I found a coupon code online. Why doesn't it work?
Often times, websites that are unaffiliated with our company will post archived coupon codes that have expired and/or no longer apply to our site. While we do sometimes work with promotional websites to provide you with opportunities for awesome promotions, codes posted on promo sites like these are out of our control and may sometimes be incorrect.
If you find that a coupon code you are using is invalid, we're sorry. It's a depressing feeling, we know. But all is not lost! Be sure to check the banner at the top of our homepage, as well as our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for the inside scoop on our latest deals and sales. And, if you're not subscribed to our newsletter yet, what are you waiting for?
Where can I get a promo code?
Ties.com promo codes can be found in our newsletters, and are sometimes advertised on our social media and on the banner located at the top of our homepage. However, the main way to get the most up-to-date information regarding our latest promotions is our newsletter. By subscribing to our newsletter, we will periodically email you with updates on our newest products, sales, offers, and promo codes. Often, we'll even send exclusive promo codes that are available to our subscribers only. Please refer to the fine print
for our promotions, as terms and conditions will vary.
We have promotions nearly every week and we're always looking for new and exciting ways to offer savings. Subscribe to our newsletter in order to stay up-to-date on current promotions and offers.
How do I add a promo code?
You can add a promo code in the your cart (below the checkout button) or during checkout (right about the credit card fields). If the code is valid, the discount will appear immediately and your total will be updated.
Please note that promo codes cannot be applied after an order has been processed.
Sometimes, our deals do not require a promo code and are applied automatically. If this is the case, we will clearly state this in our newsletters and fine print.
How do promo codes affect my return?
If you decide to return items that have a discount, the amount refunded will be subject to the minimum spending amount of the promo. This means that if the items returned bring the new order total below the minimum spending amount necessary to use the promo, the discounted amount will be deducted from the refund. Discounts and discount thresholds exclude postage and packaging. If the original order is returned and you would like to reorder another size or color, we cannot reissue a promo code or deduct the discount from your order.

What's the difference between "self tie" and "pre-tied" bow ties?
A self tie bow tie, also referred to as a traditional bow tie, is the most common and regularly worn bow tie 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 self tie bow tie 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.
A pre-tied bow tie, also known as a ready-tied bow tie, is a bow tie 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 bow tie.
While either style of bow tie 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 bow tie, the bow comes pre-crafted, giving you the sharp and handsome look of a regular bow tie without bothering you with the time consuming and difficult dilemma of trying to knot it up yourself. The self tie bow tie 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.
