Tie To A Cause

IMG_8370

Heroes.. That word gets thrown around a lot, whether it’s the newest guy with super strength and a cape or the best basketball player in the NBA. This post is going to be about someone I now consider a hero to America. 

David Fin is the CEO and mastermind behind David Fin Ties. Like other high end tie makers, these guys search all over the globe (let’s be honest, Italy is always bound to win) to find the best fabrics to use in some outstandingly stunning creations. It seems easy enough in theory; get fabric, cut into strips, tie around neck, and done.. Wrong, a tie is a statement piece. It is the one thing that can take you from Miami Vice character, to the new star in the 50 shades of grey movie with just a simple knot. Making the decision between two styles and trying to decide which will put a smile on someones face and which will just make people ask why. I can’t imagine the stress on these guys to get it right each and every time.

But that isn’t what this is really about. No, David Fin Ties goes beyond the manufacture of ties. They support a little movement by the name of Hiring Our Heroes. By support, I mean they make sure that a piece of each and every tie does a part in hiring a veteran who has proudly served his country and all of us, and who has found his or herself in the difficult situation of finding a meaningful job in a market that is more concerned with the piece of paper you can hang on a wall, than the hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of training that goes into every member of our military. These men and women learn discipline to a fault, as well as gaining a work ethic matched nowhere else in the world. Veterans have spent a career learning how to be trained and be the best at adapting to any situation they are dropped in, so naturally they are some of the best and most trustworthy employees available.

I am particularly familiar with this topic, because I had the honor of serving this great country as a United States Marine, and doing my little part to make sure we keep the freedom that was fought for many years ago. So, when I was sent a tie and thanked for my service by the man himself, I gained a new hero. I will wear his tie with pride and know that I was able to do just one more tiny thing to help the great men and women of this country, which will now and forever include Mr. David Fin.

    First, thank you for your service.
    Second, my husband is in the Air Force and I like to support any business that supports veterans. This isn’t one I knew of, and that’s a nice looking tie. I think I’m going to do some early Father’s Day Shopping! Thank you!

      Thank you so much Cyndi for your service as a wife (which I’m sure sometimes is even harder work) and for your husband’s service. I absolutely love the ties they make. they are better quality than any of the 40 others I have and it is so great to know that there is a portion of every tie that goes to helping vets find meaningful jobs. Let me know which one you end up with. Thanks again.
