Men’s Neckwear and the Look of Luxury

Monday, March 7th, 2016

Luxury does indeed mean different things to different people and much of that interpretation comes down to the way someone1was raised and what their lifestyle is like. For someone who grew up in a working-class family, luxury would be winning $5 million from the lotto. For someone who grew up in a wealthy family, $5 million is just a drop in the bucket they call luxury living.

It is important to remember that the way you look and feel largely depends on your own views and ideas of what success and luxury looks like. For many men their wardrobe is the biggest factor and men’s neckwear is the most commonly used accessory to help create a look ad style that demands attention. This is what Necktie Emporium can do for you!

This is why it is important to keep an open mind as you work to become successful in your own life because you will likely end up working with a wide range of luxury-minded people, each one with their own likes, dislikes, wants, needs, desires, and demands. This can also impact how you see yourself and how successful or luxurious your own look and style seems in comparison. Do not ever assume that just because someone likes luxury in their life that they will the same as the last person you worked with.

It is also important to remember that your idea of luxury and high fashion can be distinct and different and wholly your own. Men’s neckwear can totally change the way you look and feel and best of all they are super affordable and come in many different styles so you can be sure to find ones that are just right for you!

When it comes to living a life of luxury and exuding the attitude and appearance of someone who is successful, a lot comes down to how you look and how you feel in the clothes you choose to wear. Check out our impressive selection of men’s neckwear at Necktie Emporium today!

How to Use a Zipper Tie

Monday, January 11th, 2016

Despite what the name may imply, a zipper tie does not feature visible zippers. The term “zipper” is used to describe the method5-2 that is used to put this type of tie on: It slips over the head and “zips” up to the neck. Zipper ties for men are already tied, which saves you time and saves you aggravation. Since they already perfectly knotted, you don’t have to worry about tying and retying that knot. You also don’t have to worry about making sure that it sits at the right length.

However, while zipper ties are definitely more convenient than traditional ties, if you have never worn one before, the name may scare you a bit. If you’re thinking that they are complicated to put on, think again. Here’s a brief tutorial (which is all you need) on how to use a zipper tie:

  • Place the tie around your shirt collar, just like you would with a standard necktie.
  • Pull the knot up to your neck, making sure that it sits securely against the top button of your collar.
  • Once in place, slide the zipper behind the tie up. This will adjust the tie, giving you a proper and comfortable fit. You may want to keep one hand on the knot while you are adjusting the zipper to make the process even easier and to make sure that the knot stays in the right place.
  • When you’re ready to remove the tie, simply pull down on the zipper. You can then loosen the tie and pull it up and over your head.

That’s it! That is all that is involved with using a zipper tie. It’s really a no-muss, no-fuss alternative to the standard necktie, yet it still offers you the same polished, put together look.

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.

Five More Great Reasons to Wear Clip-On and Zipper Ties

Sunday, March 1st, 2015

You don’t really need an excuse for buying clip-on or zipper ties. They’re stylish, convenient and versatile. However, if yourmen-s-woven-blue-paisley-necktie-3buddies give you a hard time, here are five perfectly valid excuses for taking a man’s best fashion shortcut.

1. Your Best Friend Is the Snooze Button

Sleeping in inevitably leads to being late for work. When every minute counts, taking time to tie a traditional tie could be the difference between keeping or losing your job.

2. Your Hands Hurt

No one should expect you to tie your own knots when you have arthritis, gout, trigger finger or other painful conditions. Unless someone else in the household can tie your tie for you every morning, choosing clip-on and zipper ties is a perfectly logical solution.

3. You Change Your Mind a Lot

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.

Brightening Up an Outfit with a Necktie

Friday, December 12th, 2014

businessman-481113_640When a man feels confident not only within his own personality, but with the outfit he’s wearing, he can feel unstoppable. There’s a reason why some of the most powerful leaders are always seen sporting a perfectly tied necktie. Simply put, a necktie demands attention and makes a man look handsome, strong, and well-dressed. Did you know that a necktie could actually transform an entire outfit into something more? Neckties have the power to brighten up a dull or average outfit, and at Necktie Emporium we make it easier and less expensive to do so.

If you’re a fan of wearing darker clothes, there’s really not too much happening with your outfit. Darker outfits are a safe bet at looking great, but if you want to stand out from the pack, a necktie can make that happen. Try wearing a patterned necktie in bright colors, or even a red clip-on to really make your outfit pop. If you’ve ever seen a man wearing a traditional black suit and colored necktie, you know exactly how great the combination can be. Neckties not only have the ability to brighten up an outfit, but many neckties even add texture to outfits, which can result in a completely different and extraordinarily stylish look.

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.

Types of Ties Every Man Needs In His Wardrobe

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

self-1348197-mEvery man probably owns a necktie, or at least should own a necktie. There are many different types and styles of neckties, but there are truly only a handful of ties that you should have in your wardrobe. These are 5 types of neckties that will fit into any man’s wardrobe for any situation:

  1. The navy tie- A navy tie is the perfect option for formal and informal events. Whether you wear a tie in the office with your fellow cubicle mates, or choose to wear a tie for a night out on the town, you cannot go wrong with a versatile and always stylish navy blue tie.
  2. The black tie- Perhaps more reserved for events that are a little more formal than not, a black tie is the most popular menswear accessory. Black ties look great with a variety of different outfits, and can be dressed up or down depending on the width of the tie. More fashion forward oriented men would be best off with a skinny black tie as opposed to a classic and full width tie.
  3. The patterned tie- patterned ties are a great way to break up the monotony of an ordinary or plain outfit. Patterns have a lot of personality and can look great in formal situations and also informal situations.
  4. The cotton/wool tie- Not necessarily a color, but cotton ties are the quintessential summer accessory. Cotton is lightweight and cool, and looks great with a pair of jeans or a suit. On the opposite side, a wool tie is the perfect quintessential tie for cooler months.
  5. The bowtie- Bowties are making a big come back in men’s style, and for good reason. The bowtie can help exude class and elegance, while also keeping you stylish and cool.
