One often-overlooked piece of clothing that can cause a significant amount of shrink is men’s ties. Right now millions of teenage and adult men are looking for ties. They need them for proms, and commencement ceremonies, job interviews, and don’t forget Father’s day is just around the corner. What Dad hasn’t received the ubiquitous tie as a present there?
Clothing security tags aren’t just for the rest of a man’s wardrobe. Ties need their own clothing security as well. Ties pose a specific risk because they can be easily concealed. Ties can be rolled up and shoved into a pocket, or they can be stretched flat against a shoplifter’s body. Ties can even be tied on and worn out the door.
Because ties can easily range from $30 to well over $100 or even two hundred dollars a shot, any losses can add up quickly.
Clothing security in the way of soft labels is the easiest way to go. While you can use a hard tag, I would caution as to where you attach it. Since most ties are a silk, or silk blend, the EAS tag’s pins can easily catch, creating a run and ruining the tie.
Don’t get caught off guard because you were too busy trying to protect your other merchandise. Don’t forget to tie one on.
