On my last day in the Ukraine, Kiev Mission, some the very thoughtful members of one of the local congregations sent me home with gifts. One gift was a necktie with the same colors as the Ukraine flag.

That is when I realized that not only did I love the people of the Ukraine, but I also appreciated my time there…so much so that I was grateful to have a tie that would always remind me of my time there…a tie that means something.

It is with that in mind that I created Statesman Ties back in 2006. We use the tagline “A Tie That Means Something,” because our custom neckties are more than just a fashion statement. As well, you can add a customized, embroidered tag to the back of each tie! This is a great way to make a special tie very, very unique. Wearing a Statesman Tie is a statement of pride and a remarkable way for people to be reminded of a country or State they’ve served in as an LDS Missionary, or simply a place that they are from, fond of or like to visit.
