Tie Me Up
Tie me up! Ties say a lot about a person. What do your ties say about you? Do your ties match your personality? Your clothes? Are they outdated? Are you wearing the right ties? Do you know when to wear a necktie vs a bowtie? Do you know how to tie a tie? How to properly store your ties? Do you know how to get lipstick and other stains off your tie? Are you dressed for success? This lens answers some of the basic questions about ties and includes a How To Tie a Tie chart and video. You can also shop for ties, customize a tie with your own photo, logo or slogan, and purchase tie organizers.
Choosing A Tie
One of the most important things to focus on in choosing a tie is the pattern. There are thousands of different styles and designs and patterns that it can seem overwhelming. One thing to remember is that you can't go wrong with a solid tie (as long as it matches your shirt and coat). If you are in doubt over a certain type of pattern, the best idea is to have no pattern at all.
If you do decide to choose a tie with a pattern, some of the basic designs include stripes and polka-dots and geometric shapes. Others include more outlandish designs that feature logos, cartoon characters and landscapes. Some ties are obviously designed with nothing but fun in mind, like the sports ties for sale on this lens. These types of ties are fun for to promote your favorite sports team or chartoon character, but you may want to think twice about wearing them in the boardroom.
It's also important to think about the material when you choose a tie. It should be strong enough to make a good knot, and this strength typically comes from the lining of coarse fabric that is sewn into the lining of most ties. Silk makes the best kind of tie, but without a good lining, silk ties can be to thin to make credible knots. Ties made from a fabric that blends silk with polyester are also nice. Ties made from wool or cottonare also nice but typically don't wear quite as nicely.

Lipstick Stained Shirts
Stain your shirt? You don't have to cover it with a tie or throw it away.
To remove lipstick from a shirt, gently dab the lipstick stain with an alcohol swab. Use cold water if you don't have alcohol. Next, apply a handful of clothes detergent and rub into the lipstick blotch with just one finger. Certain detergents are more adept to chase away lipstick stains, as lipstick is oil-based; thus, products that fight grease specifically are ideal. Now your stained shirt is ready to be tossed in the washing machine.
Dawn is also great for fighting lipstick stains.
Ammonia and hairspray sometimes do the trick too!
