What is a freestyle bow tie?A freestyle bowtie, also referred to as a traditional bowtie, is the most common and regularly worn bowtie type. It consists of a lengthy strip of cloth that features widened ends that are used to manually tie a bow with. While challenging at first to master, the carefully knotted bow of a freestyle bowtie brings with it a stylish yet timeless look that can only add to the charm and sophistication of your attire. Smart, sharp, and sexy. Think James Bond.
What is a pre-tied bow tie?A pre-tied bowtie, also known as a ready-tied bowtie, is a bowtie in which the bow has been previously sewn into shape, giving you a crisp and sharp bow without the hassle of trying to tie the bow yourself. Its ease of use as well as its ready made nature has made it a very popular choice among men who are on the go and without the time to knot up a regular bowtie.
What is the difference between a freestyle bowtie and a pre-tie bowtie?While either style of bowtie brings with it a smart and stylish look, there is a noticeable difference between the two, and that difference is one of convenience. With the pre-tied bowtie, the bow comes pre-crafted, giving you the sharp and handsome look of a regular bowtie without bothering you with the time consuming and difficult dilemma of trying to knot it up yourself. Whereas the freestyle bowtie does not come pre-tied, giving you the liberty to knot the bow up yourself and thus giving you and the bow the freedom and finesse to look smart and casual or to look sharp and elegant, depending on what sort of affair you are preparing for.
Why are freestyle bowties more expensive than pre-tied bowties?The pre-tied bowtie has always worked great for the novice dresser or as a quick fix for today's young and on the go professional who hasn't the time to properly knot his bow. But when it comes to the classic and timeless qualities that have been long associated with the bowtie, it has always been the freestyle bowtie that has come out on top. This is because it carries with it an irresistible finesse, an understated sophistication, an established flavor, that a pre-knotted bow simply put, just never quite obtains. Plus, at the end of the night, when things start to slow down and knots start to loosen up, nothing looks better or more attractive than an untied freestyle bowtie casually set around your neck. And it is exactly that sort of luxury that gives a freestyle bowtie an added bump in price.
What is a zipper tie?The zipper necktie has long been one of our most requested and most popular sales items. This is because it brings a simple yet effective solution to the age old problem of quickly and successfully tying a tie, without resorting to the stiff and frumpy look of a clip-on. It does this by way of a discreet zipper mechanism, attached to the backside of the tie, which allows you to easily slide the knot of your necktie up and down your shirt, giving you the ability to look your best, when it matters most.
To put on a zipper tie, start with your shirt collar up and the tie set around your neck. From here you will need to adjust the knot. To do this, simply take hold of the small end of the tie as well as the knot of the tie. Then, keeping a firm hold of the small end, adjust your tie by pulling the knot up or down your shirt (much like a zipper on a jacket). Once you have your knot set comfortably in place, finish by setting the lock on the backside of the tie (which will keep your tie set firmly in place for as long as you need it) and your necktie will be good to go! And of course once you're done, all you'll need to do is unlock the tie and pull the knot down for an easy and quick removal.
Simply put, the zipper tie has become so popular because it effectively brings together the grace and finesse of a regular necktie with the ease and convenience of a clip-on. A perfect combination.
