Ties are theoretically the most cliche holiday gift for men, but I don't mind them - they're a way for fashion-unambitious men like me to get a little dressy. Cyberoptix Tie Lab, run by Detroit designer Bethany Shorb, offers a stylistically coherent line that still manages to appeal to a broad range of personalities, from nerds to punks to steampunks to respectable types. Their gift packaging upgrades are quite nice, and they also offer bulk purchases for groomsmen.

Here's what I mean about range. They can do ornate and beautiful:

Simple and beautiful:

Simple and nerdy:

Elaborate and nerdy:

And while they advertise themselves as a tie lab, they do scarves as well.
