How your tie looks says a lot about you. Your tie is an extension of you. Taking care of your tie tells others about your attention to detail. It shows people that you're well-organized and thoughtful.

When you invest in a tie that says so much about you, you need to get the most out of your investment. After all, it's important to care for your investments. And when it's as easy as taking care of your tie, why not?

Here's a quick and easy 2-step guide to taking care of your tie:

Step 1: Avoid New Wrinkles and Unknot Your Tie

Undo your tie by reversing the process for tying. It's the best way to avoid adding new wrinkles or putting additional stress on the tie.

Leaving your tie tied is tempting. However, 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 undo your tie, 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. Pulling too hard can damage the fabric, shape, and lining. It puts undue stress on the stitching - ultimately ruining your tie.

Step 2: Roll Up Your Tie and Store It

Don't fold or hang your tie because it imprints wrinkles and stress lines into the fabric - especially silk. Avoid any temptation to iron your tie by rolling it up when not in use.

Every one of Aklasu's ties comes with what we call the Canister®. If you've got one, store your tie in it. If not, don't panic, place your rolled up tie into a drawer. The goal is to roll and protect. How you choose to accomplish this is up to you.

One last thing. You may love your tie and want to wear it every day, but it's important to give your ties a break too. Consistent care and occasional breaks will help your ties look their best every time you wear them.
