Review: Kamen Rider Drive Tomari Shinnosuke Red/Pink Skinny Tie

This tie is made from silk. It’s a dark red with a pattern of gray, pink, and navy stripes. The inside lining is black. It’s 5cm/2in wide at its widest point and 144cm/about 58″ long.

There’s not really a lot to say about this item – it’s a nice tie, and the silk definitely looks and feels better than polyester that Bandai has used previously. However, the non-distinct patterning isn’t really enough to justify the price. I’m not sad I have it, but I definitely don’t feel the need to get another one.

To note, Shinnosuke’s clothing line contains both skinny ties and wider ties in a variety of colors, so be careful of which you’re buying if you’re looking for a particular look.
