When to Use a Clip-on Tie for a Kid

Monday, March 28th, 2016

4If you are a parent, you know the hassle that is often involved with getting your little ones dressed. A task that is as simple as putting on a pair of pants, a shirt, shoes, and socks can be a real battle and can take what seems like forever to achieve. Add any other element to the mix and getting your child dressed can go from an already frustrating experience to one that can cause serious meltdowns (for both your child and for you).

If you’re the parent of a boy, there’s no doubt that there is going to be sometime in his young life when he is going to have to wear a tie. Trying to put a standard tie on any little boy can be an act that requires two or more adults, and maybe even a referee. However, thanks to kid’s clip-on ties, getting a tie on your little guy doesn’t have to be a huge ordeal. In fact, a clip-on tie can be even easier to put on your little man than putting on his shoes!

When would your little boy have to wear a clip-on tie, you ask? Here’s a look at some times when a clip on tie will come in pretty handy:

  • If he has to wear a uniform to school, a clip-on tie will sure beat a standard neck tie.
  • If he is asked to be a ring bearer or play some other important part in a wedding, you’ll be thankful for the clip-on tie.
  • If he is going to a formal event, such as a fancy holiday dinner or to Easter mass, again, you will be glad that you have a clip-on tie to put on him instead of a standard tie.

It’s really true: A clip-on tie can be a real life saver for parents of little boys.

Novelty Ties: ‘Tis the Season to Enjoy

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

Novelty TiesIt’s okay to tie on a little fun during this holiday season. Novelty ties are a great way to add personality and fun to your wardrobe, so break out the last gag gift tie you received and wear it with pride. Here are a few upcoming occasions that are perfect for this type of fun.

Veterans Day is coming up fast. It is also one of the best days after the Fourth to break out the flags. Wear them loud and proud, November 11.

Thanksgiving is all about fellowship. Hopefully you will be dressed down for your turkey day, but the days before it are ripe for food tie fashion. You don’t have to be a turkey with it either. Just check out our beer barrel clip on.

Christmas ties are a classic. You will certainly see wrapping paper, fir trees, lights, and bells galore this season just like last season and the one before that. Take your tie to the level. A tie that actually lights up is fun, festive, and actually exciting.

As we take holidays and days off this time of year, casual Fridays get lost. That makes these fresh ties a great way to reclaim the spirit and stay at the relative level of dress the week demands. They are also a great way to continue the business conversations that keep professional relationships profitable; but don’t take out word for it. Try one on yourself this season.

Summer Wardrobe 101

Monday, May 20th, 2013

Summer is quickly approaching, and the time to change up your wardrobe is closing in. Many men are often faced with hard decisions on how to upgrade their summer wardrobe and look their best when temperatures get their hottest. From summer friendly suiting to casual breathable shirts, there’s a lot of possibilities that will keep you looking dapper and keep you cool all summer long:

Mens style tips!

  • Just because the temperatures are reaching triple digits doesn’t mean you can’t look your best. Knit ties, clip on ties, and bowties are all still extremely friendly summer accessories that can be worn for every season. For a hip and edgier look, consider a fitted short sleeve oxford shirt with a bowtie. Not only will the sleeveless shirt keep you cool, but in combination with a bowtie you’ll be traditionally preppy with a modern edge.
  • Cotton, linen, summer wool, and seersucker suiting are the best choice when staying dapper this summer. It’s important to find a summer suit that is breathable and comfortable. Consider wearing lighter colors, as they don’t retain too much heat.
  • Shorts are a staple in summer style, but those shorts that go past your knees are not as good looking as you think. Shorts are called shorts for a reason, and a great pair of shorts should be plain front and end just above the knee.
  • Oxford and linen shirts are a staple in summer menswear, stock up on a few colors and always look put together, even when you just want to pass out in front of the pool.

Make this your best dressed summer, and bask in sartorial glory. Shop a wide selection of summer friendly clip on ties, neckties, zipper ties and more at NeckTieEmporium.com. We keep you dapper for less!

How to Choose a Bow Tie

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

Wearing a bow tie may be foreign for many men, but this sartorial accessory is a classic staple in menswear and for good reason. The pointers that go with wearing a standard necktie are also applicable when it comes to the bow tie as well. If you’re interested in wearing a bow tie for men but don’t know what to look for, follow this simple guide:

bow tie for men

  • There are 3 types of bow tie; the self tie, clip on bowtie, and the pre-tied bow tie. Many men prefer the self-tie versions of the bow tie, but tying the perfect bow can be tedious and nearly impossible. Clip on bowties are great choices for both men and children alike.
  • The width of your bowtie should never overcome the width of your face and should be smaller than the width of your collar. An oversized bowtie will look ridiculous and unflattering.
  • Bowties come in a variety of fabrics and patterns. Flannel, cotton and seersucker are popular choices for daily worn bowties whereas silk is essential for formal and classier events. Patterns like paisley and stripes are also popular when it comes to bowties.
  • Choose a bow tie that correlates well with the colors in your outfit. Never choose as bowtie that is too bright and overpowering. Like most accessories in men’s style, bowties should emphasize your style and not overshadow your entire outfit.
  • A bow tie can be worn for a variety of occasions. Pairing a bow tie or clip on bow tie with a suit or tuxedo is an excellent choice for more formal events. A bow tie worn with jeans and sports coat is also a dapper and popular choice for more laid-back occasions.

Pattern Mixing 101: How to Stand Out

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

iStock_000020458271XSmallA solid color tie and solid color dress shirt are most commonly the clothing choices for most men; however, if you’re bored by this traditional look, perhaps pattern mixing will excite you when it comes to dressing again. Patterns are about personality, and mixing patterns is a surefire way to separate you from the norm. Whether you’re looking for the perfect shirt to wear with your collection of clip on ties or bowties, NeckTieEmporium.com can help. This is our guide on how to mix patterns!

  • When deciding on what patterns you want to mix, start with your shirt. Determine what the dominant color is in the pattern and choose a tie that accents that color. If you’re shirt is navy checkered, a striped tie with navy in it is a perfect choice.
  • If you’re shirt has stripes, avoid wearing a tie that has the same thickness of stripes printed on it. Wearing two off the same size or weight patterns looks extremely busy and not flattering.
  • Polka dots look fantastic with stripes or plaid patterns, just be sure to compliment the colors in some way.
  • Thick stripes look great with smaller checkered shirts. A Gingham plaid shirt and preppy striped tie is a perfect match that is sure to turn some heads.
  • When it comes to mixing patterns, have fun, but be sure to put a little thought into what looks good together. The idea is to look effortless and cool, not eccentric and unkempt.

If you’re looking to turn some heads and dress to reflect your personality, pattern mixing is the perfect idea. We carry a large selection of clip on ties and cheap bow ties that will open the door to many sartorial options.
