What to Wear for a Job Interview

An interview for a job you would like can be a nerve-wracking experience. There is an array of advice on how you should prepare for interviews and the best way to behave in the interview itself. However, preparation is key and few would argue that being dressed appropriately is a key starting point. There is an old adage that you should dress for the job you want, not the job you have and this continues to be sage advice. It is difficult to overdress for an interview. We would suggest...

Dressing for a day at the races in May?

Last weekend saw the QIPCO Guineas Festival at Newmarket with the 1,000 Guineas for colts on Saturday 4th May and the 2,000 Guineas for fillies on Sunday 5th May.

Funeral Ties

Although it is an occasion most people would prefer to avoid altogether if possible, attending a funeral is a time when it is important to dress appropriately. Funerals often happen with very little notice and for those close to the deceased there are countless matters which need to be dealt with in a short space of time. This means that where ties are ordered for funerals, we are fully aware that suitable items must be delivered quickly and efficiently. It is at times like this that the level of customer...

A Review of 2018 for Ties Planet

As the turn of the year approaches, we look back on the last year at Ties Planet. Having been formed in 2006 we have certainly seen some interesting times in our early years but 2018 has perhaps been the most eventful yet! The cold weather meant that scarves and thick scarves were very much order of the day in the first few months of the year. Turning to politics, we have been able to cater for both Brexiteers and Europhiles. Union Jack and EU Flag ties and cufflinks are amongst... Read More
