We may live in a casual world these days, but wearing a tie is far from a lost art. Besides the typical business suit needs, many wear ties with distinctive patterns/designs to express their individuality or to proudly promote their favorite brands, sports teams, television show, or hobbies. As Mustang owners we’ve been known to rock a Mustang tie or two over the years, but designs have been far and few between for us of the Ford faith. That’s quickly becoming a moot point today as the neckwear fanatics at Cyberoptix TieLab understand the need for exclusive tie, pocket square, and scarf designs for all sorts of enthusiasts and not just us car junkies. From space exploration to animals, science and technology, and music, Cyberoptix offers hundreds of designs that will tie in (pun intended!) with your favorite hobby, career, or event. Yes, Cyberoptix even has wedding packages they can create with their designs!

Cyberoptix offers a multitude of automotive themed apparel, and they should, as they are based out of the Motor City—Detroit, Michigan USA! With so much automotive history right around them to inspire its designs it is no wonder car enthusiasts from around the world are ordering up Cyberoptix ties! Offering such designs as Cargyle (using a drawing of a ’65 Mustang convertible), various racing stripe motifs, tire treads, gear shift knobs, race track maps, and our personal favorite—Spark Plug, which is patterned using a ’67 Mustang ignition wiring diagram—the designs are witty and playful, but can certainly be utilized in a business environment if your business is automotive based. The ties are available in microfiber and silk, while the pocket squares are microfiber and scarves are silk. Ties can be ordered in several widths (skinny, narrow, and standard) and come in 58-inch lengths. XL sizes are available that are 62-inches in length as well. Some designs are available in bowtie, while youth and toddler sizing is available as well, perfect for matching group events like weddings. Most importantly, everything is hand sewn, printed, and packaged right here in the USA. Gift packaging is available too! Check out some of the more popular Ford/Mustang themed designs we profile below.

We sampled some of Cyberoptix’s automotive themed neckwear that we felt had a Mustang or Ford theme in both silk and microfiber materials and the product quality is top notch. From left to right are Cargyle, Spark Plug, Le Mans Mirage, Side Oiler, Le Mans First Place, White & Blue, Cargyle, and Spark Plug. As you can see by the Cargyle and Spark Plug models, some ties are offered in different base and ink combinations as well.
Many of the Cyberoptix neckties are available with matching pocket squares to finish off your suit appropriately. As you can see in our lead image, our model is wearing the black Cargyle Mustang tie and matching pocket square.
Some of our favorites from Cyberoptix include the Cargyle Mustang tie and the Le Mans Mirage. The Cargyle pattern tricks the eye, but upon closer inspection the Mustang is clearly visible, whereas the Le Mans Mirage offers that classic car guy cool of Gulf Oil like coloring.
