Halloween is a mere week away, and here at Cheap-Neckties we’ve got our ties picked out and our costumes ready! If you’re a little late on the holiday train, not to worry. We’ve put together a list of five stellar Halloween costumes for men at a reasonable price – all of them tie-centric and sure to garner you plenty of the big-sized candy bars. With 3-5 business day shipping within the United States, you’ve got just enough time to order your necktie or bow tie for the 31st!
The Doctor has re-popularized the bow tie in recent years. A Rich Wine Red Bow Tie in the self-tie style for $14.95 is the perfect neck piece for pairing with a tweed coat from your favorite local thrift store. Do that flippy side bang thing with your hair, then jump in the TARDIS to your next Halloween soiree!
A News Caster
Take a note from Will Ferrell’s character Ron Burgundy in the movie Anchorman and dress up as a cheesy newscaster. Pair a Striped Blue and Espresso tie with a burgundy thrift store blazer, and a pair of slacks. Go the full mile with a stick-on ‘stache and a ’70s hair-do.
Bill Nye the Science Guy
BILL! BILL! BILL! Dress up as your favorite Science Guy this Halloween and spend your evening chanting the ’90s theme song at the top of your lungs. Create the look with our Self Tie Cotton Bow Tie in a Scottish tartan plaid pattern for $19.90 and this soft blue lab coat we found on Amazon for $11.90. Carry a plastic beaker or a miniature globe for the finishing touch! Do it for SCIENCE!
The Blues Brothers
Grab a friend and suit up in black for a Blues Brothers costume that’s easy to build and always a crowd pleaser. Pull out that old suit you own or find one for cheap at a thrift store, and dress it up with our Modern Ultra Slim Tie in Black. Top it off with a black fedora and a pair of casually cool dark sun glasses.
The Son of Man
Showcase your artsy side by dressing up as a painting by the surrealist Belgium painter, Magritte. Wear a used three-button coat with a white dress shirt and a $5 Solid Colored Bright Red Necktie, and don’t forget the green apple! A little tip – shove a stick in the back of the apple to hold it with your mouth for photos.
