The gents at Hill Side just dropped this throwback graphic tie into their Hickoree’s shop, and it might be the non-plaid summer tie we’ve been waiting for.

The pattern might look familiar from 60s-era souvenir shirts, but taken in small quantities it can add a bit of nostalgic charm to just about anything. (We suggest a plain white shirt sans jacket, or a cotton suit if the heat lets up.) Because of the large-print graphic, it’s perfect for all manner of GQ-style pattern-mixing if you feel like going the extra mile.

And if you’re really committed, an actual trip to Jamaica wouldn’t hurt.
