Take A Nap On Your Tie

The inflatable Pillow Tie, which looks like your typical fabric necktie, makes it easy to take naps during long, boring business meetings.

SALT LAKE CITY (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Most functions that require a necktie deserve to be slept through.

That’s the motto behind the Pillow Tie, a necktie that can be blown up and used to take a sneaky impromptu nap in ultimate comfort.

Creator Tom Bowen says the microfiber silk ties are guaranteed to be “soft on the face,” so getting some shut eye in any boring situation will be a cinch.

He explains, “When you get sleepy in a business meeting or at church you’re set. It’s making everyday activities a lot easier to bear. There’s some people that really do need a nap to get through the day.”

Bowen himself has used the Pillow Tie to catch sleep on a bus in China and at various airports.

Because the ties look sharp, men can legitimately rotate them into their normal business attire.

For instance, Bowen thinks the inflatable necktie would be perfect for lazy TV suit Michael Scott on The Office.
