Designer Hugh Simms was a hotelie at Cornell's School of Hospitality Administration and later studied fashion at FIDM in Los Angeles (alma mater of Lauren Conrad)—and it seems that his latest creation, the tie-with-a-bottle-opener-built-in takes inspiration from both sides of his diverse educational background. The 2" wide cotton neckties—which are priced at $75 and come in three colorways—come with a hidden bottle opener inside.
