ABC Neckties Review and Giveaway

I recently won a contest to receive a necktie from ABC Neckties. I had previously shown my husband the site and he had found many ties he loved. He has to wear a dress shirt and tie every day, and gets tired of the same ones all the time. He says ties are the accessory for a man, much like jewelry or purses for a woman. It's the only real article of clothing that shows his personality or taste. An outfit of navy slacks and a white dress shirt can look the same every day if it doesn't have a tie to change it up.

One he particularly liked was listed in the "brown" ties. He said he currently didn't have a good brown tie he could wear with his brown dress pants and wanted a new one. So I ordered it wondering how the quality would be since the price seemed so reasonable. The tie just arrived and WOW! I'm very pleased. This tie is beautiful and of a quality I can certainly appreciate. I've bought ties for him that cost much more that were not as nice as this tie.




They conveniently have their ties divided into categories that make it simple to find what you're looking for. Want a silk tie? Then search under the STYLE categories for silk ties. Need a certain color tie to match an outfit or suit? They also have them divided by color. I wanted a brown tie so clicked on the category brown.

And of course everyone needs a cartoon tie! Or a tabasco tie! They even categories for those too!







Or how about a tie to support your favorite sports team. I see lots of Colts ties--Go Colts!






Whatever color or style, from dressy to whimsical, you'll find a tie here to meet those needs. They even have bow ties and big and tall ties.

Well the lovely Haley from ABC Neckties has offered to give one of my readers a tie of their choice. What a great deal. So go over and check out all the great choices they have and enter to win one of your own.

  19. My favorites are the Hawaiian neckties. My Mom was born in Hawaii and I grew up there. I also met my husband when we were in high school together in Hawaii, so I know he likes Hawaiian prints. I like the Hawaiian Island Necktie as well as the other Hawaiian necktie I chose in my previous comment.
