Holiday Gift Idea For The Hedgie Who Has Everything

Nov 13 2007 | 12:25pm ET

How do you shop for the man who has everything? More specifically, how do you shop for the hedge fund manager who has a multi-million-dollar mansion in Greenwich or East Hampton (or both!), a pied-à-terre in town, a boat, a Gulfstream, a dozen cars, a high thread count, a roomful of Manets, and a couple of billion hidden under the mattress?

Spoiled children and partners in extramarital affairs, Capital Ties has the answer for you. The New York-based “neckwear design and manufacturing company” has unveiled the perfect sartorial gift: the hedge fund manager necktie. Or, more accurately, “Hedgehogs.”

The bright-red silk tie features adorable little hedgehogs swimming is a sea of alphas, betas and deltas, “a tribute to those richly-paid experts in the use of quantitative analysis.”

This year’s fashion highlight is available just in time for the holiday season at Capital Ties’ Web site, at the deeply discounted price of $49.95 through Dec. 15 (procrastinators will have to cough up $65).
