Keep it Clean is a company that is run differently, it is a company that sells ties and bow ties and has two purposes: to keep you looking clean and to keep the ocean clean. Keep it Clean is on a mission to help the world, and believe that it can help people look good in doing it. As more and more people become conscious about their footprint on earth, companies like Keep It Clean are building a loyal and eco-conscious audience.
Donating $1 For Every Tie Purchase
Right now their main focus is donating to The Ocean Cleanup, they are an organization that Keep It Clean stands by completely. With every purchase of a tie or bow tie, $1 is donated to theoceancleanup.com to aid them in cleaning our oceans. Think of this as the TOMS of Ties! Cleaning up the oceans isn’t all they want to achieve as a company, they also want to expand and help people on land all the while making their customers look and feel better as a result of their purchases.
I have always been a fan of brands that have a higher purpose and these guys are doing a lot of things right. I’m not just talking about the obvious environmental things, I’m talking about their products too!
Keep It Clean deliberately remains very simple with a clear message. Ties, bow ties and clean the ocean. I have been personally impressed with their product range, it looks very stylish but is sold at an amazing low price point. Most of its products fall within the $8-$12 range and exude a style factor far above their price.
At MenStyleFashion we are a fan of the bow tie, we can’t see enough of it and especially around the summer months. A summer bow tie a really like from the current collection is the Steel Blue / Light Blue on Black Pre-Tied Woven Dotted Paisley Bow Tie. The paisley detail is really nice and the colour scheme works really well.
Then there is always the bow tie that can go with a suit or tux and nothing is better than the black bow tie, get your own James Bond impersonation.
I am a bit of an authority when it comes to neck ties, as you can see in a recent article which was done in association with Lynx. Ever since I can remember I’ve been a fan of ties, I guess it could go back to my relationship with my grandfather who always seemed to ‘suit up’ and wear his 40’s style ties. As you may be able to guess that my tie style closely resembles the style from that time! I like my ties slim, but not skinny and generally bold in colour. This is what I like in Keep It Clean’s collection as it keeps its ties narrow in width and host a range of patterns from solid colours to ones of a more patriotic nature!
Its solid navy blue tie and the cool coral tie are the ones that stood out for me. I don’t usually enjoy ‘loud’ patterns on a tie, but I did feel that the majority of their ties didn’t scream out as ‘lary’ and showed a more confident look. I must admit I could almost wear any of its collection of neck ties which speaks volumes.
A tie lover myself I love it when companies sell a good product and also have a higher purpose. But combine this with low prices and for me Keep It Clean ticks all of these boxes.
