When a company like Ties.com contacts you and wants to send you some products to try out, it's impossible to say no. I had not heard of Ties.com which is hard to believe as it seems like common sense that it would exist but I would have imagined it to be full of low quality products, cheaply made, and poorly designed. I would have been horribly wrong, they actually have "thousands of incredible products in stock - neckties, bow ties, tie bars, tie racks and cufflinks to name just a few." Ties.com sent over quite the box of goodies and I do mean goodies! The selection is not only incredible but I guarantee you'll find some items you have been lusting over for years; I even found a few pieces I had bookmarked on tumblr YEARS AGO.
Before I even set eyes on their products, I respected the company. Each item was individual packaged, a nice branded tin box for the bow ties, small high-quality padded boxes for the tie clips, and the sweetest little tissue paper filled boxes for each neck tie, making it feel far more like christmas than I had expected. The devil is in the details.
The quality of the packaging is impressive but what about the product? Fantastic. The ties are solid, silky, and are actually quite long to suit longer torsos. This shark tie, while being a skinny tie, is actually decently thick and therefore sits rather well. I didn't have to worry about my tie tangling up or my stellar american flag socks falling down during my meeting with the one and only Laverne Cox.
If that doesn't rock your socks, their bow ties will. Ties.com offers a range of self-tie & pre-tied bow ties that speak for themselves. I imagine you'll be seeing this floral bow tie quite a bit as it has easily become one of my favorites. Diamond tip, batwing, and butterfly, clovers and blue moons, pots of golden rainbows and I'm just making this up but they have some fantastic prints!
Neck ties, bow ties, socks... what else could they possibly offer? Accessories galore! Lord knows I love a good accessory and their tie clips and sunglasses couldn't make me happier...just kidding they are extremely affordable as well. Great things, small price tags...heaven does exist... online.
**I knew it.**
Thanks Ties.com, I'm a believer.
