion and function. The Magnetie is the ultimate solution to common necktie issues, such as the age old problem of how to tie the knot so the tail of the tie is long enough to fit in the loop (fabric ring) on the rear of the tie. Just tie the Magnetie like any other necktie, lift the display side of the necktie in the air, bring the tail towards the back of the tie, and it will attract and stay in place everytime!

Thanks to our age of innovation and websites like Indiegogo we now have a platform to do all of these things for you and more! We believe that all the extra gadgets and gizmos that go into making your tie lay flat, stay in place, and look sharp, should be included into one simple and smart design. The Magnetie was created with one goal in mind; to be a functional, efficient, and stylish all-in-one alternative to the traditional necktie.

 

MAGNETIE GIVES YOU OPTIONS: CHOOSE YOUR FAVORITES

Our Fall line exclusive to Indiegogo comes in 4 different reversible color options as well as 4 standard one-sided Magnetie designs for a total of 12 different style options. To help organize and creatively display all of your great new Magnetie Neckties we also have the Magnetie Tie Rack which holds up to 100 Magneties on one sleek simple design which will compliment and fit comfortably in any closet horizontally or vertically.

WHY MAGNETIE IS BETTER: A NECKTIE DESIGNED FOR YOU

Never again will you have to worry about being too tall or too short to buy a certain type of necktie. Paying extra and searching endlessly for custom necktie lengths is a thing of the past. Also when you struggle to find the right style you’re looking for, with our Reversible Necktie designs you will have twice the options, which will go with twice the outfits. And at a price point that most department stores are selling One-Sided Neckties at, it’s tough to lose when buying your first Reversible Magnetie!

HERE ARE SOME MAIN BENEFITS AND FEATURES

1) Pack Half the Neckties for the Business Traveler- Need six neckties for your business trip? Only pack three reversible Magnetie neckties and you’re ready for the same trip. That is also half the neckties in your wardrobe at home.

2)  An Instant Solution to a Stained Necktie- Magnetie necktie can offer something no other necktie can, an instant solution to a soiled necktie. Dressed perfectly for that important meeting and dropped some food on your tie? A simple flip and you’re ready for your pitch.

3) Second Chance/Convenient- Never find yourself at an event wearing the same tie as your boss, relative or father-in-law. Simply step out, flip the tie and you’re ready to stand out at your event.

4) Eliminates the Need for Tie Clips, Bars and Tacks- The Magnetie is the ultimate all-in-one solution to many common necktie issues that until now, have been being remedied by using gizmos and gadgets to patch the problem but not SOLVE the problem. The Magnetie is the way the necktie should have been designed in the first place.

5) Allows for Mix and Match Creativity- Our future designs will be dotted on the front and paisley on the back for example. Imagine a white tie on the front for those fun in the sun occasions and black tie on the back for those serious occasions. The options are endless with our designs.

6) Keeps the Tie In Place Every time- The patented freely moving rare earth magnets retain the necktie tail in place every time, regardless of the amount of tie tail remaining after tying, which is perfect for tall men and for those who like a large knot. Also, our additional disk that can be placed behind the wearer’s shirt can also serve as a restraint to keep the tie in place center of the dress shirt all the time.

FAQ's

If you have a question, hopefully we’ve already answered it below. If not, please contact us at: info@themagnetie.com

 

Can I remove the magnets or replace them?

Yes, each Reversible Magnetie has a small 1/4" opening on the edge of the tie roughly 8 inches from the tip of the tail. Remove or replace the magnets through this opening. Replacement magnets are available for order by emailing us at info@themagnetie.com.

Can I iron my Magnetie necktie?

This is not recommended. Like any silk necktie, an Iron can damage the tie. An less risky alternative is to hang the tie in the bathroom while you shower or use a professional steamer to loosen up the wrinkles.

Does the Magnets set off the security at the airport?

No, we have tested our Magnetie Neckties at the O'hare airport and they do not set off the metal detectors.

Can I dry clean my Magnetie Necktie?

Yes, but only as a last resort. Dry cleaning your necktie at the neighborhood cleaner usually ends in disappointment, mostly because they tend to over-press ties. We suggest removing the Magnets before hand.

Is it possible to see the reverse side of the necktie after tying?

No, the reversible Magnetie necktie is stitched in a way that only the chosen display side of the necktie is visible after tying.
 
Is wearing the Magnetie necktie hazardous to your health?
 
According to the World Health Organization, there are no hazardous risks associated with similar therapeutic magnets and they are recognized as generally safe for children and adults. However, if you have a Pacemaker or a Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator you should not wear a Magnetie as the magnets could cause interference with cardiac devices and pose a potential hazard. WARNING – Magnets may pose serious risks for patients with pacemakers and ICDs. Do not use if you have a pacemaker or an implantable cardioverter defibrillator.

What is the size of the Magnetie?

The Magnetie neckties are the same dimensions as a standard necktie, that is 59”L x 3½”W1 x 1¼”W2.

Do you have a patent on the magnetie invention?

Yes, Patent Pending
