Who are we? Who are
YOU is the better question!
If you’re not
familiar with us, we’re about to become your favorite place for neckwear and
other men’s accessories. Our ties and accessories have been featured
by major media outlets such as GQ Magazine, Esquire, Details, Maxim Magazine, Men’s Health, the Wall Street
Journal, the Chicago Tribune and numerous other national
periodicals, fashion/style magazines and wedding magazines.
Why? Because we
design our own colorful and stylish products, and then sell them at
unbelievable prices. Don't believe it? Read our Testimonials or browse the
Media Coverage we've received around the world.

The length of our regular ties is
about 58 inches. This is the standard necktie length available at most stores
and fits most people. The best way to tell is to measure a regular tie that
fits you now. If it is around 58 inches, then regular ties from The Tie
Bar will fit.
We offer our regular length neckties in four different widths, ranging from
traditional to skinny. Consult our size guide for more
information about our width options.
Remember guys, your necktie
should hit at the top of your belt, or no more than a half inch below the waist
line. Anything else, and your co-workers will talk about you behind your back
(Trust me, before our founding, we used to do it all the time...)
About 63 inches, which is pretty
standard for extra long ties. If you're 6'2" or taller, we recommend long
ties. If you have a big neck, regardless of your height, we recommend long
If you need longer ties, you can
also check out www.BigShotNeckwear.com, where they carry great silk ties that are 67 inches long.
Like our neckties, all of our regular-sized bow ties
are handmade of silk, linen, cotton or wool. Our regular-sized bow ties are
standard 2.5" tall and make a strong knot around your neck. Our slim bow
ties are just 1.5" tall. All bow ties have an adjustable
clasp that can be worn with neck sizes 13 3/4" to 18 1/2".
Depending on the tie, you have the
option of ordering pre-tied (to make life easier) or self-tie (for those gifted
people out there who actually know how to tie a bow tie – and if you don’t
know, we’ll teach you!) On the product page, simply choose which option you'd
like (where available).
If only one option is available, it
means the other option has sold out or that we only offer one type.
On the band of the bow tie, you will
see numbers (they correspond with your neck size). Next to each of those
numbers are eyelets (horizontal openings) that the metal, T-shaped piece will
slide into. It will lock into place once you have done so. This is how you
adjust the neck size. From there you take the strap of the pre-tied bow tie
around your neck, and the metal piece that slides freely on the strap will hook
into the hook on the front of the bow tie. Tadaaa!
Our ties are generally not thin. We
make all of our neckwear using a thicker interlining and a high
concentration of silk, so that the quality remains high. Thicker ties are
typically more resilient and last longer.
The silk ties are stain resistant. Cottons,
wools and other blends are not.
Often. We release a new collection
every month. Additionally, we constantly restock past designs that sell out
quickly after their original release. So we'll always have new ties (and
old favorites) for you to choose from!
We seem to be quite a
popular website for weddings, schools and organizations who are all looking to
buy a larger quantity of the same tie. Do we have enough of that design to fill
your order? Sometimes yes, sometimes no. To know for sure, we ask that you
email us first at email@example.com to find out. If we don't have enough ties in stock, there
are times where we'll be able to make a special order for you - just ask nicely
(we aim to please!).
Yes, sir (or ma'am). Our customers love
our ties, and they love to tell us about it. And once you receive your ties
(you're ordering, right?), you'll see what our prices can get you.
because the truth is, everyone's style is different. Originally, the tie bar
was clipped between the third and fourth button on your shirt (functional).
Nowadays however, we're seeing and advising that people wear it between the
second and third button from the top (just above the third button) - this is
where we find the sweet spot to be. And some people like tie bars to fit across
the entire length of the tie, while others prefer the tie bar to cover only
part of the tie – just as long as it’s never longer than the tie. Whatever your
preference, you can purchase our tie bars right here.
Slide clasps work far
differently than pinch clasps, and you need to understand the
difference before you wear one. Unlike pinch clasps, once a slide
clasp fits around the tie, it will keep its shape. So when wearing a slide
clasp for the first time, carefully open it up just wide enough to fit around
your tie. Then, once it is around the tie, you have to pinch it closed tightly.
The slide clasp will stay in place all day with no issues. When removing the
slide clasp at the end of the day, you must then pinch it tightly together
again as best you can. This is the best way a slide clasp will keep its
No. Never. Why?
Well, we've always
abhored retailers who mark something up, and then mark it down to a "sale
price". It's a bunch of bullsh*t.
So we don't do that.
No gimmicks. No sales. Our items are the same price all the time.
They’re already a
steal. Just read our testimonials if you don't believe us.
We do, however, run
special promotions each year, but they’re aimed at our existing customers. So
if you want to get in on it, buy a tie!
Yes, we have
children's ties - and here they are.
Don't worry. This is
your credit card company's bank that's holding your attempted order as
"pending". Some banks do this, others do not. You were not charged, but your order also won't go through our system until you enter the correct
Billing Address for your credit card. If you have any additional questions, you
will have to contact your credit card company - we cannot control how they
handle their billing functions. Sorry.
Because those websites are unreliable and unaffiliated with our company. You will not find a single valid coupon code for our website on sites like tjoos, retailmenot, ultimatecoupons, etc. So don't contact us asking why they don't work. Unhappy with that answer? Then contact them to complain about it - not us.
Very confidential and VERY secure.

and with The Tie Bar content we think you will like.

They sorta, kinda, in a way
already are gift wrapped.
All of our U.S. orders (not each
tie, but the orders) are shipped in an elegant, sturdy white box. Most of these
orders will arrive handsomely packaged with tissue paper and a sticker –
similar to how a department store packages clothing items. If you need extra
gift boxes for the ties you ordered, please contact us at 877-888-TIES, and we
will be happy to make a special arrangement with you. We also sell special
black gift boxes, now available here.
We can handwrite a personal
gift message to the recipient, so long as it isn’t too cheesy. (Note that there's no pricing information in a gift package, so your secret is safe with us.)
You will know that
your order went through because you will receive an Order Confirmation email
from us when the credit card transaction completes.
If you didn't receive
this email confirmation, check your spam folder. If it isn't there, then your
order didn't process. (Or you screwed up entering your email address.)
information will then be emailed to you upon shipment. Hang on to this email so
you can track your package!
Wow - really? We feel like we
answered everything! Ok - simply call us at 877-888-TIES or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. You’ll
get your answer, and you'll get it quickly. It's almost scary how quickly.
