Tip of the Week - How to Choose the Best Tie

  • silk should feel smooth
  • high-quality ties, constructed from three pieces of fabric, should lie perfectly flat, without bumps or ripples.
  • make sure the bar tack is securely attached and on straight - detail, details!
  • pull on the back slip stitch - one that has been sewn on correctly helps maintain the shape of the tie and gathers together when pulled
  • hold the tie over your hand and let it fall. The narrow end should fall directly in the middle of the wide end
