But the ties and T-shirts from Swipe Apparel are kind of genius.
The idea behind the SwipeTie ($39.95) is simple: a silk necktie with a patch of microfiber fabric, the same stuff used for lens-cleaning cloths, behind the tip of the tie, at the ready to wipe smudges and greasy fingerprints from the screen of a smartphone or tablet. The company also makes a SwipeTee ($24.95): a cotton T-shirt with a similarly built-in swatch of microfiber.
There are 10 color and pattern choices for the tie and five T-shirt designs at www.swipeswipe.com.
