Most of us start of thinking that ties are horrible and that they’re just uncomfortable but as you know, it’s an accepted manner of dress in today’s business environment. Whether you purchase your tie at Harry Rosen or at Goodwill, you want them to last and that means you have to take care of them, that’s where we come in.
The best thing you can possibly do make your ties stay wrinkle-free and presentable are to hang them up properly. DO NOT leave them knotted and just hung up. The creases will become permanent and your tie will begin to look off side and unprofessional. As you can imagine, there are many types of tie holders out there. Tie holders range from simple holders you screw in to the wall to fancy ones that glide in and out of your closet to a cool device called a tie hanger. Look below for cool pics 🙂
Another manner of storing your ties are to curl them up like belts. I’ve seem them coiled up and placed on their sides or folded over a few times and gently placed in small square cubicles in a drawer. These are both acceptable practices and again, this all depends on how much space you have and how much space you want to devote to storing them.
All I know is that if you hang them up vertically, I find that sooner or later the wrinkles from normal wear gradually work themselves out. If the wrinkles on your tie persist, consider steaming them. Never iron your ties since they are generally made from silk or another delicate fabric and if you decide to take them to your cleaners, don’t have them pressed since that compresses the fabric and ruins the edge.
One last thing to remember, a sharp tie can make your wardrobe pop! And nothing is better than coming to Space Age Closets & Custom Cabinetry to get the perfect place to store your wardrobe!~
