Laurent Laporte, author of the always enjoyable Where is the Cool (which totally had that name first, btw) recently got in touch to let me know that he had come into possession of a large surplus of deadstock Pierre Balmain ties from the 1960s, and that he’s now selling them under the moniker Autour De Ton Cou (translated: around your neck). The ties, all of which were knit in France, come in a wide selection of colors, measure roughly two inches at their widest point and are in absolute stunning condition. Despite all that, Mr. Laporte is only charging $17 apiece plus shipping (hell of a guy, huh?). Needless to say, these won’t be around for long, so if you want one, click that link to get yours while you still can. Thanks for the heads-up Laurent.
