For the historically inclined architect—or the architecturally inclined historian—what better way to sharpen your evening (or daytime) attire than with bow ties based on 1917 blueprints? Digitally restored from original prints by William E. Higginbotham and William G. Malcomson, each tie traces the outline of Detroit’s Cass Technical High School, which was damaged in a fire and subsequently abandoned. The sophisticated neck adornments, available in black, silver, and cream, are made from vegan-friendly microfiber and hand-printed with nontoxic, water-based inks.
