This bow tie is SO fantastic! I was blown away when I received it at the quality of the fabric and stitching. My boyfriend's face lit up when he opened it. He loves it so much, I think I'm going to have to order a matching tie! Al was so nice to speak with, and made sure the bow tie arrived in time for a specific event. I would highly recommend purchasing something from Nekopod.

"What does nekopod mean? What's that squid-cat thing in your logo?"
Well, that squid-cat thing in our logo is exactly what "Nekopod" means! Nekopod is a portmanteau of "Neko", the Japanese word for cat, and "Cephalopod", a member of the family Cephalopodus such as octopus, squid, and cuttlefish.
"Adding 'Neko' on to 'Cephalopod' doesn't make it mean 'Squid-cat'. Cephalopod means 'Head-Foot', so your name means 'Cat-Foot'. AND you're mixing roots."
We know. Some debate took place with regards to the name, but ultimately it was decided that it was the only easy-to-pronounce and easy-to-remember solution. Nekkolopod would have dodged meaning "Cat-Foot" but people stumbled when pronouncing it. Cephaloneko sounds dumb and only dodges the "Cat-Foot" problem by becoming "Cat-Head" instead. So Cat-Foot it is, even if we do occasionally find dead mice in our shoes.
"But you're combining Japanese and Greek!"
Yup. Terrible, isn't it?
