How many times has it happened that the crisp dimple on your tie disappeared minutes after masterfully forming it under your tie knot, making it look like a flat one dimensional plane? How many times have you cried over the seam at the back of your tie ripping off weeks after you've bought it? Why can't you get rid of that crease on your tie even though you have ironed it so many times already that you've lost count? That's probably because you haven't been purchasing your neckties from the right stores; stores which will make sure that your money is spent well.
They have a myriad number of ties stacked up in each of their stores throughout Dhaka. Neckties which come in any possible colours and pattern you can think of. In addition, they sell them in all three sizes, long, medium and short. Here's a quick tip from one of the best fashion blogs in the world, The Gentleman's Gazette: you can tell if the tie was cut right when it drapes well and doesn't twist if it passes the stretch test. Try to pull perpendicularly the tip of the tie, if it stretches it passes the first stage of the stretch test. Next, pull it at 45 degree angle and it should not stretch. To your joy, all of Top Ten's neckties pass this test.
Previously, this online store sold ties that came in a set along with pocket squares and lapel pins. Well, the good news is that now you can separately buy their ties, hallelujah!
“Most of my ties are made of polyester because they are more affordable and easy to maintain. But for interlining, I use natural materials such as wool and cotton. It helps a tie to drape and get a really nice knot with a dimple in it,” said Shabab Din Shareq, founder of Gentleman's Wardrobe. Ah! I can already see you drooling over that crisp dimple you've manoeuvred underneath your tie knot!
What you'll love is that they have a nice collection of knit ties which is hard to find in Bangladesh. The colours they offer are simple, yet versatile. Although knit ties were previously considered to be worn casually, you can now wear them for business wear too. Buy one of their maroon knit ties for example and rock them to weddings, interviews and work.
If you are in the market for ties and you don't even consider Cats Eye, you are doing it wrong. Vibrant colours, multiple styles, different widths, and jaw dropping designs are all part of the Cats Eye staple and that is very evident with their ties, made for just about any occasion. They even have bow ties if you are in the market for one.
