If you’re a fan of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, but your weekday schedule involves corporate demons rather than literal ones, you might be interested in these new neckties.
Haruyama Trading Co. recently introduced eight new Demon Slayer ties. The neckties feature the colors and patterns worn by anime series protagonists Tanjiro Kamado, Nezuko Kamado, Zenitsu Agatsuma, and Inosuke Hashibira.
There are two tie designs for each character. If you like Tanjiro, but don’t like green, they also have one in blue. Nezuko’s ties are pink, and reddish-pink. Zenitsu’s are yellow, and dark blue. Inosuke’s ties are blue, and black.
These ties are really quite stealthy, tasteful, and subtle. They would probably be appropriate in many office settings.
For example, the character’s picture is on the tail end of the tie, rather than the front. That means that it would be nearly invisible most of the time. (If the tail of your tie is visible most of the time, you’re probably doing it wrong.) The front side doesn’t give much of a clue as to its anime origins.
The ties cost 3190 yen, or about $30.45 in U.S. dollars.
Generally speaking, Haruyama is better known as a clothing store chain which specializes in suits and business wear, rather than as an anime fan goods supplier. They have branches throughout Japan.
The Kimetsu no Yaiba neckties are available online through the company’s Perfect Suit Factory (P.S.FA) brand.
The neckties are part of a collaboration with the creators of Demon Slayer. If your “office” consists of a telecommute from a room in your home, Haruyama also sells a variety of Demon Slayer T-shirts.
If you wander around the online catalog, you’ll see that Haruyama has done collaborations with other anime series as well.
But, if you need a tie for whatever reason, you’ll probably look as sharp as Tanjiro’s katana in one of these.
