Last May we did a tie giveaway with the Mountain and Sackett tie company, which has been making handmade neckware right here in America since 1957. The giveaway was a big hit with readers, so we decided to bring it back again. And with the holidays coming up, we wanted to help you look sharp for the seasonal parties you’ll be attending.

What’s Up For Grabs

The winner of the giveaway will get to choose any one of Mountain and Sackett’s ties as their prize. Need a narrow tie in your collection? How about a solid wool tie? And of course don’t forget the ties that Mountain and Sackett is famous for-their regimentals. Mountain and Sackett ‘s regimental ties are the world’s only 100% handmade ties. No machine touches these beauties. Cruise through Mountain and Sackett’s collection and pick the one you’d like to be wearing around your neck when you kiss your gal under the mistletoe.

How to Enter

Entering is easy. Just follow these two simple steps:

1. Visit the Mountain and Sackett website and pick out the style and color you would like for your tie if you’re lucky enough to be selected as the winner.

2. Share your selection with us in the comments section. You don’t have to post the link-just a description. (Posting the link may cause your comment to be filtered as spam).

Everyone who enters the contest will be emailed a code for a 20% discount on Mountain and Sackett ties at the conclusion of the contest.

A winner will be drawn randomly from the entries. The deadline for entry into the contest is Sunday, November 22 at 11PM EST.

What are you waiting for? Enter today!

The Old Albanians Regimental Striped Tie looks perfect!

1102 Stevep November 20, 2009 at 6:09 pm

I like the simplicity and color of the RGB regimental.

Autism Speaks All Over Neat Tie – Large

1104 Edward Groh November 20, 2009 at 6:57 pm

The Stewart Tartan is a staple in anyone’s closet. It looks sharp with a blue blazer or camel hair sports coat. It can be dressy or casual and you can even get away with it worn with your old Harris Tweed sports coat and a pair of jeans. With all of the awful looking novelty ties you see everyday its a relief to see a gentleman in a tie that has some heritage.

1105 Matt Wolfgang November 20, 2009 at 7:21 pm

The Regimental in the “Royal Marines” would be awesome to go with my blazer!

Thank you for offering this!

1106 Kevin P November 20, 2009 at 7:47 pm

Stewart Tartan looks like a thing of beauty. 57″

1107 Chris Marinos November 20, 2009 at 8:48 pm

I’ll go with the Old Albanians

1108 Sam R November 20, 2009 at 9:00 pm

I really dig the Cambridge Scotch School Regimental Tie.

1109 brett November 20, 2009 at 9:13 pm

The Old Albanians, a handmade regimental tie, for 70 bucks is a keeper for sure. and the colors of this one are great

1110 Todd G November 20, 2009 at 10:05 pm

Regimental tie: indian army ordinance.

1118 Mike November 21, 2009 at 8:26 am

After looking at all of the Regimental ties, I have to agree with Dennis. The Indian Army Ordinance is my favorite.

1119 E.E. November 21, 2009 at 8:31 am

I’d have to go with the Handmade Printed Paisley Tie in Rust (regular length).

1120 Keenan November 21, 2009 at 8:32 am

I love the Kerr Wool Tartan Tie! But I think this one wins: Handmade 100% Cashmere Plaid Tie

1121 Jason Forbes November 21, 2009 at 9:13 am

Great site. I would go with Old Albanians.

1122 Siddharth Suri November 21, 2009 at 9:16 am

1123 Randy November 21, 2009 at 9:28 am

As many before, the Old Albanians Regimental Stripe would fit perfectly into my tie rack!

1124 Andrew Woo November 21, 2009 at 9:40 am

1125 Roy November 21, 2009 at 9:58 am

Wool knit navy. My first entry selection now shows “out of stock,” so this is a substitute. Thank you very much for running this promotion.

1126 Chris November 21, 2009 at 11:09 am

I’d take the old albanian or somerset light infantry

1127 Nik November 21, 2009 at 11:09 am

I would most enjoy the Indian Army Ordinance regimental tie.

It narrowly edged out Occasionals Hockey, RGB, NWR, and East & West Yorkshire.

Also, I have to say, $70 is a surprisingly reasonable price for a 100% handmade tie. I might have to buy one of these at some point anyway. But here’s to hoping I don’t have to! :)

1128 Viking November 21, 2009 at 11:38 am

I like how the Queen Royal Lancers Regimental tie commands a room. This is the tie I would want. I took advantage of the giveaway in May. Though I didn’t win I bought the Old Albanians Regimental tie. What a beautiful and well-made tie. This is quality craftsmanship in fabric.

1129 Frank Giaime November 21, 2009 at 11:45 am
