The story of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson is a timeless tale of a quirky detective and his down-to-earth, reluctant sidekick. BBC’s Sherlock features loveable and eccentric characters adventuring and cracking the strangest mysteries in England. Celebrate Halloween this year by making your mark on the crime world and becoming Sherlock or Watson with this costume guide! Inspired from the spooky, Victorian Christmas series, many of the costume items can often be found tucked away in a closet or borrowed from a father, grandfather, or friend. Don’t forget the most brilliant English accent and sass for the costume to be complete.

When it comes to fabrics, gold is a tricky color. It often comes out too yellow or too brown and has little resemblance with the gold typical metallic sheen. Recently we were contacted by a Limousine services company on Long Island, NY to get custom logo ties made for all their drivers. They wanted a slightly slimmer black tie with metallic initials embroidered at the tip of the tie. Below are a couple design suggestions making use of different scales:
The customer choose the larger scale of design #4 that shows the logo in size 1.5″ x 0.5″. The customer also opted for the metallic yarn that gives the logo a gold-like sparkle. Below is the final tie that arrived at the customer within 30 days of placing the order.

Planning a wedding for Fall? Not only do we think the natural beauty of Fall makes this season one of the best, the vibrant colors do most of the work! Don’t be afraid to use the outdoors to your advantage and fuse them into your color scheme. Combinations of berry and navy, burnt orange and grey, or forest green and taupe are iconic to this wonderful time of year. The cooler weather also allows for more creativity with fabrics and accessories. Choosing a wool suit or tweed jacket for the groom and a bridal gown with sleeves will add some individualistic style to your wedding. We’ve created a Pinterest Board dedicated to Autumn Weddings to help spark inspiration and showcase some of our favorite looks and products.

We regularly produce custom ties for school’s sports teams, and here is a perfect example of a recent job we did for a High School soccer team in Kansas City. The customer wanted a simple striped tie in bright red and white. At the bottom portion of the tie, the school’s coach wanted the embroidered writing “Trojan Soccer” as well as a soccer ball that appears to be in motion. After our designer created a handful of design suggestions, and after a round of edits, the design was finalized which is shown below:
Once design was approved, we went into production. 12 days later the fabrics were completed (image below left), which we shared with our client for feedback. Since no further edits were needed, we went into bulk production. All 85 ties were delivered to our customer 33 days after the order was submitted. The image on the right below shows the final tie.

Over the years we at Cheap-Neckties have done thousands of different custom logo tie designs for clients in any industry all over the world. While most customers want their logo either embroidered at the bottom of the tie or imprinted as part of an all-over pattern, we occasionally get requests to create a tie that shows the logo a few inches below the knot when the tie is tied. The benefit: the logo is always visible, even when the jacket is closed or the tie is worn below a vest. One of such recent custom jobs was created for a club in Columbus, OH. The first image below shows our final design suggestion that was created to our clients specifications. The image after that shows the final tie that was delivered to the customer 36 days after the order was placed.
