Where is the best place to buy a tie? We'll reveal all the recommended ways to choose!

A tie is an essential part of the fashion of businessmen, especially those in white-collar sales positions.

Ties are not only a fashion accessory that decorates the neck, but also an item that demonstrates sincerity to those involved in business transactions or negotiations.

Wearing a dirty or wrinkled tie not only gives a bad impression of you, but also of the company.

This time, we will introduce where to buy ties, how to choose them, and recommended ways to choose them .

1. Where can I buy ties?

Neckties can be purchased at a variety of stores. Some are inexpensive, while others are expensive brand-name items.
In an emergency, ties can be purchased at 100-yen shops and are cheap, but they don't require much effort in terms of materials or stitching, so they can easily fray and are easy to notice. It's not nice to give a bad impression that you can't even afford a decent tie.
On the other hand, you should also be careful about wearing expensive brand-name items. If you are a new employee and have brand-name items, you may be seen as a cocky person who is still not yet confident in your job and is only concerned with your appearance.
We recommend a tie that is neither too cheap nor too expensive .
So let's take a look at where you can buy ties.

Department stores Department stores

High-quality ties are available at department stores.
Here are some of the more well-known department stores.

  • Mitsukoshi Isetan
  • Daimaru Matsuzakaya
  • Takashimaya
  • Tokyu Department Store
  • Hankyu Department Store
  • Kintetsu Department Store

At department stores like the ones mentioned above, you can purchase high-quality ties with a good balance between price and material. They stock ties ranging from around 5,000 yen to over 30,000 yen.
Basically, department stores have buyers who are purchasing specialists who determine the quality and grade of products.
Department stores do not stock many cheap-looking ties, so if you want something a little more expensive but of good quality, something you can confidently show off when exchanging business cards, it is a good idea to go to a department store.

100 Yen shop 100 Yen shop

Neckties are also available at 100 yen shops.
You can get the cheapest ties here, but don't expect quality.
Many of the ties sold at 100 shops are made using synthetic fibers and tend to look cheap.

Men's clothing store Men's clothing store

The standard place to buy a tie is a men's clothing store.
Neckties available at men's clothing stores are relatively affordable, ranging from 3,000 to 10,000 yen.
There are many different types of men's clothing stores.

  • ONLY
  • AOKI in suits
  • THE SUITS COMPANY (Aoyama Clothing) etc...

If you go to a department store, there will always be a men's clothing section, so I recommend that.
The advantage of a men's clothing store is that it is entirely business-oriented. There is almost no reason why something sold at a men's clothing store would not be suitable for business.
You can choose a tie that suits the business situation and it is hard to go wrong.
Depending on the men's clothing store, you may be able to get a good deal by buying in bulk and getting a discount.
Many new employees may be unsure of what kind of suit, tie, tie pin, etc. they should have.
If you go to a men's clothing store, you can rest assured that if you tell the staff that you are a new employee, they will be able to recommend items and give you advice on what to wear that will not violate business etiquette.
If you ask the store clerk, you can't go wrong.

online shop online shop

The most popular place to purchase ties is online shops.
The biggest advantage of online shopping is that you can compare many ties at once.
Also, shops without physical stores do not incur extra expenses and are often able to sell relatively inexpensive, high-quality ties.
Unlike clothes or shoes, it's almost impossible to buy the wrong size tie.
I recommend doing a Google search for "high quality ties" and you'll quickly find the tie you want.


2. How to choose a tie.

The tie plays an important role in determining the style of your suit. There are certain points to keep in mind when choosing a tie, such as the material and how to tie it.
Among these, be sure to check the material of the tie.
Necktie materials can be broadly divided into two types: natural materials and synthetic fiber materials.
Let's take a look at each one.
Broadening your knowledge about materials will make shopping at online stores that much more enjoyable.

Natural materials

Natural materials used in ties include silk, wool, cotton, and linen.
Silk is often used by high-end brands, and a material called "Kyoto silk" is a material that has attracted attention worldwide, having been used at "Paris Fashion Week."
Wool is also a popular material, often used for "autumn and winter ties" due to its appearance and warmth.
When choosing a tie, you can't go wrong with one that is made of 100% silk or wool.

Chemical fiber material

Materials called synthetic fibers, such as polyester and rayon, are generally inexpensive and may not give a very good impression.
However, synthetic fiber materials are surprisingly compatible with ties as they are less likely to lose their shape and can be washed.
I think the advantage of being able to wash ties, which we wear every day, in our home washing machine is great.
Compared to natural materials, it may lack the thickness and luxury feel, but the advantage of being "washable" is great for everyday use.
