Ever watch an episode of “Leave It To Beaver” where Wally has a big date or Beaver is heading over to dance lessons? Each young man wore a jacket and tie to their respective destination. More than 50 years later, things are a little less formal, especially in Orange County. Wearing a tie definitely indicates that you put some thought into your ensemble, though. That’s especially important during job interviews where an applicant needs to look their best. When you need new neckwear for an important occasion, visit the following Orange County merchants for help and advice.

As some customers point out, going to the GOOD Californian Haberdashery is really like shopping at three places at once. The haberdashery is connected to Barbeer, a barber shop that also serves beer, and the shoe store Heart & Sole. An inter-connected oasis for men in Anaheim, you can buy a tie in the haberdashery, grab a brew and haircut and then look for some new shoes to complete the look. This Orange County location can be the best place to stop when getting ready for an important meeting.
