Are your products in stock?
If a product is unavailable, it will display “sold out” and you will not be able to add it to your cart. All other products on our website are in stock in our Midwest location in Mundelein, Illinois (and usually in large quantities). We do not make products available for purchase until shipments arrive, so you don’t need to worry about ordering a product that we do not yet have/is not available to ship. (Very, very rarely our inventory is inaccurate. If for any reason you order a product that is actually out of stock, we would contact you immediately. Again, this is rare.)
When will my order ship?
We process and ship orders quickly from our Midwest location in Mundelein, Illinois. Orders placed on our website before 12 pm central time, Monday through Friday, will ship the same day. Orders placed after 12 pm or on weekends and holidays ship the next business day. Please note that once your order leaves our warehouse, it goes to the shipping carrier who then delivers it to you. For delivery by Christmas, see our "Holiday Shipping Schedule" above.
How long will shipping take?
For delivery by Christmas, see our "Holiday Shipping Schedule" above. By now, you’ve probably heard about expected shipping delays this holiday season. Due to unprecedented demand, workforce shortages and COVID-19 precautions among shipping carriers (basically a perfect storm), packages are going to take longer to arrive, especially as we get closer to Christmas. Our advice is to upgrade to faster shipping options as needed and be very patient. Last year, tracking numbers were slow to update and took much longer to arrive than “normal” and we expect much of the same this year.
Do you offer gift wrapping?
We do not offer gift wrapping at this time. However, necktie gift boxes are available for purchase individually. These boxes are made from heavyweight chipboard, so they are elegant to present without wrapping. Simply secure with a ribbon bow (not included). Each box fits 1-2 ties, self-tie bow ties or socks.
What products do you recommend for gifts?
Great question! Our favorite ties to gift are our exclusive line of Regent Morris Neckwear. These are higher-end silk-blend ties and compare to what you’d find in a department store. The patterns are typically conservative so they are great for the guy who wears a tie to work everyday. For a more budget-friend option, you have to take a look at our special purchase ties. These ties are not only affordable, but there are 500+ patterns available so there is something for everyone. Because of the low price, you can purchase a few or simply gift one. No one will guess you paid such a cheap price! Of course, if you need a great stocking stuffer you can never go wrong with a new pair of socks or two. Our bestselling socks are comfortable and come in stripes, argyle, solids and tons of fun novelty patterns.
Can I create a tie?
Yes! Our custom photo ties are really popular for gifts. Send us a photo (child, pet, selfie, wedding pics, artwork, etc.) and we can print it on a necktie at our Illinois location. (You don’t necessarily need a fancy photographer photo to create a custom tie. Most of our photo ties are created from pictures our customers snapped on their phones.) We send you a proof to approve before any payment is due. The process is quick and we can typically create, print and ship a custom tie within a few days to a week. However, with the expected shipping carrier delays this season we highly recommend getting started ASAP on your custom ties.
What should I wear for Christmas?
There are so many ways to look festive this holiday season. A Christmas-themed novelty tie is always a great option, and we have plenty of fun ties with Santas and snowmen available. For something with a few less reindeer, try a striped tie in Christmas colors. Look for pattern ties in red if you prefer a tie you can wear after the holidays. For a dressier holiday outfit we highly recommend our velvet ties. These neckties and bow ties will look so rich and elegant at your office party or Christmas Eve dinner. You don’t have to stick to traditional holiday colors with velvet either. Navy blue velvet is just as festive as red velvet around the holidays.
What should my group wear for Christmas?
Red staff ties and red band collar bow ties are our most popular ties for group holiday wear. Both of these options are available in bulk quantities with special discount pricing available. We recented added matte-finish red and green plaid ties that are perfect for group holiday wear. They come in a number of styles for men and women. Our customers also upgrade to striped ties in Christmas colors, like our candy cane red and white striped ties or traditional red and green stripes. Novelty ties are a great choice for Christmas uniforms, too. Our Christmas necktie is sure to get your staff into the holiday spirit.
