Find the perfect regimental ties at James Morton

Here at James Morton we are proud to have a long history supplying bespoke regimental ties, cummerbunds, cufflinks and other accessories to armed services across the world.

Regimental ties originated in Great Britain. British soldiers used their regiments’ colours on flags and pieces of silk to help identify themselves in battle, as well as to establish rank and classification within their regiment. When these soldiers were not in service they continued to wear their regimental colours on their neckties; wearing such ties brought men status and identity.

In recent times, regimental ties are best used for more formal occasions; we are especially proud on Armistice Day when each year we see so many of our military ties worn by proud servicemen and women. Similarly to regimental ties, cummerbunds are an item closely linked to the British military. These were adopted as an alternative to a waistcoat by British men stationed in India in the 1850s, when they saw them being worn by Indian men. In modern times, the cummerbund is used for traditional black-tie events.

Our regimental and military ties are available either for regular wear in woven polyester or for dress wear in woven silk. We also offer matching bow ties, cummerbunds and waistcoats, custom made to your specification.

Manufacturing regimental and military ties for over 80 years

We have been manufacturing military ties in the UK for over 80 years and our in-house team offer a free of charge, no obligation design service producing PDF artwork for your approval. We can advise you on your choice of tie fabric, as well as a wide variety of weaves and textures which meet with the traditions of your regiment. We also offer other finishing touches such as linings, personalised labels and presentation boxes.

Go green with recycled ties from James Morton

Do you like the sound of ties made from recycled plastic bottles?

Here at James Morton, we want to reduce our carbon footprint and produce sustainable products whilst making sure the quality and durability of our bespoke products is not compromised, that’s why we have recently developed recycled ties – Eco-friendly Ties.

Eco-friendly ties are made using waste plastic; although a product that is indispensable in many everyday uses plastic is a scourge on our environment. Plastic takes over 1,000 years to degrade – causing growing concerns regarding landfill and food chain pollution.

Did you know?

  • In the UK alone, approximately 450 plastic bottles are used each year per household and only 50% of those bottles used are ever recycled.
  • Approximately 13 billion plastic bottles are used in the UK each year, this consumes 912 million gallons of oil

By creating recycled ties we are putting waste plastic to good use, whilst reducing degrading plastics on our land and in our oceans. The plastic bottles used to create the ties are put through a recycling process. The bottles are ground down into flakes that are then spun into excellent quality, high performance recycled polyester yarn. Each tie saves 2 plastic bottles from landfill.

Many regular ties are third party manufactured overseas and shipped thousands of miles impacting the carbon footprint however our Eco-friendly Ties are manufactured right here in the UK!

The quality of our recycled ties is second to none; we use extra stitching for long durability and make our ties to fit different age ranges. Our design team are here to work with you, free of charge, in creating a new tie or replicating a current one in an environmentally friendly way. Alternatively, you can use our online design tool.

How to design your custom school tie from James Morton

Having a school tie as part of a school uniform can help to give students a sense of unity, whilst also helping them to develop the skill of tying a tie. Ties are also useful for schools that have different houses, or those who wish to be able to identify different year groups more easily.

James Morton offers a range of custom school ties with various design options available, allowing you to create a bespoke tie that fulfills the needs of your school.

Expertly crafted school ties from James Morton

When creating your custom school tie, preparation is key to ensuring you get a tie which both staff and pupils are happy with. We recommend creating some mock-up designs and going through them with focus groups throughout the school.

This will allow you to gain opinions from students, teachers, and other faculty members, and to create a tie that is a good match for the schools image but will also be worn by pupils.

When choosing the material and pattern of the tie, make sure you take in to account the fabrics and patterns you already use within other parts of the school uniform. You want a tie that brings the uniform together, rather than clashing with it or getting lost in it.

For example, if you wear woolen jumpers in the winter, it is unlikely that you would want a woolen tie to be worn under this. Also, if students wear blazers, you must consider the width and the aesthetics of the tie when worn with said blazer.

Colour is a good way of expressing the feelings of the school you are designing for, we recommend using it on your tie in a creative way. Offering different patterned ties to your students could also be a way to create more variety in their choice whilst keeping them uniform in their clothes.

Getting the design right can be challenging if you don’t have a fixed idea of what your ties should look like. If you are unsure on what material or pattern would be best, having a chat with our expert design team will guide you on the finer points of your school tie design.

Alternatively, if you have a design in mind, you can use our online design tool to get you started. After the creative process is complete, you will have a set of final designs that are ready to be turned into quality custom school ties by the experts at James Morton.

The types of traditional neckwear offered by James Morton

Whilst standard neckties are the most popular form of neckwear, there are a variety of traditional neckwear options that can be more suited to different occasions.

James Morton is proud to stock a comprehensive range of traditional neckwear options, made from quality materials and produced in an expert manner. Here are some of the traditional neckwear options offered by James Morton and when to wear them.

Custom neckties

As the premier supplier of custom ties in the UK, we can create neckties for a range of occasions from school uniform ties to promotional or club ties. Each tie can be designed with specific logos, designs and colours for a fully bespoke tie service.

We pride ourselves in being able to create high-quality, traditional neckties to suit both business needs and leisure needs alike.

Custom cravats

Cravats are a form of traditional neckwear that became a fashion craze around Europe after their invention in the 1660s. Cravats are characterised by their wider design due to their original use as bibs. The widespread popularity of this traditional neckwear is also thought to have served as a psychological benefit during battle!

Despite the traditional appearance, the tie has made a resurgence in recent years with many using it as a unique fashion item. Modern use of the cravat usually places the neckwear inside the shirt, which is kept fairly open. This is good if you are going for a casual look that still helps you stand out from the crowd.

Custom scarves

Scarves are another type of traditional neckwear that originated in ancient times. Whilst originally used as decorative items, scarves have been used as more functional pieces to help protect the wearer from the cold.

Scarves are a versatile piece of neckwear that work well in different situations. They can be incorporated into school uniforms and make good sports promotional items. Beyond this, scarves can add an interesting new dimension to an outfit.

Custom bow ties

Bow ties are seeing a resurgence in popularity, both as a fashion statement and as a symbol of class. Here at James Morton, we supply a range of bow ties both ready-tied or self-tied.

As well as supplying custom bow ties with both printed and woven designs, we are also suppliers of ladies bow ties and masonic bow ties. The bow ties can be custom made in any style, pattern or colour or you would like and also incorporating your club organisation’s motif. It’s as simple as sending us a design of your own, or we can work with you to come up with the right design.

Traditional neckwear from the UKs leading tie manufacturer

Neckties are not the only kind of neckwear available and James Morton stock some of the best traditional neckwear in the industry. We can produce scarves which are dye printed on both polyester and silk, offering you high levels of customization and helping you create the right custom scarf for your needs and budget.
