The Basics

Tie Bar's ties are handmade, stain resistant and premium quality. Help yourself with these tips on how to keep them looking, well, as awesome as you do.

Keep a Rotation
1. Don't wear them out

Every guy's got their favorites—but the best way to keep your ties in great condition? Stock up and start a rotation.

2. Multiple ties for each outfit

A good rule of thumb? Invest in three or four ties that go with each suit or sport coat.

Hang 'em (or roll 'em)
3. Hang it with the suit

Give yourself easy access by keeping the ties hung on the suit they go with, draping them around the collar of the coat.

4. Invest in a tie rack or organizer

Organize all of your ties in one place using a tie rack or organizer. This way, you can easily see your options (and what additions or subtractions to make to your collection).


Everyday Care

Always

When removing your tie, untie the knot by reversing the method used to tie it (don't put the small end of your tie through the knot). After removing, hang the tie on a tie rack or coat collar, or roll it up in a tie organizer.

Never

Don't leave the tie knotted (it'll permanently crease the fabric).


Removing Wrinkles

Slight wrinkle

Place the tie on its tie rack overnight.

A bit stubborn

If that doesn't work, roll up the tie, small end first and let it sit for a day.

Deep wrinkle

We give you permission to steam the tie—but resist the urge to iron it (you'll risk ruining it).


Removing stains

Ties by Tie Bar are made of silk, wool, cotton, or linen. We'll go ahead and warn you—removing stains on silk is tricky. A good rule of thumb? Always blot the stain (don't rub).

Serious stains

Serious stains can be removed with spot remover or other mild cleaning agents. Test first on the back of the tie to be sure the remover won't damage it.

Last resort

Go ahead and take it to a dry cleaner you trust.


Travel Tips

Going somewhere? To pack your ties, roll them (starting with the small end first) or fold them into four sections.

Look Your Best

Lucky for you our ties come standard with a low price point, so you won't break your budget replacing your favorite tie after that little mishap at your favorite Italian restaurant on your last date night. However, there's hope! Not every spill signals it's time to replace. What's more, you can extend the life of your quality Tie Bar ties by following a few simple steps everyday. Follow our detailed guide or connect with a tie expert for the best advice.


Your Tie, Untied

After your long day at the office, your Tie Bar tie may be the first to go. The best way to remove your tie is to follow your knot tying steps in reverse. When you quickly slip the tail out through the knot, you run the risk of your tie losing its shape. Never, ever store your ties tied! Doing so causes permanent damage to Tie Bar's natural fabrics.
