Firstly, I would like to thank everyone who attended The Gentleman's Grooming Show last Saturday and visited our Stand! A huge special thanks for the support of our all current clients who attended! This was a great opportunity for clients to see our ties physically. Although majority of people who attended were interested in the grooming products, there were lots of interests in the Shaun Gordon ties. A few people were surprised that they were speaking with the person who actually created the handmade ties and were selling them. One of the conversations, which stood out to me most was one gentleman who spoke about the stigma of wearing ties and how for many years as a salesman, he was forced to wear a tie and felt resentful about it. This is such a shame because wearing a tie is one of the very few ways a man can actually express his style through accessorising. Meaning wearing your classic navy double breasted suit for five days without anyone consciously noticing.
During the day many attendees were keen to enter the Free Mystery Tie Prize Draw Competition, which is open to everyone NOW! If you are interested in subscribing for your chance to win a free tie then click this link!

Good news for everyone who uses PayPal because it is now available to use at checkout. Providing you peace of mind and convenience when purchasing your luxury ties.

During the lead up to the Gentleman's Grooming Show I managed to get round to making a few extra ties to display, which were the Montague tie and the Leonard tie. There are only one left of each style. However as soon as the Leonard tie (striped) went live on the website's shop, it sold immediately - I was quiet impressed (smiling)! So, If you have been thinking about buying the Montague tie do not leave it till last minute as it is the last one left! If you double click on photo it will take you to the shop page
Last But Not Least!
