Potter Premiere One Week Away!

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 premiers next Thursday in London so time to dress yourself like J.K Rowling's hero is running out. Our advice if you can't be there is to watch the red carpet action unfold on the Harry Potter Youtube Channel.

There are special events around the world so if you need one of these Harry Potter ties, then you need to order quickly! Our ties are outstanding quality and shouldn't be confused with the type found at fancy dress shops. If someone tells you they have a better tie they are talking, as Harry himself would put it, codswallop!

Britain Gets Hot Under the Collar!

Soaring temperatures across Britain have seen some office workers resort to abandoning their ties. But the heatwave doesn't mean that you have to lower your standard of dress! One option that could set you apart from the crowd is to wear a cravat. That way you don't have to button your shirt up all the way to the top.

If you really are suffering, why not try one of these hanky & cufflink sets, which must be one of the most stylish ways to accessorise if you insist on taking the open neck option.

Seconds Out for Haye v Klitschko

Send in the Clowns...

There has been a lively debate in the House of Commons today on whether wild animals should be used in circuses. However, there are no prizes for guessing what our favourite part of the circus is when you see this splendid Clowns Novelty Tie.

P.S. - What did the grape say when the elephant sat on it?

Nothing - it just let out a little whine!

Bow Tie-Wearing Doctor Goes Bananas

Check out this tantrum from David Nunn, a bow tie-wearing doctor at Guy's Hospital, during a visit by David Cameron and Nick Clegg:

According to Sky News, Nunn has a history of making his forthright views known, having previously stormed out of an operation when foreign nurses failed to understand his orders.

Greece Prays for Economic Recovery

It is no secret that Greece is a country with severe problems and hopefully some progress will be made in terms of aiding economic recovery there in the coming days.

Experts such as Roger Bootle have been warning for some that the economic situation in Greece is dire and a second refinancing package is expected ahead of a self-imposed deadline of 20th June. Although there have been strikes and mass demonstrations, there is no easy solution. If you want to show your support for the country, or if you are a proud Greek wishing to display patriotism, these Greek Flag Novelty Cufflinks are just the job. If you want to show solidarity with Greece, Europhiles may also be interested in EU Flag Novelty Cufflinks.

300 Years of Royal Ascot

This year sees the 300th anniversary of Royal Ascot. The world famous race meeting still maintains a very strict dress code and we are happy to help ensure that any of our customers fortunate enough to be attending do not look out of place.

There are plenty of options in our Wedding Zone, which should also come in handy for weddings this year and beyond. For those who are a bit more daring, we have a Silver Horse Racing Silk Tie. Those looking for inspiration could do worse than the Horse Racing Winner Novelty Tie and we also stock Horse Racing Novelty Cufflinks.

For anyone having a flutter on Royal Ascot, we wish you the best of luck. If you hit the jackpot we have some great items to spend some of your winnings on!

Shark Spotted off Cornwall

There have been reports of a shark being spotted off Cornwall. Expect more news on that in the coming days!

In the meantime, the closest we would like to get to a shark is this Sharks Novelty Tie! At £9.99 it won't take that big a bite out of your wallet!

Wimbledon Qualifiers Start

Although the main event starts next Monday, Wimbledon qualifiers take place from today until Thursday. In the past John McEnroe (1977), Boris Becker (1984) and Pat Rafter (1993) have all gained entry to Wimbledon through the qualifiers so it is worth keeping an eye on the names involved.

Of course, it is the latter stages which will really grab the public's interest and in the Mens Tournament Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer are the favourites. However, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray are also tipped to do well and there are sure to be some close matches along the way. In the Womens there is a wider pool of players with a realistic chance of winning, headed by Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova.

Are you lucky enough to be going to Wimbledon this year? If so you may wish to consider a Tennis Silk Novelty tie from Ties Planet!

Cute Cuffs for Film Buffs

Happy Birthday Prince Philip!

Today Prince Philip reaches the grand old age of 90 years. The Duke of Edinburgh is perhaps best known for putting his foot in his mouth with a series of potentially offensive remarks over the years. However, his quips have always been taken in the good spirit in which they are meant and HRH has been taken very much to the nation's heart. With the Royal Wedding still proving to be a talking point and the Diamond Jubilee on the horizon, it is a busy time to be royalty. These Gold Crown Novelty Cufflinks are just the job for any engagements you have coming up!
