LONDON, Dec 7, 2009 / FW/ — George Clooney’s Ryan Bingham in “Up in the Air” might be an extreme case of a commuter, but there are a lot men out there who has to travel for business.

And if you’re wondering what to give him for Christmas, look no further because there is the Thomas Pink Commuter Tie and the Rimowa Cabin Multiwheel luggage.

Technology has transformed the modern commute but it has also created a dilemma – how best to store gadgets safely and stylishly on the go? With this in mind, leading international luxury shirt brand, Thomas Pink, is introducing the Commuter Tie as part of its main line for Autumn Winter 2009/2010.

A sophisticated 100% silk woven tie and useful mp3 storage device in one, The Commuter Tie was previously only available as a limited edition. Keeping up with technology miniaturization, the popular Commuter Tie has been updated to perfectly fit the new iPod(R) Nano as well as other smaller mp3 players.

The clever new design features a small yet subtle pocket on the reverse of the tie. The music player is placed in the pocket to avoid having expensive devices on display or damaging the line of one’s suit.

An extra fabric loop keeps wires (including headphone wires) out of sight and close to the body, leaving hands free to pick up a daily coffee or answer that all important call.
