“For the longest time, I had talked about wanting to start a business to cater to guys like me. Guys who aren’t necessarily fashion forward or style educated, but still wanted to look good.”
Ming Justin Cheung, owner of Puzzle Creations, is not only leading a hair and makeup firm in Toronto but now has also launched TYTAN—A line of custom ties and bow ties for any occasion. As a hair stylist Ming often is found working with brides and grooms, which has had his ears perked with many discussion on grooms having a hard time finding ties/bowties to coordinate with event. And for many for us we’re sure have had the moment of preparing for an event but couldn’t afford nor find a custom tie to stand out like Kanye at the Grammys.
That’s why TYTAN was born, to help every man create their own custom ties for every occasion but ties that are versatile, practical, stylish, and sometimes reversible. Those looking for a custom solution meet Ming for a consultation at which the TYTAN team helps pick a style that best fits your personality or if you know what you want you can work with the TYTAN team to choose your own pallet and print, along with a chance to browse the existing collection.
After a tie is created for you or another the custom creation becomes part of the collection for everyone else to possibly purchase. Ming tells us why TYTAN custom ties are a better gift then any other:
“The great thing about giving something like this as a gift is that you can personalize each (bow) tie. Each box comes with a card inside in which the (bow) tie is named after the recipient. You, as the, “gift giver” can include qualities of that person and why you chose the color and print that you chose. For Groomsmen, skip out on giving ANOTHER pair of cufflinks that they won’t wear – this is definitely more practical and meaningful!”
The first collection from TYTAN was created and named after friends of Ming who inspired his journey to bringing his startup to life. If you’re a man looking for reversible, versatile, and fashion-forward ties or bow ties you can look through the lookbook and connect with Ming for a consultation on the Puzzle Creations website.
