Not Just Another Tie for Dad: New Anchor Neckwear Stays in Place, No Matter What

TAMPA, Fla., June 2, 2010 — A new fashion retailer is offering a novel take on that timeless Father’s Day gift, the tie. The Anchor Neckwear website (http://www.anchorties.com) features 100-percent silk handcrafted neckties that securely “anchor” to dress shirts so they stay in perfect position all day, enabling wearers to look polished and professional at every moment.

“Anchor Neckwear has solved every fundamental problem with the standard necktie,” said Joseph Sale, founder of Anchor Ties. “Men will never again have to worry about their ties swaying out of place, dipping into plates, cups or sinks, being blown over their shoulder by the wind or otherwise getting in their way. Moreover, Anchor Neckwear is perfect for anyone who has to wear a tie to work, including restaurant and hotel employees, doctors and salesmen.”

Anchor Ties feature a patent-pending design with two elastic strips that attach to two buttons on a dress shirt, securely keeping the entire tie “anchored” in place. In addition, all the ties include a concealed pocket where wearers can discreetly store business cards, credit cards, money, an iPod or any other small, flat item. Even the Anchor Neckwear label is strategically positioned to catch the small end of the tie, regardless of how the wearer ties it.

When Sale worked as a Fortune 500 account executive, he often noticed that his tie and those of his clients were out of place. When he lost his job, he recalled those incidents and decided to launch a new business that could provide a solution. After developing many different prototypes, he hit on the idea for Anchor Ties and founded Anchor Neckwear in November 2008. “Simply put, Anchor Neckwear is the most functional line of neckwear available, which is why our slogan is that it’s the only tie that works for you,” he stated.

Retailing for $30 each, the 30 silk neckties in the Anchor Neckwear collection are available in a variety of colors and patterns, including solids, stripes, port paisleys as well as patterns of dots, wheels and geometric shapes. The website offers e-mailed gift certificates for last-minute purchases or for those who prefer to let Dad choose for himself.

Currently, the ties are only available at the website, but Sale’s plans include not only exclusive designs but also retail distribution, partnerships and wholesale opportunities for retailers or individuals. Anchor Ties may also be customized with branding on the inner label for corporate promotions or gifts.

In addition to creating the Anchor Neckwear portal, Sale has built a social media base to stay in touch with fashion-conscious professionals. Anchor Neckwear fans can access his TIE Life blog, a YouTube channel containing local television coverage of his ties (http://www.youtube.com/user/AnchorTies), a Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/anchorneckwear) and a Twitter page (http://twitter.com/anchorneckwear). In addition to posting feedback, individuals will enjoy Sale’s posts and tips on such subjects as tying a Windsor knot.

If only you had an Anchor Tie, you wouldn’t look like this!

I see it every day! Guys who put a lot of effort into how they look. Wearing a suit, freshly pressed shirt, shined shoes, fine watch, and a beautiful tie. Of those items, there is only one that can make you look like a fool…YOUR TIE!

Take a look at President Barack Obama on a trip to Florida in 2009. As you can see, his tie is the first thing you notice!

Here is another photo of the President exiting Air Force One. Again, his tie is flapping in the wind!

A couple of examples of how the tie you wear can often precede you. It is one of my goals to get Barack to wear one during his time in office. Could you imagine if he wore an Anchor Tie during the State of the Nation address and actually spoke about it? Help an entrepreneur out Obama!

What does your tie say about you?

“As rich in meaning and as expressive as a poem, a tie gives a man his own language”. Stated by Gary Cooper in 1933.

This is a bold, yet very true statement. Your tie says more about you than you may have previously imagined.

What does your tie say about you?

While the picture of Gary Cooper is in black and white, the elegance and professional attire are the first things you notice. Regardless of the tie’s color, it is worn properly, paired nicely with a pocket square, and is in perfect position. You can tell, Gary Cooper was a man of distinction, class, and a true gentleman.

While Gary Cooper was before my time, he influenced many through his acting and off screen lifestyle.  Being fashion forward doesn’t take much, except for concerted thought and follow through.

Wear your Anchor Ties with confidence, knowing it will never get in your way or sway out of place, others WILL notice just how good you look!
