Custom Neckties with Large Embroidered Logo

While we love to help customers come up with interesting designs for their custom tie, it is also always appreciated when a customer already has a clear vision of what they want. This was the case for Notre Dame Seminary. The client liked our in-stock matte navy blue tie CS0704 but wanted their logo to be added at the bottom center of the tie in silver. Of course, this was not a problem for us. Before we started the production, we created the following design mock up:

Just 32 days after we submitted for production, the ties arrived at the customer. Below is another detailed photo of the actual tie showing the matte woven texture and embroidered logo.

Halloween Costume Guide for The Office Characters

Halloween Costume Idea for The Office

The NBC television show, The Office gave audiences a new wave of iconic characters that has helped shape the last decade of American comedy. Viewers grew to love the awkward, unique, and often maddening characters which if we’re honest with ourselves, we all relate to in some way.

In light of Halloween 2017 coming up, we found costume ideas for three of our favorite Office characters: Michael Scott, Jim Halpert, and Dwight Schrute. Similar to a typical office setting, each character regularly wore a suit and tie through the duration of the show. To pull off each of these characters, the standout qualities will be found in the details and personalities. Check out our costume ideas for these popular comedy characters!

Michael Scott

Michael Scott Women's Suit Halloween Costume Idea

Michael Scott can be characterized as both the best and worst boss in one. His kindness, generosity, and love for birthday celebrations make him a unique find. While his unquenchable desire for best friendship, inappropriate manners, and lack of secret-keeping skills make his a terrible boss. A true Office show lover will remember the episode where Michael has to negotiate an employee, Darryl’s contract. Michael has been avoiding these conversations for some time and was practicing negotiation tactics in order to be prepared to say, no. During these conversations, Darryl exposes that Michael was wearing a “ladies’ suit”. Unknowingly, Michael had picked a women’s suit from the bargain bin, probably from Burlington Coat Factory. This look includes a women’s suit, necktie, and Michael’s iconic “World’s Best Boss” mug.

Jim Halpert
Jim Halpert Name Tag Halloween Costume Idea

Jim Halpert is the office prankster who has the hots for the receptionist, Pam Beasley. His laid-back demeanor but witty and sarcastic tone makes him a fan favorite. Through the seasons, Jim’s style moves from a sloppy combination of baggy shirt and trousers to a modern fitting professional attire. His go-to look was a light blue dress shirt, charcoal trousers, and solid dark necktie. In honor of Halloween, we chose one of Jim’s Halloween costumes within the show. In this episode, Jim simply dresses up as “Dave” by using a name tag. In order to make this impression a success, don’t forget a Jim smirk!

Dwight K. Schrute

Dwight Schrute Halloween Costume

The Assistant to the Regional Manager, Dwight Schrute is a volunteer fire deputy, beet farmer, Battlestar Galactica buff and overall quirky guy. Motivated by getting Jim Halpert fired and becoming the next Regional Manager, Dwight is always looking for ways to get ahead. His everyday attire wasn’t difficult to construct. By staying within the olive green, khaki, brown, and mustard yellow color schemes, anyone can pull off Dwight Schrute look. We found an khaki green suit, mustard dress shirt, and copper and brown necktie. The details will bring this outfit to life. Make sure to include a pair of eyeglasses, belt phone case, nunchucks (just in case), and parted hair down the middle.

Custom Striped Logo Ties

A few weeks ago we were contacted by the CUTCO, the well known cutlery brand, to create some custom logo ties for their sales staff to wear to an upcoming trade show. The customer gave us quite a bit of freedom on design. To make sure our design suggestions compliment CUTCO’s brand image, we oriented ourselves on CUTCO’s website to create these initial design ideas:

The customer liked the blue color palette on design #4 but wanted the logo to be placed higher so it is visible while wearing a jacket. The final design mock up is shown below:

The ties arrived at our customer in time for the trade show, just 24 days after submitting the production run. Below is another detailed photo of the woven fabric of this unique striped logo tie.

Cheap-Neckties Menswear Color Of The Month: Tawny Port

Each month we will be featuring a Color of the Month! We are often inspired by trending colors and want to share our love for the complexity within each hue. We hope that by submerging into the the color wheel, our customers’ knowledge will expand as we feature distinct, noteworthy items. Let us know your color requests in the comments below!

Tawny Port, burgundy, marsala, and wine. Dark red hues have taken fashion by storm. In men’s and women’s fashion, weddings and decor, the wine colored tones keep popping up season after season. As we head into the latter part of the year often filled with the darker side of the color wheel, we at Cheap-Neckties deemed Tawny Port worthy of the title, “October Menswear Color of the Month”. The distinctive color is so versatile it can be worn with a wide variety of suits and patterns. Popular fall and winter fabrics include tweed and wool often seen in brown, charcoal, and navy blue. For the fashionable groom, we recommend a three piece wool suit in midnight blue and a necktie or bow tie in Tawny Port. Check out some of our most popular and affordable neckties and bow ties in Tawny Port below.

Custom Black Ties with Single Embroidered Logo

Bistro and Wine Bar The Funky Door contacted us to create some fun custom bow ties using their wine glass logo. After browsing the client’s website and after getting some design direction on preferred colors and look, our designers created these initial mock-ups:

The customer chose the simple solid black with single logo placement shown in design #1, and instead of only ordering bow ties, they also placed an order for some complimenting neckties. Of course, the logo on the necktie was increased in size to be proportionate to the necktie’s wider width. Just 35 days after submitting the production run, did the ties arrive at our customer in Texas. Below is another photo of the custom necktie and bow tie set:

Custom Logo Golf Club Ties

Logo Embroidered Striped Club Tie
While most of our custom tie designs are the creation by our own in-house design team, occasionally we are contacted by a customer to re-make an existing tie. This was the case when the Southern CA based Golf College contacted us to recreate their existing club striped necktie. To ensure that colors and design details match exactly, we asked out customer to send us one of their existing ties.

Our fabric designers took apart this tie, matched all the yarns to our yarn books, and then recreated this custom woven necktie to be an exact match. Once production started, the ties were finished and sent to our customer in just 29 days. Below is another photo of the tie as well as the custom tag that the client wanted on the backside of the tie showing their website and phone number:

custom striped tie in burgundy and gold

The fabric was woven using a modern Jacquard loom and features a club-tiue typical repp texture. Below is another detailed photo of the woven fabric and the embroidered logo:

Our customer wanted their website as well as phone number displayed on the backside of the tie. We therefore created a custom tag (aka tie keeper) that secures the narrow end in place behind the wide end of the tie:
