Love science? Love bow ties? How about Bill Nye? You’re in luck.

There’s a belief that says everything old becomes new again at some point. If you’re a fan of the ’90s, you’re possibly a fan, or at least aware, of Bill Nye, “The Science Guy,” who is coming out with something new (but old). He is famous for his educational science show on PBS, and a big part of his image going back to his early days are the unique bow ties he has publicly worn over the years. Well, now you can emulate his look with a specially designed selection of limited-edition bow ties that bear his name.

The product has been announced in line with the release of his new book called “Unstoppable” which is focused on the telling of climate change issues. Nye has managed to stay in the stream public consciousness over the years with a steady stream of statements surrounding climate change.

The ties were developed with the help of Nick Graham, the founder of Joe Boxer. There are 12 designs in all, and they will be available for purchase at retail locations that are science-oriented. This represents only a small sample of all the ties that Nye has collected over the years. Nye’s personal collection of bow ties reportedly numbers at around 400, which he started collecting back in his high school days. At this time, there is no word on any further upcoming ties to try to close that gap anytime soon.

If you are a fan of interesting patterns in your bow tie selections, you will enjoy this lineup. You can choose from stripes, polka dots, silhouettes of Bill Nye, a pattern that says “Science Rules,” and elements from the periodic table. The price is set at $50, and you can rest assured in the fact that 10 percent of the proceeds go toward finding extraterrestrial life and furthering human travel to Mars and other planets.
