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).

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.

The Benefits of Custom Logo Ties from James Morton

 

A good logo can give any business or club a much-needed identity. It not only makes it easier for people to identify you and your brand, it also helps you stand out from your competition. So why not make the most of your marketing by ordering custom logo ties from James Morton Ties. Here are just a few of the benefits of ordering from us:

  • 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. You can also soften this by choosing a more informal colour or style, if you’re looking for a more laid-back approach.
  • 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.
  • We also have a variety of accessories for sale, to compliment your logo ties.
