We firmly believe that products should be made to last. How you care for your investments is equally important. The guide below will help you ensure you get the most out of your ties.
Quick 2-Step Process
1. Unknot your tie by following the reverse process for tying.
2. Roll up your tie and store it in your AKLASU Canister® or drawer so it's shielded from harm's way.
The key to getting the most out of your investment is proper care. Two areas of attention are untying and storage. UntyingIt’s tempting to leave your tie tied. This practice is harmful and will permanently crease the fabric. With just a few seconds you can ensure your tie lasts for years to come. To untie your tie, simply follow the “reverse tying process.” Loosen up the tie a bit and bring the widest portion through the knot. Once that’s done, unravel the tie in the reverse direction of how it was originally tied. If you’re pulling hard on your tie to get it unknotted then you’re doing it wrong. If you do this you can damage the fabric, shape, and lining and put undue stress on the stitching - ultimately ruining your tie.
Give your ties a break.
StorageThe next step is to roll it up. Once it’s rolled, place it in The Canister® that it arrived in. This ensures that the tie will remain in mint condition and wrinkle-free. The Canister® is a great place to store the tie, as it can be stacked in your closet or kept in your drawer and protected from the elements. Following these instructions will ensure that your tie remains in top shape for many years to come.
