The Mountain & Sackett Tie Giveaway

It’s back! Our semi bi-annual Mountain & Sackett giveaway is here again. I love Mountain & Sackett ties. They’re a family-owned business that’s been making ties right here in the U.S. of A since 1957. And the quality of their ties can’t be beat. Other companies use machines to pump out hundreds of ties an hour. The skilled craftsmen at Mountain & Sackett stitch their ties by hand, making only 5 an hour and carefully checking each piece for quality.

What’s Up For Grabs

The winner of the giveaway will get to choose any one of Mountain & Sackett’s ties (except from the Autism Speaks collection) 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 are 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 one out for yourself. Or pick out one to give dad for Father’s Day! My personal favorite is the Mott Street Mahogany tie. I wear it everywhere-even on CNN!

How to Enter

Entering is easy. Just follow these two simple steps:

1. Visit the Mountain & 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, June 12 at 10 PM EST.

What are you waiting for? Enter today!

821 George Benson June 11, 2010 at 3:28 am

What a fantastic contest! Being the monarchist that I am, I’m going to have to go for the Queen Royal Lancers Regimental Striped tie. The colours have such a distinctly regal flair to them.

822 Garrett June 11, 2010 at 4:14 am

I have a severe “purple gap” in my (admittedly cheap) tie collection. The Carlisle Purple Striped Tie would be a welcome addition.

823 Joe June 11, 2010 at 4:42 am

I don’t know if I would prefer the Queens Own Hussars Regimental or the Queen Royal Lancers. I like them both

849 James Murla June 11, 2010 at 2:35 pm

The Chrystie silver paisley tie – this tie exudes confidence. It is bold, but not flamboyant. Very classy.

850 Andrew Sheffield June 11, 2010 at 3:11 pm

I dig the Thayer Pink Striped.

851 Chris June 11, 2010 at 3:13 pm

The Ridge White Striped Tie is pretty sweet.

852 Patrick June 11, 2010 at 3:42 pm

853 Pat June 11, 2010 at 4:01 pm

Old Albanians Regimental tie is rather nice.

854 Marcus June 11, 2010 at 4:05 pm

3rd Kings Own Hussars (sky blue w/yellow & red stripes)
regimental striped section

855 Vincent June 11, 2010 at 4:06 pm

Harrison Wool Glenplaid Tie, Narrow – regular lenght.
It would look great with my suits, I don’t even own a grey tie!

856 Larry Reynolds June 11, 2010 at 4:09 pm

Harrison Wool Glenplaid, absolutely the epitome of manly and sophisticated.

857 Scott June 11, 2010 at 4:27 pm

I’d go with the Handmade Herringbone Solid tie in yellow, regular length and width.

Alternately I’d go with a plaid tie, but they don’t make one in my tartan–which is a pity, since Mountain and Sackett could rock the Murray of Atholl tartan. Sweet ties, guys!

858 Luke June 11, 2010 at 4:36 pm

I’m very fond of the Ocassionals Hockey Regimental Striped Tie.

859 Zach Cruess June 11, 2010 at 5:46 pm

3rd King’s own Hussars

860 Marc June 11, 2010 at 6:02 pm

Since I need something a tad bolder on my wardrobe, I’ll go with the Arden Orange Boardroom Tie.

861 Andy June 11, 2010 at 6:43 pm

Chrystie Blue Paisley is my pick.

862 AJ June 11, 2010 at 6:54 pm

The Old Albanians regimental looks great.

863 Shon June 11, 2010 at 6:58 pm

The Handmade Herringbone Solid Tie in blue would be a nice addition, the color is pretty sweet

864 Don June 11, 2010 at 7:04 pm

the cedar street charcoal, cedar wool herringbone tie is pretty nice for a gray tie

865 Thomas June 11, 2010 at 8:35 pm

I respect the look of the Thayer White Striped Tie, preferably narrow if they have.

866 Josh June 11, 2010 at 8:49 pm

I prefer the Kenmare Narrow Suiting Wool Solid Tie cut out of 100% flannel

867 mn June 11, 2010 at 9:04 pm

I believe I’d prefer the “Navy Handmade Dot Bow Tie”.

I seem to be missing one with that approximate color for combining with various other items, although I really do prefer shades of green, brown and gray most of the time.

And I try to avoid regular ties as much as possible, as I have for the past 15 years already. Ever since someone I knew had his caught in some machinery… bow ties don’t tend to have those problems much.

868 John S June 11, 2010 at 9:05 pm

Did you mean Sunday, June 13th?

The Chrystie Silver Paisley Tie looks great.

869 Griff June 11, 2010 at 9:15 pm

3rd Kings Own Hussars. Bold. Classic. Beautiful.

870 Collin June 11, 2010 at 9:22 pm

Thomas Narrow Suiting Wool Solid Tie, Navy. Montgomery Wool Dot Tie in grey a close second.

871 Mike June 11, 2010 at 9:43 pm

Irving Mogador Stripe, in Irving Place Green is my favorite. Great website, AoM, thank you!

872 Pete June 11, 2010 at 9:57 pm

I really like the Carlisle Gold Stripe. I could wear that with a navy suit on a typical Wednesday or with a tan suit to a weekend get together.

873 Kenny June 11, 2010 at 10:38 pm

I’d go for the Cooper Navy Solid Tie.. simple and wearable almost all the time

874 Nick Geist June 11, 2010 at 10:45 pm

I really think the Harrison Glenplaid tie is the cheese.

875 Mike June 11, 2010 at 10:55 pm

Cedar Wool Herringbone Tie –
Simple – awesome

876 Diego Zacarias June 12, 2010 at 12:21 am

Hard choices with so many excellent ties.

881 Russ June 12, 2010 at 2:49 am

Quite a lot of responses here!
I’ve always been partial to thin-striped ties, so I’ll go with the Regimental “Indian Army Ordinance” Regular size.

And by the way, as a few have mentioned, June 12th is a Saturday, not Sunday. I noticed because it’s my university graduation day!

882 Calvin June 12, 2010 at 2:55 am

The West & East Yorkshire Regimental is fantastic!

883 Michael Moore June 12, 2010 at 3:02 am

These ties are beautiful!
Barclay Blue Striped Tie is my pick.

885 Josh A. June 12, 2010 at 9:57 am

These ties look great. I like the simplicity of the Cooper Blue Solid Tie! I hope I win, but if not I’ll probably have to pick one up!!

886 Bjorn June 12, 2010 at 10:30 am

Charles Yellow striped tie

887 Jen D June 12, 2010 at 10:48 am

Indian Army Ordinance Regimental! I hope I won’t get accused of being an Imperialist…

897 Lester June 12, 2010 at 5:42 pm

A silver herringbone solid tie would be great!

898 Michael Bryan June 12, 2010 at 6:03 pm

I like the Madison Grenadine Solid Tie in Madison Avenue Wine.

899 Bryan June 12, 2010 at 6:24 pm

I’ve always been a solid or stripes kind of guy, but I recently picked up a paisly and love it, I’m looking to add pretty much any color of paisly to my tie collection.

900 Michael Hammond June 12, 2010 at 6:32 pm

The Cooper Purple Solid Tie would look great for my Fraternity functions being our adopted fraternal colors.
