Trunk Giveaway: Jack Franklin Ties

Every man should have a few good ties in his wardrobe. The problem is, it’s hard to find a quality, stylish tie that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Enter Jack Franklin. Jack Franklin produces hand sewn ties from the finest silk on the market. I like my ties with a bit of heft and texture. Jack Franklin ties have both of these qualities thanks to the wool interlining in all their ties and fabrics woven by Italian weavers. I love how these ties feel. Most of their ties sell for about $30.

One of the things I like about Jack Franklin ties are their designs. They have a nice mix of modern and retro-inspired looks. The ties have fun names like 70s School Teacher, Blues Brothers, Bryant Gumble, and Tetris. I own The Connery, Used Car Salesman, and Gordon Gecko. Funny man Stephen Colbert is a fan of the Admiral.

Nate October 26, 2011 at 5:06 pm

I like my ties like I like my Oreos. Double Stuffed is the style for me!

Nathanael October 26, 2011 at 5:11 pm

Stu Scott. I wonder who will win this contest… I have a feeling it will end up being a tie! Ha!

Josh October 26, 2011 at 5:34 pm

I must say I am more of a “Southern Gent”. Gitalong Now.

bas October 26, 2011 at 6:09 pm


This tie ties right into my job. My wife and I own a plant nursery.
I will be wearing this tie when I take my children to cotillion next time.

Thanks for this nice offer.

Dave October 26, 2011 at 7:19 pm

The Connery speaks to me (with a wicked-cool accent).

Jordan October 26, 2011 at 7:45 pm

So many great ties to choose from! I will be splurging….

I gotta say, though, The Pub is the one that really caught my eye.

Derek October 26, 2011 at 8:12 pm

The Slimcut Black Plaid!

Gerard Quinn October 26, 2011 at 8:48 pm

The Seacrest (slim cut). It’s difficult to find a good basic black tie, but it’s handy to wear with waistcoats!

Adam Morris October 26, 2011 at 9:24 pm

I have been looking for a good patterned red tie for a while now and I just found it. I love the Chinese Checkerboard in Red. It is amazing as are most of the ties I saw. There is just something deeply manly in a good red tie. It sets off nearly any suit in nearly any colour. It is a powerful focal point and transforms simple attire into dapper and dynamic!

Cam October 26, 2011 at 9:26 pm

Lucky Charm- it’s great, it’s green, the stripes are just right, and it could make pretty much any outfit fantastic

Conrad October 26, 2011 at 10:29 pm

This is tough, so many great ties! I think ill have to go with Deep Blue, I’d splurge on the other ties after i get the basics down :)

Erich McCrumb October 26, 2011 at 11:33 pm

Rolls Royce

Brandon October 26, 2011 at 11:58 pm

Love the tie, but the name makes me feel sleazy. Used Car Salesman is my tie pick.

Jim Beidle October 27, 2011 at 12:09 am

I like the Patriot. It’s a handsome tie that not only represents the colors of the United States, it is the colors of Volunteers of America, the company for which I work. I can see pairing this tie with an appropriate shirt for the next community engagement meeting.

Adam Sell October 27, 2011 at 7:30 am

Paul Van De Ven October 27, 2011 at 8:45 am

Captian Jack!!

gustav October 27, 2011 at 9:24 am

I would get the slim cut black plaid tie. It has a classic but modern design and cut.

Olav October 27, 2011 at 10:00 am

“Espresso” por favor =)

Brittan October 27, 2011 at 10:18 am

Definitely the White House tie. I love that it would go with almost any suit!

Phaelin October 27, 2011 at 10:21 am

The Gordon Gekko – because you cannot pass up a tie with a name like that.

Adam October 27, 2011 at 10:53 am

Country Club – I could use a nice plaid.

Don October 27, 2011 at 11:43 am

Nucleus – A good tie for a science teacher

Cody October 27, 2011 at 1:44 pm

Dark Night

Tom Brunton October 27, 2011 at 3:27 pm


How beautifully appropriate that my Alma Mater is ACU… The mascot? Wildcats.


James Tollison October 27, 2011 at 4:53 pm

Lucy In The Sky–gotta love those diamonds! It’s a tie that can go most anywhere.

Jose Gurule, Jr. October 27, 2011 at 5:36 pm

Blackdiamond!… enough said.

Todd MacGrath October 27, 2011 at 6:18 pm


Kyle October 27, 2011 at 6:27 pm

Brandon October 27, 2011 at 6:42 pm

Seth October 27, 2011 at 8:06 pm

Robert D. Steele October 27, 2011 at 10:34 pm

The Royal Charcoal, simply beautiful. I have about 10 different combinations that could go with. Plus, it’s Royal!


Luke October 27, 2011 at 11:28 pm

Red Sea

Nate October 28, 2011 at 7:46 am

Blue Man!

Anton October 28, 2011 at 7:51 am

Splendid offer! I would most definitely go for the Dartmouth (slim cut) model.

Aric October 28, 2011 at 8:58 am

The Patriot

Brenden Valks October 28, 2011 at 10:06 am

The Southern Gent

Andrew October 28, 2011 at 10:29 am

It’s gonna be Rolls Royce for me. Since I’ll never have one with wheels :(

Conrad October 28, 2011 at 11:13 am

I like the orange freckle. there must me another conrad

William LaRue October 28, 2011 at 11:14 am

The Southern Gent, I do declare

Braden Ferrin October 28, 2011 at 11:37 am

Cyclops looks the best with its subtle pattern, great color.

Matt G October 28, 2011 at 1:53 pm

International Tie of Mystery. My collection lacks a purple tie, I like paisley, and I love the name.

Travis October 28, 2011 at 1:57 pm

Royal Charcoal – This tie would just about go with all my suits and it looks amazing.

Keith Williams October 28, 2011 at 2:31 pm

The Motown Love is awesome. The simple Orange stripes are not overpowering and look just fantastic.
