Benefits of custom cufflinks and tie bars

When buying wholesale ties for your club, school or business you will have fully thought through the design, colours and style. When your team are looking absolutely incredible in their matching custom ties, it would be wrong to throw in some basic cuff links or tie bars. What you really need is some custom tie clips and cufflinks to finish off the look. Here are some ways this could help benefit you and your team.

 

Represents you as a team

Custom cuff links and tie clips that fit in with the design and style of your custom ties help you stand out as committed and proud of the brand that you are representing. This shows people that you are a strong team and one that cares about the way they are perceived.

 

Plenty of styles to choose from

We have a wide range of cufflinks that you can customise and tailor to your needs. Here are the styles of cufflinks we have available:

  • Antique Nickel Cufflinks
  • British Craft Cufflinks
  • Enamel Cufflinks
  • Equine Cufflinks
  • Gold Enamel Cufflinks
  • Gold Plated Cross
  • Gold Plated Cufflinks
  • Jewelled Cufflinks
  • Novelty Cufflinks
  • Silver Cufflinks

They’re stylish

A smart outfit is never complete until you accessorize. Tie clips and cufflinks are an absolute must in men’s fashion and should not be left out if you want a team that is on trend.

You can choose to have your personal logo on the cuff link or just choose something that represents what you do and who you are as a team.

Tips for buying a high quality tie

When buying a tie for a specific occasion, it can be a rather daunting task. There are so many different ties to choose from and each one of them will accentuate your outfit in a different way. Choosing the right tie will really make the difference between a stylish look and one that just doesn’t look quite right. So what are the things you can do to ensure you get it right first time?

 

The Fabric

When you are looking for a quality tie, it’s important to consider the fabric of the tie. High quality manufacturers will use fabric that gives you a better knot, shape and overall look.

The best material you can have for a tie is silk. Simply because it is a high quality material and it generally looks much more stylish than any other material of tie.

Printed or Woven?

It is much easier to achieve a high quality pattern by printing on to the tie fabric, but  it is also possible to achieve patterns within woven ties too. Technology is much more sophisticated than it used to be and machines can now weave different colours of fabric to create high quality patterns. Due to this, it is possible to get high quality patterns within both printed and woven ties.

Embroidered?

Embroidered ties are largely popular at the moment, but we would recommend choosing high quality woven or printed ties instead as they will last much longer.

Embroidered stitching can get damaged and fray after a while, which ruins the whole tie.

Tie Bar Tack (Stitch)

Turn over your tie and look for a little stitch on the back of the tie. This stitch isw for resting your tie bar upon so that it doesn’t slip out of place. If the tie has one of these, it means it was made by a proper tie manufacturer.

 

So know you know how to purchase a high-quality tie. We sell a wide range of quality ties for a range of different purposes. You can also order custom ties with our company or club logo on, meaning you can make your team stand out from the crowd.

Top tips for matching shirts and ties

Trying to match your shirts and ties can be a struggle and sometimes a little boring. Whether you wear a shirt daily for work or only get one out for special occasions, we’ve got some top tips to help you match your shirts and ties with ease.

Try out a new base colour

It’s often instinct to reach for a crisp white shirt to set off a bold coloured tie, but a pale grey shirt is another option that will go with almost any tie. Grey can come across as a bit more sophisticated and is a bit more interesting than a standard white shirt!

Look for complimentary colours

Floral ties are great for brightening up your outfit for an occasion or even in a meeting. When choosing the right shirt to go with your floral tie, try to avoid coordinating with the main shade of your tie. Instead, choose a shirt that matches one of the less frequent shades, or the accent colour. This will allow the main colour of the tie to stand out, whilst ensuring the two items match.

Don’t be afraid to play with pattern

If you want to opt for a bold look and mix and match patterns, then you need to aim for patterns that have complementary shades and styles. If patterns are too similar the whole look will merge into one, too different and it looks a bit messy. As a general rule, always try and make sure your tie is darker than your shirt and have the pattern a little smaller too.

If in doubt keep it simple

Sometimes, for a formal event, you’ll probably be best sticking to a double cuff white shirt and keeping it simple. In this case, to add a bit of colour, you can add a tie that has a delicate pattern and some cufflinks that have a punch of colour. Classic combinations such as blue and white or red and white are a good go-to option.

To find the right tie for any occasion take a look at our huge range of custom ties, alternatively get in contact with a member of our team to discuss your needs.

How Your Business Could Benefit From Our Custom Ties

If you work for a business that requires formal wear on a day to day basis, you could benefit from custom ties from James Morton Ties.

Our custom ties allow you to print your own logo upon a tie designed by you and you can order as many as you need.

 

Portrays Professionalism

This may seem self-explanatory but having a coherent uniform, even if it’s just a tie, can make your business seem much more professional than a business where everyone has different ties.

Having your logo on your tie and using your businesses colour also shows you are serious about your business and are proud to wear the branding.

 

Business Promotion

When you are not in work, say on your way there or on your way back and in public, people may see your tie and mentally log it.

This works as a self-promotion method and can increase brand awareness for your business.

 

Sense of Unity

Uniforms are a great way to bring staff together. As you are ruling out competitive tie wearing and leveling everyone to the same standard you may see reduced tension in the office.

This method is used in school but is also shown to have benefits when used in a more formal and adult scenario.

James Morton Ties – How to Wear A Tie

 

There is a set of unspoken rules about wearing a tie, and a lot of us don’t know them. By learning these important rules, you can set yourself apart and become a much more professional and stylish individual.

These are the 3 elements of tie wearing and buying that can help you become more fashion conscious.

 

Length

Donald Trump Tie

We are all talking about Donald Trump’s terrible ties and the main problem is that they’re just too long!

It is recommended that your tie ends just above your belt buckle, with the tip of your tie hanging over slightly.

The problem with ties that are too long is that they look sloppy. Also, tying your tie too short risks you looking like a clown.

To get your tie at the right length, tie it when standing in your natural posture as slouching or standing up too tall can negatively affect the accuracy of your tie length.

Another element to consider is the height of your trousers. If your trousers fit higher on the waist you do not want to significantly reduce the length of you tie with that, as it may make you look out of proportion.

Aim for your tie to fall relative to your waistband

 

  1. Width

The width of your tie should be picked depending on your body shape. If you have very broad shoulders, opt for a slightly wider than average tie width as it will accentuate your body shape and emphasise your figure.

If you do not have very broad shoulders it is not advised to wear a wide tie as it emphasises that you do not have broad shoulders.

Those with a slim build should opt for a skinnier tie as it compliments your figure more effectively.

 

  1. Knot

Getting the knot right is another extremely important element of tie wearing. A knot that is too big will like silly, but so will a knot that is too tiny.

The 3 knots you should know and use are:

  • Four-in-Hand
  • Half-Windsor
  • Windsor

A great small knot is the Four-in-Hand knot, which is a popular and necessary knot to know and use. The Windsor forms a symmetrical knot which is great for formal occasions.

Another tip is to create a dimple beneath the knot of your tie. This adds a finishing touch of style and can be done by forming a crease in the centre of your tie beneath the knot whilst tying it and then pulling it in to create a lovely fold/ dimple in your tie (See image below).

Tie Dimple

Getting your tie right is important, and now you’re a master.

How Are JMT Ties Manufactured?

 

At James Morton Ties, we put our all into creating the perfect ties for your clubs, businesses, schools and more.

The art of tie-making is a refined one; it requires the processing of raw fibers and creating beautifully crafted ties from different materials and into different sizes to meet specifications.

Design

It all starts with your design, where you pick your patterns, colours and logo placements. We work with you to develop the idea for your tie, either gaining the design from your or working with our in-house designers to create your ideal design. We also have an online Tie Designer Tool to help you visualise your ideas.
Traditionally the tie design was hand drawn, but now we have digital designs to make it easier for the weavers. Our weavers then use computerised silk screen for silk ties in contrast to the manual silk screens that were used in the past.
Once your design is completed and has been confirmed, we send it off to the mill for it to be imprinted onto bolts of silk.

Production

Our quality silk ties are manufactured on a jacquard loom, woven ties on a loom and printed ties are mostly screen printed or digitally printed.
The fabric we use will depend on your specific designs and requirements for the tie. The method we follow will also depend on your needs for costs, purpose, quality and design.

  • custom-football-club-tiesA high quality, well-manufactured tie adds a touch of elegance to casual and formal wear alike – custom logo ties also give the wearer a sense of belonging and unity amongst fellow company or team members.
  • Wearing a custom logo tie not only removes the stress of picking out a tie to suit your outfit – it also instils a sense of pride in your appearance. Whilst wearing a tie, you’re more likely to tuck your shirt in, and all in all dress more sensibly. Ties can also denote professionalism, power, authority and control.

  • Our custom logo ties can be woven or printed using polyester or silk – whichever best suits your requirements. This makes our ties more cost effective as embroidery can be much more expensive than our alternative methods. It’s also difficult to add small details or visual effects / shading to your ties when using embroidery methods. Our printing techniques allow us to replicate your logo on your ties with accuracy.
  • The process of ordering custom ties from us is very straightforward. Simply provide us with any designs briefs and logos you have, and we’ll create artwork which meets your requirements. We can then advise on the best style of tie, material, printing method and more before you place your final order.
  • Our custom logo ties are available in a variety of styles and materials – from silk woven satin weave to woven repp weave ties, standard or clip-on ties, ties with a single logo at the bottom of the material to those with print covering the length of the tie.
