Ties coming undone?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone,

 

My new job requires ties as part of the dress code.

 

Over the past year I have found a few of my ties coming loose/undone at the back. A really thin thread that holds them together at the back is breaking.

 

I think I might be taking them off incorrectly. Not sure what else would cause this to happen.

 

I have attached a photo which shows what is happening.

 

I usually tie my ties in a half windsor knot.

Does anyone know if a regular tailor can fix this? Would it be expensive?

 

Anyone else have this happen with their ties?

 

Thanks for any help!

You can fix that yourself if you know how to sew.

Any tailor can fix that easily.

1. To avoid this to happen, untie the tie by reversing the steps. Don't remove tie by the conventional quick pull, that puts too much stress on the tie.
2. Normal tailor can fix it, but they will stitch the thread end directly to the tie, defeating the purpose of this thread.
3. The best way is to send to Tie Crafters.

Thanks for the advice onix. Its probably not worth it for me to send these to Tie Crafters even though I am sure they can fix them properly.

 

I got them on sale for around $15-$18 so I would be spending more to repair them.

 

I will just buy new ones and be more careful with them from now on.
