Free clothing coupons can be found in a variety of locations. A simple online search will turn up a number of web sites for clothing coupons such as shopbycoupons.com, couponcraze.com, and ebates.com, to name a few. Other clothing coupons may be obtained through memberships of other stores. For example, signing up with Borders Rewards program and opting for email subscription notifications of good deals on affiliated products will often return clothing coupons for stores like Nordstrom. Clothing coupons can also be obtained, in many cases, directly from clothing company web sites by looking at sales or clearance sections of the page, or directly from stores by shopping with them frequently and signing up for mailing lists and catalogues.
Clothing discounts can be very helpful when shopping for formal wear and office or business attire, as these items can become rather expensive. Even small accessories, such as neckties, can cost up to a hundred dollars a piece for designer brands, and around twenty dollars a piece for generic store brands. Novelty ties can be even more expensive, regardless of the fabric from which they are made. More minute accessories, such as tie pins and tie clips, can add up quickly too.
Discounts for neckties are all over the Internet. Many exclusively online stores provide basic ties for very low prices (sometimes even less than five dollars a piece) or ties that can be personalized in color and style for the same price or slightly higher prices than you might find in a department store (but this way you're getting exactly what you're looking for). Other online stores cater to bulk orders, offering discounts for large numbers of ties of the same design for events such as weddings, or for uniforms where attire is meant to be color coordinated. Web sites like these can provide products that might not be available in regular clothing stores, in varieties that are more restricted with other accessories taking up space at local businesses.
A lot of information is necessary when it comes to wearing ties. Neckties come in different lengths and can often be ordered specially for people who are very tall or very short who have difficulty finding ties that suit their body height. Some web sites have a feature that allows customers to enter their height and collar size in order to calculate the appropriate tie length. Ties should come to rest at the top of the pants (or skirt) and extend no further. In other instances, the width of the tie is important depending on the occasion (the general width of a tie is about three and a half inches, and width variation is sometimes expected to correlate with the physical size of the wearer or with the level or formality of events at which they are worn). Ties can also be tied in a variety of knots, some of which are more symmetrical and more or less thick than others. Meanwhile, more formal bow ties have their own unique standards and variations.
