What to Wear on St George’s Day

Although in the past there has been less celebration of the day than for other Patron Saints, such as Patrick, David and Andrew, St George’s Day appears to be growing in significance. There are events planned for over the Easter break as well as on the day itself and the following weekend. Those wishing to show pride in the Patron Saint of England have plenty of options....

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

Pontefract Races – Ladies Day 2017

It is indicative of how fast this year is going that a fortnight has passed since Ladies Day 2017 at Pontefract Racecourse. This year heavy overnight rain almost threw a spanner in the works but thankfully the day itself saw much drier weather. The state of the course was also much better than could have been feared and it was a day for favourite backers in terms of the betting. Ladies Day is always one of the best attended days of the year at Pontefract Racecourse and given that it... Read More
