Tie Society: Meet the Netflix of Ties

Tie Society, like all great ideas, was first realized at a bar between friends. Once again another benefit of beer and football. Thank you very much. The Netflix-like men’s accessory service was hatched between two friends fresh out of college in D.C., who ended up swapping ties to avoid dropping coin on new ones. Zach Gittens and Otis Collins, the founders, understood they could wear the same suits every week, but what they received compliments on were their ties. First they swapped their own collections and then started expanding with their group of friends. Tie Society was born when they decided to bring their idea to the rest of us.

The best part about this service is you can spend as little as $10 month on one tie. But we recommend the $20 monthly service for three ties at time. You can keep the accessories as long as you want, swap them as often as you want and best of all – no late fees. What’s the catch? As far as we can see at The Manual there isn’t one. And according to Jake Kuczeruk, the Chief Marketing Officer at Tie Society it’s all about rewarding the customer. The curated collection ranges from smaller designers like Mosaic to larger brand names like J. Crew and Hermes.

“There’s nothing on the site that we wouldn’t use personally. Every guy some time in his life has to wear ties,” said Kuczeruk.

Since inception in November 2011, Tie Society has grown to expand its service outside of the U.S. to Japan. They now offer bow ties, cuff links, tie bars and pocket squares. If you’re looking for a unique Father’s Day gift for later this month Tie Society will be offering “Dad Packs” that will include two ties, a pocket square, tie bar and cuff links set. You can rent one for $50 to get him started or buy one for $100. They will also include a handwritten messages and some of their TS Collar stays.

How it Works:
  • Sign up for an online closet at www.tiesociety.com
  • Select Membership Plan. We recommend the $20-a-month subscription for three items. However there are plans for $10 for one item and up to $50 for 10 items.
  • Items arrive 1-3 days after you order them and they come with return packaging and postage.
  • Exchange and return as much as you like.

The best men's clothing will always be full of divisive ideas. As we push the boundaries of what is acceptable, stylish, or masculine, certain items in your closet or drawer will cause backlash for some and praise from others. However, one item will transcend this argument (while simultaneously being the most hotly debated part of it) mostly because it sparks something nothing else in men's fashion does: nostalgic conversation. T-shirts may always walk the line between beloved casual and home wear, but vintage t-shirts find a way to transport us back to a time when the world felt simpler.

NFL’s Kirk Cousins reveals his secrets for the ideal boating day on the lake
The perfect boat and the perfect hat for the NFL QB
Kirk Cousins driving a boat

Nothing beats a day on the lake. Or the ocean. Or even the pool. But not every day on the lake is the same, and some of those moments on the water call for more than just a summer set or a great summer look. Being by the water is nothing compared to being on the water, feeling the waves and basking in the sun where the closest person is sitting on dry land.
That's where Manitou comes in, with its mission to get people off the sand and spend their time getting wet. And no one is better to help Manitou get people out on Lake Michigan better than hometown hero Kirk Cousins, who teamed up with the brand to bring a new twist on the pontoon boat.
We had the opportunity to sit down with the NFL quarterback to ask him questions about the boats, his day on the lake, and even a little football. When he's not leading a team with his arm, he's spending time with his family on the water, and he gave us a peek into his ideal day on the lake, and one of the items he always wears.

Why Manitou?

This highly-rated Under Armour unisex athletic backpack is $14 off for Prime Day
Under Armour Hustle 5 unisex backpack Prime Day deal

Backpacks can be hit or miss. Some of them are super durable, but whether or not they'll fit all the gear you need is up in the air. The best backpacks are pricier, which makes sense. You tend to get what you pay for. If you're in the market for a solid backpack, Under Armour is offering an excellent discount on the Unisex Hustle 5.0 Backpack for Prime Day this year. Usually $55, you can get the pack for $41, saving you $14, and there are a ton of color options available. You should know, however, that this is a limited-time deal, and we have no idea how long it will stick around. We recommend shopping now if you're interested so you don't miss out.

 
Here's why you should consider getting the Under Armour Hustle 5.0 Backpack now
Prime Day officially starts July 16 and runs through July 17, so understandably, most people are probably waiting until the official event to do their shopping. If that's you, we get it. However, in recent years, the deals available on Prime Day haven't been much better than the early stuff floating around. Also, a variety of retailers are now involved, so it often pays to look outside of Amazon for deals. In this case, the Under Armour Hustle is available as part of a limited-time deal, and there's no countdown, so we don't know when it will end. It could be gone before you know it or even sell out.
