Product Quality FAQ
All of our products are brand new and first quality. We stand behind the quality of our products, and we hear it over and over again from our customers that they can't believe the quality for the price paid. Our prices may be low, but quality is not. We are very efficient at what we do and sell a lot of ties. Our volume sold lets us price our ties for less.
We offer ties and scarves in both polyester and silk. Compared to polyester, our silk items feature a tighter fabric weave and are generally softer to the touch. Side by side, it is often difficult to tell the difference between silk and polyester. As such, most customers (especially those ordering for a large group or staff) choose polyester ties and scarves as a durable, cost-effective alternative to silk. We see the same quality polyester ties selling for $10 to $25 elsewhere. We don't reveal our customers, but you'd be surprised at where these ties are being worn. We have supplied ties to many Fortune 500 companies for their events as well as production studios for use in t.v. and movies.
Ties are packaged in poly sleeves with one or six of a color per sleeve, depending on the quantity ordered. If you need individual packaging, let us know in the comments section at checkout. Orders ship in bags or cardboard boxes.
Matching products and dye lots
We carry many matching items, including solid, striped and pattern ties, bow ties, scarves, boys' ties and more. We urge you to buy as many ties as you need at one time. Dye lots and texture may vary slightly from batch to batch and what we ship next week may not be an exact match to what we ship today. Additionally, because two items share the same color name, they may not be an exact color match due to different dye lots, manufacturers, etc. If you have questions regarding matching items and colors, call us at 866-865-8901.
Although it is recommended that our ties be dry cleaned, we have hand washed a white and hot pink tie from our signature line of solid ties that we ground dirt into and let set for 1 day. Using the instructions below, the ties came out looking almost as good as new. Please note that these ties are not meant to be washed repeatedly, and instructions are only for our solid, 100% polyester neckties. For all other items, please refer to the product tag for care.
Washing instructions for our signature solid color ties:
- Spray stains with a stain pre-treatment, if needed.
- Hand wash in cold water.
- Dry low heat, 30 minutes. Your results may vary based on the the stain and length of time the stain has set.
Ironing instructions: To iron polyester or polyester microfiber ties or scarves, use the synthetic or next highest setting. For heavy creases, move the iron on this setting slowly over the crease and it should come out shortly. Creases in silk ties or scarves often come out by simply hanging the item overnight. For a heavier crease, iron it using the silk setting.
Properly sized neckties should extend from the top of the shirt collar to about the belt area. See each age grouping below for specifics.
Men and teens: Most men and teens wear a standard 57- to 58-inch necktie and 20-inch clip-on or zipper tie. Our 61-inch and longer neckties and our 22-inch and longer clip-on or zipper ties are generally for men more than 6-feet tall or plus sized.
Women and pre-teens: Women or males in their early teens typically can wear a standard sized tie, though they may consider a narrower width (anything less than 3.5-inches). Look for clip-on or zipper ties less than 20-inches long, ideally 17- or 18-inches.
Children: We offer boys' ties in sizes starting at infant.
Clip-On Ties: We exchange more children's clip-on ties than any other age group as customers tend to order sizes too small. Use the size chart below as a guide. To ensure a proper fit, we highly recommend measuring the child from the top of the collar to the waist before purchasing.
