The S&W’s ties are handmade, stain resistant and premium quality. Help yourself with these tips on how to keep them looking well, as awesome as you do.
KEEP A ROTATION
1. DON’T WEAR THEM OUT
Every guy’s got their favorites—but the best way to keep your ties in great condition? Stock up and start a rotation.
2. MULTIPLE TIES FOR EACH OUTFIT
A good rule of thumb? Invest in three or four ties that go with each suit or sport coat.
3. HANG IT WITH THE SUIT
Give yourself easy access by keeping ties hung on the suit they go with, draping them around the collar of the coat.
4. INVEST IN A TIE RACK
Organize all of your ties in one place using a tie rack or organizer. This way, you can easily see your options (and what additions or subtractions to make to your collection).
When removing your tie, untie the knot by reversing the method used to tie it (don’t put the small end of your tie through the knot). After removing, hang the tie on a tie rack or coat collar, or roll it up in a tie organizer.
Don’t leave the tie knotted (it’ll permanently crease the fabric).
Place the tie on its tie rack overnight.
A BIT STUBBORN
If that doesn’t work, roll up the tie, small end first and let it sit for a day.
We give you permission to steam the tie—but resist the urge to iron it (you’ll risk ruining it).
Ties by S&W are made of silk, cotton, or linen. We’ll go ahead and warn you—removing stains on silk is tricky. A good rule of thumb? Always blot the stain (don’t rub).
For water-soluble stains, use a clean cloth and dab with a small amount of seltzer water.
For oil-based stains, talcum powder may pull it out.
Serious stains can be removed with spot remover or other mild cleaning agents. Test first on the back of the tie to be sure the remover won’t damage it.
Go ahead and take it to a dry cleaner you trust.
