Tie Cargo has four different membership levels, and you can start your subscription for only $1.99! After that it's $10 per month, but I think that's a great price for brand-name ties. Here's more information on the different price points:
- Tie Starter - One tie each month for $1.99 for your first tie, then $10 each month after
- Tie Three-Pack - Three ties each month for $9.99, then $25 each month after
- Tie Starter - 12-month subscription for $99.95 per year
- Tie Three-Pack - 12-months of three ties a month for $199.95 per year
Shipping is included in all of the charges. They definitely ship to the U.S., and when I went to set up an account to see if there were any shipping restrictions there was a long drop-down menu of countries to choose from, so I would guess that means they ship almost anywhere.
The ties are randomly selected each month, and the tie I got was the Giorgio Armani Cravatte. The website states that this will be shipping on March 15, so if you want to receive this tie you still have a short amount of time to do so! Remember, your first tie only costs $1.99!
When I agreed to review Tie Cargo it was with Pete in mind, as he obviously has more occasions to wear a tie than I do. He really loved this design and was happy to receive an Armani tie, since he normally doesn't buy from labels like that. The design is perfect for work or special occasions and the craftsmanship is very nice.
The tie is a slate gray with small white dots, as you can see above. I couldn't find it on the Armani website so I believe it is an older design, but that being said it's still brand new and Armani ties generally run around $275.
Bottom Line: I'm very impressed with Tie Cargo and so is Pete! He really liked this tie and will definitely put it to good use. I think this is a great, affordable subscription, especially since most men I know don't enjoy shopping--this way the ties are shipped straight to their door!
