In the spirit of football season, we'd like to talk about neckwear — say what? According to Crain's Chicago Business, Miami Heat pro Dwyane Wade is teaming up with The Tie Bar — a Chicago-based company — to design his own neckware company called "The Gentleman by Dwyane Wade."

Call it perfect timing for holiday shopping, but the hunky guard's collection will consist of "about 30 bow ties, 15 neckties, 15 pocket squares, tie bars, and cufflinks and will only be available at TheTieBar.com starting in November." To really get the full scoop on this manly collaboration, check out this cool video from the CCB blog. (Crain's Chicago Business)
