5 Tips To Own Your Style – 2017 Men’s Resolutions

5 Ways To Improve Your Style in 2017

We at Cheap-Neckties believe in the power of goals! We’re here to help guide you as you plan out your style for 2017. Here are 5 ways to help narrow down your fashion vision for the year while still taking steps forward. Cheers to what’s ahead!

 

1. Purge + Simplify

More than ever consumers are feeling the kickback of purchasing in excess. Closets are full but the desired style is still lacking. Take the time to go through your closet this January and throw out items you haven’t worn in months. Don’t hold onto basic items you wear once a year. Declutter your crowded closet (and mind) by minimizing your options. 

2. Invest

Having a tailor or investing in a tailored suit hasn’t been a priority for recent generations. Not until you have your first tailored suit will you appreciate the difference. Take the time this year to source out the best tailor in your area and pay the pretty penny for the best suit of your life. Follow this up by staying in shape to keep up your size – but that’s a different resolution.

3. Find Your Lane 

Part of growing your style is beginning to pinpoint your fashion strengths and weaknesses and what looks best on your body type. Identify the pieces you wear well and make you feel confident. Dive further into those specific areas so your personal style and brand becomes apparent to others. Avoid jumping from trend to trend.

4. Accessorize

We’re all for accessories. The trick is to know what, and how much. You never want to over accessorize but should feel free to include pieces that will individualize your style. Make sure to have the menswear basics – neckties and pocket squares. If this is already your norm, try adding a tie bar or lapel pin. These items can easily take a look to the next level without breaking the bank and doing a full 180 on a wardrobe.

5. Take Time For One New Trend

As the seasons change, new trends come and go. The classics in men’s fashion will always be in style, but this year take the time to try out one new trend instead of every shift that comes your way. Be grounded in your personal style but don’t be afraid to infuse other influences once in awhile.

Custom Ties for Jordan

Michael Jordan Neckties

A few weeks ago we were contacted to help produce some special neckties for a Michael Jordan foundation. The ties had to include the iconic Michael Jordan logo along with the roman numerals for 31. The client was looking for one uniform design in several color shades. The shades had to match a dozen different High Schools’ colors which were part of a special charitable event Jordan was creating. While we can’t tell you more about the cause at this point, below are the different colors we created using a woven fabric that has the logos and the XXXI embroidered as an all-over pattern.

Custom Embroidered Logo Tie

Oceanside Custom Logo Necktie

While printed fabrics will allow for more detail, the recent custom job we produced for the Oceanside High School soccer team is a perfect example of the detail that is possible using a woven fabric. Our customer wanted to produce a tie in school colors that also incorporate their intricate logo somewhere in the design. Below are initial 4 design suggestions our fabric designer created:

custom embroidered logo mens ties

The designs above served as a starting point and using the customer’s feedback, we refined the design further. The customer liked design #1 but wasn’t happy with so much gray in the design. We tweaked the colors and finalized the digital mock up as follows:

Once the digital design above was approved, we went into production. Just 8 days later we were able to shade photos of the actual ties with our client before moving ahead with the final production run. All ties were in our customer’s hand within 30 days of the order date. Below are two more photos of the tie showing the detail of the weave.

Winter Professional Wear Pyramid

Winter Professional Pyramid for Men

 

Earlier this year we created a Summer Prep Pyramid Capsule for Men. Based on that same idea, we’ve created a second pyramid focused on Winter Professional Attire. If this is your first intro into the world of capsule wardrobes, here’s the basic need-to-knows:

In a minimalistic world, this new trend agrees with the theme that less is more. Central to the capsule being a success is a rearrangement of your closet to contain only essential, versatile items and building your style from there. Rather than exhausting yourself to have fragments of every trend and genre of fashion, this initiative gives attention to your wardrobe staples which lets the trendier, eye-candy pieces, stand out more. Start by finding what you love to wear, your go-tos, and what is easily paired with almost anything. Then, invest your clothing budget into buying quality pieces that will remain a faithful companion in your closet. 

1 Coat

For fall and winter, an overcoat is an everyday necessity for the commuting man. A peacoat in navy is a stylish way to keep yourself from the blistering outdoors.

2 Shoes

Keep the shoes simple for your winter wear. A quality pair of brogue boots in brown and black oxfords will give you the best of both worlds.

3 Blazers

Fall and winter offer a reason to layer up! Keep it toasty with your style on point with a navy blazer, tweed jacket, and shawl neck sweater.

4 Pairs of Pants

Curate four pairs of quality pants in navy, gray wool, carmel wool, and black dress pants.

5 Shirts

Choose five styles of shirts in varying colors and patterns.

6 Neckties

For your winter neckwear accessories, choose the best colors of the season. Navy, maroon, and dark greens with varying patterns and solids.

Dark Orange Tie With Silver Diamonds

Custom Logo Ties for Catering Company

custom tie for catering company

When New England based catering company La Bonne Maison contacted us to have some custom neckties made for their wait staff, we were excited about the opportunity to create a truly unique and fun design. The client wanted a modern looking tie that could be worn for male and female wait staff that also incorporated their logo towards the bottom of the tie. Our design team suggested a slightly slimmer tie of 2.75 inches in width witch would not only be more contemporary, but would also be a better width for the female wait staff. Based on this information our designers made the first set of designs:

The customer liked design #2 and no further edits were needed. We went into production the same day, and just 27 days after the order was placed, the ties arrived at the customer. Below is another image of the final tie:

Enough Ties Sold to Reach 16x Around the Globe

record necktie sales

While Black Friday and Cyber Monday have passed, everyone here at Cheap-Neckties.com still feels the effect from the huge sales surge following the announcement of our biggest discounts ever. Within minutes of pressing send on our sales announcement e-mail, we knew that an “all hands on deck” approach would be required for the days following the sale to fulfill the thousands of orders. Even our company CEO helped pick and pack. Now that we are caught up with order fulfillment, we decided to take another look at the sales stats. Astonished by the record number of ties sold, we decided to highlight some of fun facts via an infographic.

Enough Silk Yarn to Wrap 16x Around the World
While the total number of ties (8,710 pieces) sold over Black Friday and Cyber Monday might surprise some, one truly astounding fact that should surprise anyone, is the fact that these 8,710 ties are made up of 418,319 miles (yes that is indeed a comma!) of fine silk thread – this is long enough to wrap the world 16x along the equator.

Really??? 16x around the World, Where is the Proof?
Yes, you read right! Thanks to all of your business, we sold enough ties over Black Friday and Cyber Monday whose total length of silk thread is long enough to wrap the globe sixteen times. Don’t believe it? Here is the math: Silk comes from the cocoon of a silk worm. Each silk worm wraps itself in super fine silk thread to form a cocoon. When this thread is un-spun it typically measures 1,500 – 2,500 feet in length. Now it takes about 120-150 silk worm cocoons to create enough silk yarn to weave a regular sized silk necktie. So, to make a tie about 250,000 feet (or about 47 miles) of silk thread is needed. This silk thread is spun to form a thicker silk yarn, which is then woven into fabric. The fabric is then cut and sown into a tie. Since we sold 8,710 ties, 418,319 miles of silk thread is needed to make these. This is long enough to wrap the world 16x. Still don’t believe it? Well, it is true. Just take our word for it!

Thank you everyone for making our Black Friday and Cyber Monday such a tremendous success. Your business and loyalty is truly appreciated!
