The Secret Service needs to wear Anchor Ties, it’s a matter of National Security!

Thursday, June 24th, 2010

We all know that President Obama could stand to use a tie that stays in place (see previous post). But what about the people that protect him? The Secret Service is comprised of some of America’s top agents, who dedicate their life to saving the President in any situation. What would happen if their necktie ever got in the way?  Here is a terrific example of a couple Secret Service agents with their tie’s out of place, which could lead to a distraction of epic proportions.

As you can see, if the Secret Service are going to wear ties, it makes perfect sense to wear a tie that stays in place. It will never get in their way, fly over their shoulder, or sway out of place. Anchor Ties do more than any other tie, they could even save the life of President Obama!

Here are a couple more pictures of Secret Service agents wearing ties.

That tie is terrible!

President Obama, let’s make this happen. Help support an entrepreneur, give yourself and your agents a tie that actually WORKS for THEM!

Live the Tie Life Mr. President!

Anchor Neckwear Review turns into a Testimonial, guys love wearing Anchor Ties!

Friday, June 11th, 2010

I received this wonderful testimonial from someone who wore an Anchor Tie for the first time.

“I thoroughly enjoy wearing my Anchor Tie and that is a big hurdle because I am not a tie guy. Whenever the occasion forces me to dawn a tie I am usually frustrated. This is in part because I tie a full windsor, not for any other reason than I really like the way it looks. This has always left me with a problem because the nubbin of tie left over is always too short to do anything with except tuck it into my shirt up high, and it is always noticeable. So when Anchor Tie boasted that their Anchor Neckwear label was strategically positioned to catch the small end of the tie, regardless of how you tie it… I was curious to put it to the test. I was very pleased to find out that it did exactly what it said and it passed with flying colors!

Another nice function of this tie, is how it anchors to your dress shirt keeping your tie in place no matter if you lean over or find yourself walking through a windy part of town. This is made possible through elastic bands with button holes on the top and bottom of the concealed pocket. It’s nice that the elastic was placed at the top and bottom, so it is sure to work for everyone. It doesn’t pull or put strain on your neck, and works great regardless of height and style of shirt worn.

If you haven’t checked out Anchor Tie, whether you wear a tie on a daily basis or one every couple of years, you are missing out! This is a tie that dad would in-fact love to receive for Father’s Day or any other day of the year.”

Live the Tie Life,

See what makes Anchor Ties better than any other!

If you find yourself asking, “how do those Anchor Ties stay in place?”, let me take a moment to explain. Simply put, Anchor Ties do more than any other necktie available. Each Anchor Tie features two elastic strips that attach to two buttons on your dress shirt, keeping the entire tie in perfect position. Here is a picture of how the elastic strips attach to your dress shirt:

As you can see, the elastic strips can go up or down to the nearest button. Regardless of how you tie your ties or where your tie falls, there will be a button available for each elastic strip.

Here is another view showing how the elastic strips and how they securely attach to the buttons. You can also see the Anchor Design in the tie tipping, a classy touch!

So now you can see for yourself just how functional Anchor Neckwear is. Never worry about your tie getting in the way again. When you wear one, you will find yourself noticing other’s ties out of place and often showing off your Anchor Tie to others. You won’t want to wear your old ties again!

One more feature of Anchor Ties, the Anchor Neckwear Label is strategically placed 6 inches higher than the fabric loop and most other tie labels. Not only is it a label, it catches the small part of the tie, regardless of how you tie your knots. Can your ties do that?

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 ( 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 (, a Facebook page ( and a Twitter page ( In addition to posting feedback, individuals will enjoy Sale’s posts and tips on such subjects as tying a Windsor knot.
