At A Gentleman's Attire, we want to help promote the importance of appearance for young professional men. And one thing that often gets overlooked early on in our careers are ties. It takes a while for most of us to build up a diverse collection of ties to rotate through. I even have a couple friends who have less than 5, meaning they repeat at least one tie every work week. But while I tell them that this isn't enough they don't seem to care.
The average range of ties varies greatly; some men have over 100 and some blue collar workers only have a handful. But if you're working in a professional or business setting, you should aim for more than less. This will give you more options to match to your outfit for the day, and a tie can make or break an outfit. A tie pattern that clashes with your well thought out ensemble will make you look like an amateur. But even a bland outfit can pop and make you look like a style pro with the proper choice of neckwear.
But building up this diverse and versatile collection will be pretty expensive right? WRONG! This is where Ties.com comes in. They have a vast selection of quality neckties in all ranges of color, length, pattern, and material. And the best part? The prices. The most expensive ties they have sell for under $60, and they have plenty of ties marked down to less than $10! They also have sales fairly often and are currently having a sitewide 50% off sale until 2017. Add this to free shipping within the US, and you can get a comical amount of ties for almost nothing.
They offer a better deal than most clothing retailers and department stores, as well as a wider selection that you can browse while sitting at home. When I used to shop for ties at Nordstrom's, Macy's, and other department stores, I would get the impression that I would have to spend at least $40 for quality ties with nice patterns. But Ties.com has proved me wrong. They even offer the option to convert many of their ties into clip ons in the length you desire. This costs $10 extra and these ties can't be returned, so keep that in mind if that's something that interests you.
You can choose to organize their products by pattern, color, or material. Which can make things very convenient if you have a more specific idea of what you want.
You can also get most of their standard width ties in skinnier versions. While skinny ties don't go with as many outfits and appear a bit more informal, most men should still have a few in their wardrobe to wear once in a while. The general rule is for your tie to be about the width of the lapel on your jacket. But matching the width of your tie to your frame is also important; so larger men wear more traditional ties while slim folks can wear skinny ties more often.
Ties.com also offers a bunch of different humorous novelty ties. While novelty ties might be frowned upon in some workplaces, they can also brighten up your day and add some humor to the workplace. Make sure to use discretion if your employer isn't one that would be very supportive of you wearing a distracting or possibly inappropriate tie while in the office. You can also wear them at holiday or costume themed events. The print below is of a caffeine molecule.
There are ties for every major holiday like 4th of July, Christmas, New Years, St. Patricks Day, Valentines, etc. And then there are a bunch of random ones such as the caffeine molecule and this motherboard print below.
Whatever the occasion, Ties.com is sure to have you covered. And most likely at lower prices and more convenience. So give them a try next time you're in the market for a new tie.
