This week’s guest is Jeff Bontrager, founder and creator of Neckitecture, your brand new source of custom neck ties. Jeff sits down with Jon and talks about why he developed a passion for neckties (especially in the casual landscape of the Rocky Mountain West), his process for creating new ties, the unusual materials he uses currently, the unusual materials he’d like to use someday (edible neckties, anyone?), and how following a passion in your spare time can become a grind.
Jeff is a funny, warm, genuinely good dude who happens to make eclectic, interesting, and off-kilter neckwear. This chat covers a lot of ground, and mostly serves as a nice way to cap off the first year of the Jon of All Trades Podcast. Two dudes who like to riff bounce off each other, share a few laughs, and promote a brand new venture. That’s what we’re all about here.
