The Tie Bar’s neckwear is all 100% silk, handmade and stain resistant. They are of highest, designer quality and should remain in great condition, if treated well.
The best way to keep your ties in great condition is to have enough of them so you're not wearing them out too fast. This is also a less expensive way to give depth to your wardrobe. As a rule of thumb you should have three or four ties that go with each suit or sport outfit. Keep the ties hung with the suit they go with and rotate the ties through with each wearing of that outfit. Just drape them around the collar of the coat.
Each time you remove your tie, untie the knot by reversing the method used to tie the tie. Do not pull the small end of your tie through the knot. Do not leave the tie knotted, as it will permanently crease the fabric. After removing, hang the tie on a tie rack or drape them around the collar of the coat.
To remove wrinkles, usually it is enough to place the tie on its tie rack overnight. If that doesn’t work, rollup the tie, small end first and let it sit for a day. Finally, you may steam the tie (do not iron it).
All Tie Bar ties are stain-resistant. However, do your best to avoid stains! When eating out, tuck your napkin in your collar to save your tie from getting stained.
Ties by The Tie Bar are either made of silk, wool, cotton or linen. Removing stains on silk is tricky. First, always blot the stain, rather than rub. For water-soluble stains, use a clean cloth and dab with a small amount of seltzer water. For oil-based stains, talcum powder may pull it out. Serious stains can be removed with spot remover or other mild cleaning agents, but test first on the back of the tie to be sure that the remover won't damage the tie. Only as a last resort should you bring your tie to the dry cleaner.
To pack your ties, roll starting with small end first or carefully fold into 4 sections. Unpack upon arrival and hang your ties (and suit) in the bathroom while you shower. The steam will help remove slight wrinkles. Bring several ties – it is an easy way to look fresh when only carrying a few outfits.
