No retail markups. Retail space is expensive (especially in Manhattan) and would result in a higher priced tie.
No manufacturing markups, as we are both the manufacturer and designer.
Because our products are Made in the USA, a 7.2% tariff is avoided.
We only buy the finest fabrics from the most exclusive European mills, each of which has their own specialty. Through our ongoing relationships, we know which mill produces the best fabric for each specific product.
Because our ties are made here in New York City and not contracted out, we are able to oversee and ensure that every tie meets our standards of quality.
Every tie is meticulously stitched by hand at a rate of approximately 5 ties per hour, as opposed to hundreds per hour if done by machine.
We only use the most skilled craftsmen, many of which have been with us for decades, and all of who possess a pride in the quality of our products.
Machine-made ties stretch and pull on the fabric, compromising the quality of the material.
Each and every fabric is slightly different. This requires subtle adjustments in the manufacturing process which are not feasible to adjust with machine-made neckwear.
The stitching on handmade ties doesn't pierce through the tie's inner lining, which makes handmade ties more flexible and easier to tie than machine-made ties.
Being the manufacturer enables us to react more quickly to the latest fashion trends, and to create them at the same time. We finalize our designs weeks in advance instead of years.
We are not a large corporation with numerous departments, but a specialist in the art of handmade neckwear. We rely on our customers' feedback to continuously improve our products and services. Website suggestions, design ideas, packaging thoughts and ALL OTHER COMMENTS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME!
We are a family owned business committed to providing the best service possible. If you have a request, we want to know about it, and we'll always do our best to accommodate you.
If you are unhappy with your tie for any reason, we will refund your entire purchase including outbound and return shipping costs.
