Neck ties were actually invented by muggers, as they make such convenient handles.

Amazingly, I've only spilled stuff onto my neckties once or twice in the past 30-plus years. Considering my tendency to clumsiness, this isn't bad

I don't mind wearing a tie, and if the job requires one, I'll wear one. I don't do clip-on ties, nor will I wear ties that are leather, wood (there was a fad for ties made up of real wood, using veneers), nor bolos, ties that have pictures of scantily clad women, the ones that light up, etc.

Any Northeastern US area jobs? I'm currently unemployed.
