GIVEAWAY: ABC Neckties' Stylish, Quality and Affordable Ties (2 winners!)

{This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who entered!}

What is it about a man in a suit and tie that is just so attractive? I love my husband in a great pair of jeans or a cute sweater... but the days he needs to dress up for work and comes out in slacks, a crisp shirt and a nice tie, well, it's just so darn sexy.

My husband is fairly particular about his clothes and his suits are no exception. Shopping with him for a new button-up shirt or tie is usually a long and tiring experience as he manages to come up with something wrong with most of the options that are in the store. "No, too bright," is his response to anything with too much color and "Ugh, too busy," is his answer to most patterns.

His most common complaint, however, is about the cost. Even though my husband does need to wear his suit for work occasionally, spending upwards of $30 or $40 for a tie is just something he doesn't like to do. Therefore, when I told him I had found a website where he could find the best brands and models of quality ties that are priced under $25, I had definitely peaked his interest.


A member of the Affordable Style Network (home of such sites as HandbagHeaven.com and AffordableScarves.com, ABCNeckties.com is the place to go when shopping online for the finest ties at great prices. When you visit, you won't find just a small, out-of-date selection, instead you'll discover a tie to match every occasion or fit any man's fashion requirements (including picky ones like my husband).

Looking for something clean and classic? Try the Allen Fashion Silk Tie (at right), handmade out of 100% silk for a simple, yet timeless style. I also really love the look of a bold striped tie to bring in a little color while still staying modern and professional and the Brooks Striped Silk Tie (at left) would be a great addition to any man's wardrobe.

As well as having a large array of traditional ties, ABC Neckties also carries a huge novelty selection, where ties in all shapes, sizes and colors are sure to make a statement. Looking to get a few laughs? Try showing up at an event wearing the Foot Long Necktie (at right) and see how many people can not make a comment about it.

Or, for more intellectual humor, I think the Crossword Puzzle Necktie (at left) would be a fun way to draw attention without being too overly silly or bright. There are even 30 different Collegiate Ties that come in a multitude of striped combinations, so whether your team's colors are red and white or navy and orange, the sports fan you know can show off his team pride in his tie.

As for my husband, he narrowed it down to Silk Ties and then Blue Ties and ended up with his favorite being the Light Blue Woven Grid Silk Tie, one that can be used for any number of occasions and with a variety of different shirts and pants. I think he was secretly expecting a poor quality tie to show up, but when the box appeared (only a day or two later), I could tell from the look on his face that he was pleased. Not too long after, I found that he had been matching up the tie with various outfits to see how it looked:


The result? A definite thumbs up from my male fashionista. The tie looks great and is just as nice as the ones he owns that cost at least twice as much. Whether shopping for a gift or just a new accessory, ABC Neckties is the place to look for whatever style, color or type of need a man might need. From the classic neckties to colorful bow ties to Clip On or Pre-Tied Ties for the man who might not be as skilled at tying a tie, ABC Neckties has it all.

Not only that, they fully stand behind their products and offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee and hassle-free returns as part of their high level of customer service. You can't go wrong! Thanks to the generosity of ABCNeckties.com, two people will have a great gift for the man in their life, because...

Two lucky people will win the tie of their choice from ABC Neckties!
