BBC Right To Suspend Ross?

We have all seen the mass coverage of the fall-out from Jonathan Ross and Russell Brand's prank calls to Fawlty Towers actor Andrew Sachs' answerphone last week. The BBC ultimately decided to suspend Ross for 12 weeks without pay for his role in the calls, which were aired on Brand's BBC Radio 2 show.

As one of Britain's most famous tie wearer's we are interested to see if you think Ross has been treated harshly. Perhaps you think the punishment is too lenient and the furore is all a storm in a teacup? Do you think the chat show host should have been sacked?

Please give your opinion by voting on our poll and discussing the scandal in the comments box below...

Fashion Tips from Ken Dodd!

Yes, veteran comedian Ken Dodd has recently aired his views on ties, claiming, “I’ve got hundreds of ties and even wear one going to bed. They’re the last stranglehold of men’s fashion sense."

Dodd just can't understand politicians over 40 years of age not wearing ties either. “It’s like they are trying to be 21 again.” A sentiment we share very much.

And Ken's final fashion tip... “Ties and training shoes don’t go either – you have to walk around with your shirt hanging out.” This we're not in total agreement with as we have seen many a cool dude sporting trainers and skinny tie, but it just great to see someone who cares about ties! Nice one Ken!

Know someone who is clinging onto their youth by not wearing a tie to work? Let him know it is time to see the light by buying him a tie for Christmas from!

X-Factor - 'Piano Tie Tony' Is Back

X-Factor fanatics may remember 2005 auditionee, Anthony Little. Name doesn't ring a bell? Well, he was more famously known as 'Piano Tie Tony' due to his choice of neckwear for the ITV show audition.

'Piano Tie Tony' wore a rather distinctive white jacket and piano tie on the show in 2005. This didn't help him get through to the next round though, resulting in an argument between Anthony and judge Simon Cowell. Little told the music mogul, “(he) had made the wrong decision and that he should change his mind”, to no avail.

Imagine Cowell's shock when Anthony walked through the X-Factor audition doors again this year... again wearing the piano tie! Little did take the tie off before he performed this time round, but again did not make it past the first stage.

You can read the full story here.

Now that 'Piano Tie Tony' has become simply 'Tony', if you like his tie, then maybe you could offer to buy it from him.

Alternatively, we have ties very much like the one he wore... Ties Planet Tie like 'Piano Tie Tony's'

Brown and Mowbray are Best Dressed Premier League New Boys

We have taken a keen interest in the managers new to the English Premier League over the first couple of weeks of the new season.

Paul Ince, Luiz Felipe Scolari, Tony Pulis, Phil Brown and Tony Mowbray are all managing in England's top flight for the first time, and whilst their respective club's fans are all eager to find out how they fare in the big league, we have been monitoring how they have fared in the fashion stakes.

Here is how they have ranked over the first two games of the new campaign:

Luiz Felipe Scolari 1/10 - 'Big Phil' gets one point for a well honed moustache, but his attire has not really been up to scratch so far. Scolari has worn full tracksuit in the baking sun of Chelsea's first two games, a look he looks likely to adopt all season-long. We certainly don't expect to see him in suit and tie anytime soon.

Paul Ince 7/10 - The new Blackburn Rovers boss would be on 10/10 had he chosen not to wear a tie for his side's second outing of the season at home to Hull City. He wore smart suit and tie for Rovers' opening day win at Goodison Park, but opted to go without the tie for the draw with Hull City last weekend. Moral of the story? The tie brought you luck Paul.

Phil Brown 9/10 - Hull City's surprisingly good start to the season has coincided with Brown looking rather dapper in both their opening encounters. Sam Allardyce's former assistant has worn a nice orange and black club tie for the matches against Fulham and Blackburn.

Tony Pulis -1/10 - We never expected Pulis to be there in the style-stakes this season, but for him to wear a baseball cap for his side's games has left him with a minus score!

Tony Mowbray 9/10 - Mowbray's start to the season has been much smarter than his side's. West Bromwich Albion may have kicked off the campaign with two losses, but their boss has looked sharp during both games. Mowbray has worn a nice traditional navy blue and white striped tie on both occasions.

Try and find a tie like your favourite Premier League boss at!

Premier League Bosses to Show Respect by Wearing Tie?

Respect has been the talk of the football world this week as the Premier League prepares for the take-off of the 2008-09 season. A new Premier League Initiative, dubbed "Get on with the Game" has been agreed between the twenty clubs, focusing on a greater need for more respect between players, referees, managers and fans.

The key feature of the initiative is the plan for less abuse of referees by players, and for any objections to go through the captain.

At Ties Planet we would like to see managers show their respect for the game by wearing their tie for every game. OK, we have a vested interest, but it can only help can't it?

It will be of interest to see how many managers do wear their tie for the first round of fixtures this weekend. We'd love to see 15 of the 20 managers sporting their club's colours around their neck. We shall see.

Beckham In Tie Again

David Beckham has been talking to Sky Sports this week and chose to carry on his tie wearing ways for the interview (which can be viewed here).

The LA Galaxy star spoke about all things football including Real Madrid, Fabio Capello, Manchester United and even gave his view on the summer's hot topic, Cristiano Ronaldo's proposed move to Spain.

Beckham sported a thin black tie to complement his white shirt and v-neck jumper. We thought he looked rather smart.

Lagerbäck Tops Euro 2008 Tie Competition

Euro 2008 is now well underway, each team having played their first game of the tournament. Spain, Portugal and Holland have all impressed in the early exchanges, but as ever of course we have been more interested in the neckwear on show at the tournament.
We are pleased to see that the majority of head coaches have chosen to wear ties for their respective team's opening games. Of particular interest was Sweden boss, Lars Lagerback's decision to wear a skinny tie for his sides 2-0 victory over reigning champions, Greece.

The trend of the last couple of season's has been for young fashionistas to wear thin 4-5cm width ties. Lagerback though has shown that the skinny tie is not just the accessory of choice for the hip, young things, but for shall we say more mature gentlemen too?

Lagerback, Sweden's manager since 2000, is fast approaching his 60th birthday, but still knows how to look pretty damn cool!

Below we rate each manager's tie of choice for their nation's first Euro 2008 game:

Group A

Karel Brückner (Czech Republic) - 7/10 - The Czech boss chose to wear a plain ribbed grey tie. Simple, effective and nothing too extravagant. Pretty much like his side.

Luiz Felipe Scolari (Portugal) - 0/10 - Scolari spoilt a fine display by his men, by choosing to wear a rather shabby looking tracksuit instead of wearing his suit and tie.

Jakob Kuhn (Switzerland) - 8/10 - Kuhn wore his country's colours, with a red and white striped tie. A classic blade width, classic design and classic colours.

Fatih Terim (Turkey) - 0/10 - Another tracksuit manager. Poor decision. Perhaps he'll put his lucky tie on for their second game?

Group B

Josef Hickersberger (Austria) -8/10 - A striking silk tie worn by the Austrian boss. A light blue and dark blue squared design.

Slaven Bilic (Croatia) - 8/10 - A plain darkish red tie worn by Bilic. A plain bold colour goes a long way.

Joachim Löw (Germany) -1/10 - No tie again! Tut tut, but one mark given as at least he wore a collared shirt, that a tie could easily be popped on.

Leo Beenhakker (Poland) - 9/10 - A plain bold red tie. Very simple, but a beautiful tie knotted to perfection by the experienced boss.

Group C

Raymond Domenech (France) - 7/10 - A nice tie, but we're not sure Domenech quite carried it off. The narrow navy tie with French cockerel will probably suit Thierry Henry better!

Roberto Donadoni (Italy) - 9/10 - A classy black tie worn by Donadoni. Did we expect any less from an Italian?

Marco Van Basten (Netherlands) - 0/10 - A shame that the Dutch legend didn't wear a tie as he has been seen lately in a very nice bright orange tie.

Victor Piţurcă (Romania) - 0/10 - We're unlikely to see Victor in a tie for his side's matches any time soon.

Group D

Otto Rehhagel (Greece) - 0/10 - We think Otto would suit a nice wide tie, but he chose to wear a polo shirt. Shame.

Guus Hiddink (Russia) - 8/10 - A very nice black and white striped tie worn by the Dutchman.

Luis Aragonés (Spain) - 0/10 - Aragones didn't wear a tie, but as he wore a coat for the summer tournament, we're not sure anyone wants to be looking to the Spain boss for fashion tips anyway.

Lars Lagerbäck (Sweden) - 10/10 - What a decision by the Swede. Wore a tartan pattern skinny tie. Totally unexpected, but Lars did look the part in the fashionable tie.

Be sure to check out the links to ties we stock like the ones worn by the coaches!
We are getting a tartan skinny tie, like Lagerback's in stock in the next couple of weeks so be sure to keep checking out our Skinny Ties section!

Short Suits Hit The Streets

BBC reporter Brian Milligan tries out the new 'short suit' which is designed for summer office wear in this video...

The suit which incorporates shorts rather than long trousers has already met much criticism. The main gripe being that many mens' legs are better not seen in the office.

The same could be said, in our unbiased opinion, of the male neck. Open-necked shirts reveal that part of the body that many people just don't want to see!

There is only one solution to these problems, wear long trousers and wear a tie. Some fashions never lose their class.

Beckham Birthday Marred by Shocking Tie & Hanky Mismatch

We were interested to see David Beckham step out for his 33rd birthday celebrations this week.

The Daily Mail was most interested by he and wife Victoria's monochrome outfits. Interesting, granted... but what intrigued us more was the LA Galaxy star's decision to wear tie and pocket hanky. Nothing too daring about that you may think... but Beckham's hanky and tie did not match. Shock. Horror.

So, if you're reading David, if you couldn't find a matching set, you might want to take a look at our Tie, Hanky & Cufflinks Sets. Priced at £11.99, they are well in your price range.

Boris Johnson is London Mayor

Boris Johnson has been officially announced as new London Mayor, beating off competition from leading contender Ken Livingstone.

We said we'd be keeping an eye out for the ties they chose to wear on May 1st... and we did.

Johnson chose to wear a plain purple tie, the fashionable colour of the moment. Livingstone was being more coy though by wearing a long coat covering his suit and tie. So for us Boris Johnson won that battle on voting day!

On May 2nd (Result Day) though, we did get to see ties from both Ken and Boris. Whilst Conservative, Johnson stuck with a purple tie, Livingstone went for a nice bright yellow tie. If we'd seen that on Livingstone on May 1st, we'd have called it a draw!

Want a tie like Boris Johnson's? We have a few plain purple ties in stock. Take your pick...

Candidates Aim To Tie Up London Mayor Role

Ken Livingstone, Boris Johnson and Brian Paddick were all in the last chance saloon today in their push for votes to be elected Mayor of London.

LONDON (Reuters) - Boris Johnson and Ken Livingstone traded personal attacks on Wednesday as they made a final push for votes on the last day of campaigning in the London mayoral race.

Full story can be read here...

in the meantime we are readying ourselves to see what ties the candidates wear on election day tomorrow. Perhaps, in what is said to be a 'neck-and-neck' battle between Johnson and Livingstone, it could come down to who wears the nicest tie on May 1st!

Fabregas Shows Style Off The Pitch Too

This year's PFA Players Player of the Year, Cristiano Ronaldo, was not present to receive his award at Sunday's star-studded ceremony at London's Grosvenor House Hotel, due to Champions League commitments. Fellow winner Cesc Fabregas was there though.

The Arsenal playmaker earned himself the PFA Young Player of the Year award for his performances throughout the 2007-08 Premier League campaign. The honour will have pleased Fabregas, no doubt, but what pleased us more was his decision to wear a tie rather than bow tie for the event.

The overwhelming majority of guests still choose to wear a bow tie for the black tie dinner, but young Spaniard Fabregas, showed he is a master of style off the field as well as on it by sporting a sharp black tie.

He went against the current trend of skinny ties and opted for a nice regular width tie.

A black silk tie like Fabregas' can be found here at

Did you know...

World Champion chess player Garry Kasparov always wore shirt and tie to play his matches?

Kasparov, who was champion from 1985 to 2000, had this to say:

"I think that it is important to play in suit and tie."

We have plenty of smart ties that might suit Kasparov, but unfortunately we don't stock a chess tie in our novelty ties section.

Perhaps he might like this tie, cufflinks and hanky set... he could just about have a game of chess on this one!

Women choosing to wear ties

It is official. Gone are the days when neckties were the monopoly of office-working males. Not only do fashionista males now choose to wear ties for everyday use and night on the town, women are getting in on the act too.

Yes, an increasingly popular trend is women wearing ties. Celebrities like Gwen Stefani (pictured) and Avril Lavigne are spearheading the look.

The most popular look with women is to wear a skinny tie with a fitted shirt/blouse. Though girls the world over are finding ties in various widths and patterns to finish off their outfits.

And let's face it, judging by some of the frankly disgusting ties we have seen on men over the years, it is probably about time ladies got to work in choosing stylish designs to wear.

Noriko Wada at has the right idea!

Need a tie for the girl in your life? We recommend our skinny ties section as a good place to start...

In menswear, skinny ties are in style

12:53 AM EST, February 25, 2008

Here's the big headline for style-conscious men in 2008: Buy a skinnier tie.

In the world of men's fashion, the shrinking of the tie from a 33/4-inch width to around 31/4 inches counts as monumental news.

That would never do in women's fashion, where changes can be measured in volumes -- say, from sleek to swinging -- in the course of a season or two.

Menswear moves at a much slower pace. Five years is the norm; a fast-track shift could happen in three.

Ari Hoffman, chief executive of Gant, says it's become an industry joke that a seemingly small detail such as tie width or lapel style could be considered a drastic shift; but it's also true.

The attention to narrower ties and slimmer lapels comes as the industry continues to embrace dressier looks, Hoffman says.

Wear a tie like Alistair Darling

OK, so Chancellor Alistair Darling is unlikely to become a style icon anytime soon, but we did like his tie today.

Darling was speaking about plans to nationalise Northern Rock. Plans that have received much criticism from opposition MPs.

A Nice Bad Tie Joke

A guy goes into a restaurant/lounge wearing a shirt open at the collar and is met by a bouncer who tells him he must wear a necktie to gain admission.

So the guy goes out to his car and he looks around for a necktie and discovers that he just doesn't have one. He sees a set of jumper cables in his trunk. In desperation he ties these around his neck, manages to fashion a fairly acceptable looking knot and lets the ends dangle free.

He goes back to the restaurant and the bouncer carefully looks him over for a few minutes and then says:

"Well, OK, I guess you can come in - just don't start anything."

Avoid this situation by purchasing a tie for just £2.99 from:

Liam Gallagher Ties Knot

Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher married Nicole Appleton in secret this week. On Valentine's Day in fact. Awwwww.

Only a select few guests were there, and the secrecy of it all means there are no pictures. We admit it is highly unlikely that Liam wore a tie for his big day, but if Liam had looked closely at our website, then maybe he would have found one he liked.

We have come up with two ideas of our own...

1. A Plain Blue Silk Tie (the colour of Gallagher's beloved Manchester City)

The History of the Tie - Part One

We've decided it was about time you necktie fanatics were educated about the tie and the history of it. It's quite clear they are a great piece of attire, but in our series of blog entries we hope to teach you a bit of something about the history of the humble tie.

In part one we tell you about the necktie's beginnings...

From Wikipedia:
The necktie can be traced back to the time of the Thirty Year War (1618-1648) when Croatian mercenaries in French service, wearing their traditional small, knotted neckerchiefs, aroused the interest of the Parisians.[1] The new article of clothing started a fashion craze in Europe where both men and women wore pieces of fabric around their necks. In the late seventeenth century, the men wore lace cravats that took a large amount of time and effort to arrange. These cravats were often tied in place by cravat strings, arranged neatly and tied in a bow.

And from
The French fashion of the early 1600’s was a white lace ruff worn around the neck. This stiff, uncomfortable style extended even to French soldiers. Come the Thirty Years War, these ruffled Frenchies found themselves fighting alongside a group of fierce Croatian horsemen for hire.

One can imagine the French soldiers scratchy necked jealousy at looking over and finding that these tough Croats wore no ruffles but simply a cloth tied neatly around their necks. It wasn’t just the soldiers who noticed . The military higher ups were equally taken with it and within a decade the sun king himself, Louis XIV, was seen “a la Croat”. So it was that the cravat, a bastardization of the French word for Croatians, was born. It didn’t hurt the cravat’s popularity that France was strapped for cash during the war. While a ruff used many meters of lace and was very expensive, a hip cravat could be had for a pittance. Everyone from Charles II of England to Napoleon tied one on.

FA Cup 5th Round Ties This Weekend

It is FA Cup Fifth Round this weekend. There will be plenty of thrills, spills, upsets and demolitions. But one thing is for sure, the managers will all see fit to wear their ties for the occasion.

All kinds of colours and styles will be on show, but the one we always like is the plain burgundy red tie worn by Arsene Wenger whenever his stylish Arsenal side are on show.

We can't offer you the chance to be Arsenal manager unfortunately, but we can offer you a tie like Arsene's either in silk or polyester...

Dennis Wises Up

New Newcastle United Executive Director, Dennis Wise, not only changed roles this week, he seemingly also changed stylist.

Throughout his time as Leeds United football manager, Wise was seen on the touchline wearing suit, shirt, jumper, but no tie. On just day one of his new Premier League role, the former Chelsea midfield man chose to don a plain black silk tie.

Arguments will rage over whether Wise was right to leave Leeds for Newcastle. What we are sure of though is Dennis' decision to give the role the respect of the tie is the correct one.

Burley ties up Scotland job

George Burley was today unveiled as Scotland manager after weeks of speculation surrounding the post. The decision to appoint Burley is an interesting one by the SFA. Of more interest to us though was Burley's choice of neckwear for his first day in charge of the national team.

Prime minister Gordon Brown and England footballing hero David Beckham met yesterday at The David Beckham Academy in London. Of course the real story here is that both men wore ties, but there was other business at hand also.

Richard Madeley Sees Error Of His Ways

Richard Madeley, daytime television presenter and long-time icon of cool-dad syndrome appears to have seen the error of his ways. Richard was spotted looking rather smart tonight, hosting Richard and Judy on Channel 4.

Madeley wore a luxury navy blue tie, nicely complementing his black suit.

A tie similar to the one worn by Madeley can be seen here.
