Fashion FYI: Tie one on with Nick Cannon at Macy's

| Thursday, Sept. 26, 2013, 8:55 p.m.

Macy's is launching a line of neckwear by entertainer Nick Cannon. The South Hills Village location is one of the few stores nationwide to carry the line. They will also be available online. The ties come in fashion-forward prints, bold colors and a variety of textures. They retail for $65 and are made of silk.

“My style has always been about individuality, confidence and expression,” Cannon says. “With my new line of ties available exclusively at Macy's, I am thrilled I can now offer shoppers across the country access to spectacular prints and bold colors to create a look that's all their own.”
