Types of Neck Ties for Men

Monday, June 13th, 2016

Ties have been a fashion accessory in men’s wardrobes for centuries. The very first ties were pieces of fabric that were literally tied around the neck. Over time, the neck tie has evolved, and today, there are several different types of ties available for men to choose from.

If you’re just venturing into the world of tie wearing, you probably want to know what types of ties are available for you to purchase and wear. To help you with purchasing the right tie for your needs, here’s a guide to introduce you to the different types of neck tie options that are available for men.

The Standard Neck Tie

These are, by far, the most common type of men’s tie. Long pieces of fabric, these ties are placed around the neck and they are tied into a knot, at the center of the neck. They come in a variety of fabrics, including satin, silk, wool, and linen. They also come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, colors, and patterns. The standard neck tie can be knotted in a variety of ways.

The Clip-on Tie

Clip-on ties for men offer the appearance of a traditional neck tie, but they eliminate the need to create a knot. These ties areBlog2already knotted, and they have a metal clip sewn underneath the knot. The tie is affixed to the color of a shirt with this metal clip. They are easy to put on, safe, and comfortable.

The Zipper Tie

These ties also eliminate the need to create a knot, like the clip on tie; however, they are more similar to the traditional neck tie, in that they go around the neck. Once placed around the neck, they are secured in place with a zipper-like device, which is located behind the back of the tie.

Selling Your Best While Looking Your Best

Monday, August 24th, 2015

businessman-necktieThe modern sales professional has a lot of face to face interaction with clients, so it’s no wonder they need to be looking their best at all times. Adding a tie to a repertoire of already professional attire adds another level of depth that makes a great first impression. So the question is: can a sales representative have too many ties? The short answer: of course not!

Some sales representatives may not know this, but you should base the tie color on how vigorous or mild your sales pitch is. If you are going for a more dominant sales pitch and want to flaunt your knowledge on the subject matter, red would be the color to choose. Brighter colors like light blue or yellow would demonstrate a more passive approach in a laid back environment. Of course, you could always go with classic patterns and stripes as well for a more well-rounded approach of both aggressiveness and calm.

From giving a product demonstration to wining and dining clients, looking well-groomed and fashionable shows clients that you are determined and take their business very seriously. Dress your best and find a huge selection of traditional and clip on ties at NecktieEmporium.com!

Choosing A Necktie Wardrobe

Tuesday, March 10th, 2015

CaptureAt some point in life, many men find themselves wearing ties on a daily basis. Whether it is a personal choice to start dressing up or it is a workplace requirement, choosing a wardrobe of ties requires some thought.

Unless there are specific color and design requirements for work, men should choose ties that reflect their personality and coordinate with their clothing. The first step is to set a budget amount to spend. It is easy to find many more ties than the budget allows, but make a priority list of what must be purchased now and what can be purchased later on a whim. When starting out on a smaller budget, aim for ties that are solid colors. They can be neutral tones, pastel colors, classic colors or dark colors. Alternately, choose one of each. For example, a man who has a budget limit that allows only four ties to start may choose gray, pastel yellow, royal blue and dark red.

When it is possible to choose a few designs in addition to a few solid colors, stripes are a safe choice for most workplaces. If the workplace encourages trendy designs or individual style, find what is most appealing. Many beginners find clip-on ties easier to use when they first start wearing ties.

Do you change shirts 10 times before picking one and then change your mind again at the last minute? A tie shortcut can prevent your tardiness.

4. Your Mother-In-Law Bought You a Hideous Tie

If your in-laws are visiting, you’d better go ahead and wear that horrendous tie, so you won’t hurt anyone’s feelings. Taking along a clip-on or zipper tie along with you makes it easy to quickly change in the car.

5. You Drive While Drinking Coffee

Everyone who drinks coffee while driving has spilled some on a favorite tie at some point. Keep a clip-on or zipper tie in your glove compartment, so you can fix the problem quickly and without embarrassment.
