Neckties from Bows-N-Ties.com - Review

I had the wonderful opportunity to participate in a review of a beautiful necktie from Bows-N-Ties.com.  We received this dark blue tie made by Cavallieri.  Their website says that this brand of ties are made with the finest silk and usually retail for about $50-$60, but they carry them for just $24.90.

The tie I received is a navy blue with a gentle pattern on it.  The first thing I noticed was that the tie was a great length for my husband.  He is 6'1", so most ties we find are way to short for him.  This one is 58" long and 3.5" wide.  The tie is also very substantial-it's not something that's going to disintegrate in just a couple of years.  It is thicker than your average discount store tie and feels great.

This tie also stands up very well to abuse.  My husband used a tie tack with his tie, but inadvertently put it on through the label.  Like I said before, this tie is a heavier weight that he's used to and when he put the tie tack through both parts, and the tag, it jammed up the release mechanism for the tie tack.  He couldn't manage to get the tie tack off when we got back from church.  I had to loosen the tie, get the shirt off of him and then pry the back of the tie tack off with a couple pairs of pliers.  The back went shooting off and the tie tack had entrenched itself with a barb into the tie.  After getting it off of the tie, I was sure that it was going to have damaged it beyond repair, but it didn't.  The silk didn't snag like I expected and the hole created by the event smoothed out so nice that you can't even see it.



It's for sure that we won't be buying $10 Wal-Mart ties any longer......Bows-N-Ties.com has found themselves a new customer.  My husband loves the way it fits and feels and I love the way it looks on him.  I highly encourage you to take a look around their site to see all the colors and patterns they have.  I'd bet you can find a tie to suit any style you want.  I found ties from under $10 on their site that looked really good and shipping starts at $4.90, but is free with orders over $100.

As a special offer to my readers, Bows-N-ties.com has offered a special discount code good for 20% off your entire order!  Just use code TR239YU at checkout.  If my math is correct and you get one $24.90 tie, this discount code makes your shipping basically free!
