The thing I like about the choice of tie for the Tenth Doctor’s appearance in the 50th Anniversary Special is that it’s a cheap and cheerful cosplay option.
Looking into the future, when the tie is finally discontinued, there will no doubt be copies available, which ironically will sell for two or three times the price of what they are replicating.
Well, someone has spotted that you can already get a knock-off version of the tie - for HALF the price - from Matalan!
Being one of those commercial copies of a rival’s design, it does naturally differ notably in its appearance.
The flowers do, however, have a distinct resemblance to the St George tie. There is no doubt that is what they are aiming for!
Like the original there are dark leaves under the flowers, though not as bronze as the St George.
The flowers are in distinct bands, not unlike the St George tie worn in Utopia!
For £7 you can’t go wrong, and as a curiosity, I can’t resist ordering one.
