Method and apparatus for restraining a necktie Patent #: 5815836
AbstractA necktie with fixing device embodies a simple, self-contained, convenient and more economic way to maintain a necktie in place. The fixing device comprises an anchoring member that is secured to the rear surface of the wide end of the necktie, an elastic member secured to center of the anchoring member, a small magnet that is secured to the end of the elastic member opposite that secured to the anchoring member, and a hook extending from the magnet. The elastic member is long enough to allow the magnet to engage a zipper, belt buckle or other metallic fastening element of a clothing article, and allow the hook to removably engage fastening elements of clothing articles such as zippers, belt buckles and buttons. The combined securing action of the magnet and hook allow the fixing device to maintain the wide end of a necktie in place. The hook, when inserted in the aperture in the zipper handle of a fly-type trousers closure, also insures that the zipper will not inadvertently open, thereby preventing the embarrassment of the wearer associated therewith.
