Pocket Squares - High-end vs Mainstrean a leading online supplier of Men's Neckties, Bowties and Ascots has just received their new line of Italian Pocket Squares.

A brief explanation of a high end pocket square:

These pocket squares are in a different league to the mass produced pocket squares. They are typically carried only by high end department stores and men's stores and sell for between $55.00- $95.00. They are a lot more vibrant. The colors are up to date with the latest fashions and more importantly the designs and patterns are very unique. If you like to be different and stand out in a crowd then this is what you want in a pocket square.
You will not find a tie to match. These are meant to compliment and complete an outfit.

The high end pocket squares are made from silk that is either woven or printed for the sole purpose of making a pocket square. The edges are also rolled and hand stitched.
It is for this reason that you will see many designs where the borders are different to the centre of the pocket square. There are also solid pocket squares where the pocket square is divided into four equal quarters with each being a different shade of the color. For example four shades of Pink , Green or Blue.

A brief explanation of a regular pocket square

In short regular pocket squares are cut from the same fabric as the ties are made from. The price of these range from $8.00 - $18.00. The determing factor is the size of the pocket square and the type of fabric used. A large silk pocket square will cost a lot more than a smaller silk or polyester pocket square

Now we are not saying that there is anything wrong with the regular pocket squares. In fact has a large selection of these pocket squares which can be found on our web-site on the regular pocket square page.

A pocket square is a relatively cheap way to make an outfit stand out. It conveys a message of style and sophistication. It expresses ones personality. It makes the outfit.

So whether you are looking for a gift or for something to complete your outfit why not pick up a couple of our Italian Pocket Squares.

Silk or Polyester - Which is best for me? a leading supplier of online men's silk neckties, bowties, ascots and men's accessories carries a full line of both men's silk neckties and men's polyester novelty neckties. only carries Polyester neckties in the Novelty Ties category. All other categories are made from silk.

To know what's the correct material for you it is good to know the difference between a silk necktie and a polyester necktie.


Silk is made from silk worms and is a natural fiber. Silk is more breathable than polyester although this is not an important factor when choosing a men's necktie, bowtie or ascot.
Being a natural fiber silk is more expensive than polyester thus a silk necktie will be more expensive than a polyester necktie.


Polyester is made from petrochemicals. Polyester looks like silk except the older types of polyester are non-iron and the fabric is not breathable so you get very hot and sweaty.
Once again this is not an important factor when choosing a men's necktie, bowtie or ascot.
As polyester is essentially a plastic man made fiber and it is a lot cheaper than a silk necktie.

A major plus for polyester is being that it is a man made fiber it absorbs dye's a lot better than silk. It is for this reason that the majority of novelty neckties are printed on polyester rather than silk.

How to tell the difference between Silk and Polyester

Fabric technology has advanced so much over the last decade that it is very difficult to tell the difference between a silk woven necktie and a polyester woven necktie.
There are many ways to test if a necktie is silk or polyester. The quickest way is to look at the content tab as this will state what fabric the necktie is made from. Other more technical ways are available and can be found by researching the web.

So to answer the question of which necktie is best for you a silk necktie or a polyester necktie it is up to the individual.

If you are looking for a necktie that is of a high quality then go for the silk necktie, bowtie or ascot.
If you are looking for a novelty necktie then the polyester necktie will look better as the colors will be richer and brighter.
If on a strict budget then you would definitely want to go with a polyester necktie.

So why not pick up a couple of neckties today. Remember to Dress for Success.

Boy's Neckties - All you need to know a leading online supplier of Men's Neckties, Bowties and Ascots

has added a new selection of boy's solid ties, boy's dot ties, boy's paisley ties and
boy's pattern ties to their ever increasing assortment of boy's ties.

What is a Boy's Neck Tie?

Not to be confused with a young men's necktie a boy's necktie is a lot shorter and narrower than a men's necktie or **young men's necktie. (** 54-56 inches long and 3 - 3.25 inches wide. )

How Long and wide is a Boy's Neck Tie?

Although size varies the standard length for a boy's necktie is 48-50 inches long with a width of 2.75 - 3 inches at the widest point.

What is the age range for a Boy to wear a boy's necktie?

Typically a male is considered a boy between the ages of 6-10 years old. However a good way to see if your little angel would look good in a boy's tie is to measure the length from the top button of his shirt to the waist line where the belt would be. ( You want the tip of the tie when tied to be around the middle of the belt. )

The length you would want is 14 inches - 17 inches. In this way the extra length would be used in the knot and you would have a necktie that looks and hangs perfectly on your angel.

So mom's and dad's why not pick up a couple of neckties for the little one today. Whether it be for a recital, to attend church, a wedding, a family portrait or for your Christmas card your little one will surely stand out.
