Find the perfect custom tie with James Morton

Having custom ties can give your team or business a unique touch whether that be for the purposes of uniformity or perhaps to promote your organisation. At James Morton, we can create custom ties for all uses and can design bespoke ties to your specifications.

We can create anything from custom promotional ties and business ties to masonic ties and have outlined some examples of what we offer below.

Custom Logo Ties

Logo ties are an ideal choice for promoting a brand or for creating a sense of identity within a team, with the logo often displayed at the base of the tie so that it is clearly visible.

At James Morton, rather than stitching your logo on top of stocked fabric we will either weave your logo in as part of the material or print it on to the tie if the design is more complex. Our method of producing these ties ensures your custom logo ties are of high quality and will last over time.

School Uniform Ties

A school uniform tie helps portray a school’s identity and is perfect for schools who want different year groups, or school houses, to be easily identifiable.

As with all school uniform pieces, the ties need to be durable so at James Morton we add extra stitching to hard-wearing fabrics to increase the life of our school ties. These ties can fit different age ranges and come with the addition of a label where pupils can add their names.

School uniform ties can be plain in colour or be customised to include school colours and a logo.

Corporate Ties

Corporate ties make an ideal addition to most businesses, and having custom made corporate ties will help your business to stand out from the competitors. We make all of our custom ties on a Jacquard Loom which ensures a quality product.

Many James Morton customers order custom ties for significant corporate events. This helps with brand awareness, brand identity, and can make your team look more professional.

Military Ties

James Morton have a long history supplying bespoke military ties and other accessories to armed services across the world.

We offer regimental and military ties in woven polyester for regular wear or in woven silk for dress wear. These ties and accessories help to highlight which regiment members of the armed forces are in, and also what rank they are.

How promotional ties could benefit your business

At James Morton, we are dedicated to offering bespoke ties for any occasion. Ties don’t just have to be for special occasions, so in this blog, we have highlighted some ways in which custom made ties can be used as a promotional tool to help elevate your brand.

If you can find the right strategy to get promotional ties in front of your customers, you will increase your brand awareness and create memorable customer experiences.

Create brand consistency with promotional ties

If your business frequently hosts or attends events which require a suit and tie then you could be missing out on showcasing your brand if you aren’t choosing to wear bespoke ties to these events.

Ties are a subtle way to show brand consistency. They are easily created to match your company colour scheme, with the bonus of being able to add logos, emblems or writing which matches anything you use on your website and other marketing channels.

Group networking events and career fairs are the ideal places for you and your team to wear branded ties, as it will immediately give you an identity and show people that you are from the same company, creating an impression from the start.

From an employer perspective, giving your employees a promotional tie when they join or for a team event will help to make them feel more included and part of the team. This is a small token, but it will immediately boost morale and will increase the overall productivity of your workforce.

Custom ties are also the perfect way to reinforce your brand image in the minds of any potential customers. If they recognise your brand from seeing it on your employees’ uniforms whilst they are outside of the office or workplace, then they are more likely to trust your business and want to be associated with you.

Discover the different types of tie

When choosing a tie there are a range of options available, and historically different ties were created for different uses, giving each tie its own bit of history and its own occasion to be worn.

At James Morton we have a whole range of custom made ties available and in this blog we take a look at some of the common types of tie from over the years.

1. Ascot Tie

The Ascot Tie dates to the 18th Century and is thought to have grown in popularity in the 19th Century. The term came about from the Royal Ascot Race, where gentlemen who attended wore a looser day tie as part of their morning attire. For this reason, the ascot is often known as a day cravat.

2. Bow Tie

Whilst bow ties date back to the 17th Century, the bow tie is still popular today, especially with formal-casual attire. That being said, bow ties are still commonly seen at formal events such as black tie and military events.

They now come in 3 distinct types: Self-tie, Pre-tied and Clip-on.

3. Bola/Bolo Tie

Most commonly referred to as the Bolo Tie and generally associated with Western areas of The United States. They are made from a piece of cord or leather and fixed together with an ornamental and decorative clasp/slide.

These ties are still worn today but aren’t so common as other ties such as the bow tie and the more traditional neck tie.

4. Cravat

Cravats appear to be coming back in to fashion again, forming popularity in regions of London.

The type of tie comes from the style worn by the 17th Century military unit – the Croats. They are different to the neck tie in that they are larger and more prominent.

5. Kipper Tie

Kipper ties are like your regular neck tie, except they have some attributes that make them their own.

Kipper ties are extremely wide, often up to 5 inches and show off bright and showy designs.

They were fashionable in the 1940’s and could have got their name from the extreme width of them which make them not dissimilar to a kipper fish.

6. Neck Tie

This was previously referred to as a four-in-hand tie due to the knot used, but as more knots were invented and used more frequently this tie became the neck tie and is now the most common tie.

Neck ties can vary in width and length. They can be as wide as 5 inches, but they usually sit around the 3-inch mark. It is advised that you choose a wider tie if you have broader shoulders and a skinny tie for slimmer builds. This way the width of the tie compliments the wearer.

The length of a neck tie can be anywhere between 52 and 58 inches. The end of the tie should rest at the top of your trousers, meaning men with larger torsos should opt for a longer tie.

7. Sailors Neckerchief

The sailors tie is reported to have made its first appearance in the 16th Century. It was originally used to protect sailors’ necks from their stiff collared shirts. The ties are tied with a square not, which was introduced in 1817 so that all sailors in the Navy would tie their ties the same way.

The Sailors Neckerchiefs are also worn as part of Japanese School Uniforms and are worn for fashion in other areas of the world.

8. Scarves

Scarves are light pieces of fabric, often silk, that are tied around the neck. Scarves are available for both men and women and can be worn both formally and casually.

They are commonly seen on air hostesses but are used for other job roles too.
