DAZI How To Properly Care For Your Ties

We recently came across an article on Insider Monkey talking about the 10 most expensive ties in the world. Ties ranged from Ralph Lauren's Black Label Tie at $155 all the way up to a whopping $220,000 for The Suashish tie designed by The Satya Paul Design Studio back in 2003. Seriously?! Ok maybe that's because it's lined with 150 grams of gold and studded with 271 diamonds, but doesn't that seem outrageous for a tie? We think so. Even the least expensive tie on their list seems a little steep at $155.

That is a big reason behind the birth of DAZI in 2015. We noticed that skinny ties, especially those with fun designs, were starting to be a big trend among young adults. But we had such a hard time finding ties for a decent price that we decided to start making our own (you can read more about our story here). We have sold thousands of ties all across the world and had less returns than you can count on one hand. Now we think that's something worth celebrating! We are very proud of the high quality products we create and aim to keep pumping out stuff that people will love. It's motivating to read reviews and hear about your satisfaction!

We understand that you work hard for your money. We don't charge you an arm and a leg to compensate for high quality, and we definitely want you to feel like you get your moneys worth. We're confident that if cared for properly, your ties will last for years to come. One of our customers, Cody, has been wearing our ties for over a year and couldn't say anything better about them:

"To care for my DAZI ties, I always hang them on my tie rack when I am done wearing them. I was a little nervous about one tie in particular where I spilled a little food on it, but they dry clean well! Anyways, I wear a DAZI tie 5 days a week for close to 60 hours and it's been over 12 months and they are holding up outstandingly."

We've put together a list of a few helpful tips to keep your ties looking crisp and clean so they're always fresh and ready to go.

  • Cotton ties sometimes develop funny folds or wrinkles. Tightly roll the tie, beginning at the small end, and store it on a shelf overnight. This helps the tie return to it's natural form.
  • If you're traveling and find a few wrinkles in your tie, hang it in the bathroom while you shower. The steam in the room will help press out some of the wrinkles.
  • Our ties are all made by hand and while they're top quality, they can also be delicate. When removing the tie don't pull vigorously on the knot. Reverse the method you used to tie the knot to prevent the back seam from coming undone over time.
  • Never store your tie with the knot still in it! That will create one heck of a permanent crease.
  • Add more ties to your collection. Seriously, giving your favorite tie a few days rest will make it last longer.
  • Keep out of direct sunlight for extended periods of time as this could dull the colors of your tie. Store in a cool, dry place.
  • Never, under any circumstance, should you lend your ties to a friend. They will wear them, fall in love, and never give them back. This is a sure way to lose your tie.
  • Never use your tie as a napkin or a bib. That's just asking for trouble.
