More About Windsor Neckwear
What began in 2008 as a common passion for men's neckwear has become a rapidly growing business venture between Michael McPherson Jr. and Mace Neal III. The concept for Windsor Neckwear was first thought of on one of many shopping voyages between Michael and Mace. One day while shopping for a new tie in a popular men's store the duo walked away disappointed in the lack of variety and similarity in a sea of what looked like repetitive ties! After a brief discussion about the lack luster experience Mike said "we should start our own necktie line" and Mace simply responded "yeah we should". From that day forward the duo never looked back. Windsor Neckwear began with a total $80.00 investment between Mike and Mace who purchased fabric and a quick sew necktie pattern. Initially they began making hand made ties, ascots, and pocket squares.
The plan was to always have their line manufactured on a larger scale so they spent the first year and a half learning the manufacturing business and building capital to develop their first line. In late 2009 after garnering the support of a manufacturing facility they made their first line of four designs. There were several issues with their first experience but they managed to sell out of all four designs in three weeks! From that point Windsor Neckwear has expanded to offering a vast array of beautiful neckties each unique in their own way.
To not fall into the pit of "designers block" and creating a basic collection, Windsor Neckwear made it their practice to produce limited quantities per design. The most they will produce of any one tie in a specific color is 50 pieces, they do this to constantly introduce new products, keep their items exclusive and to always keep the creative juices flowing. This has worked well for Windsor Neckwear and because of this they always tell their customers "if you see it and like it then get it, because it won't be available long".
