SKINNYFATTIES is a new business that specializes in tailoring your favorite wide neckties. They provide an eco-friendly and money-conscious alternative to buying new skinny ties at retail value.
Founder and designer, Joshua Adam Brueckner lost his full-time job and didn’t have the money to buy job interview clothes. Instead, he learned how to tailor huge second-hand button-up shirts to fit. Then after finding a box of fat ties in his closet, he immediately thought, “I KNOW there is a way to make these cool ties skinny!”.
He did just that and became a real hit friends, one thing led to another and SKINNYFATTIES was born, becoming Joshua’s full-time gig. For each tie purchased and every tie tailored, a $1 donation is made to Career Gear, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that helps men transition into the workforce.

“Our food philosophy is inspired by the French: to eat as an art form and derive unabashed pleasure from gastronomy without batting an eye! We focus here on little bites of luxury. To us that means that our chocolate creations are crafted from high quality couverture chocolate (the creme de la creme!). Even the smallest ingredient details are sourced meticulously, for example– the salt atop our Colette Truffle [a French caramel style truffle] is no ordinary table salt, but rather it is Fleur de Sel de Guerande, the finest of sea salts from the marshes in Brittany, France”.
