ABOUT US

“THE TIE RE-INVENTED”

Invented in Alaska in 2010, GoTie is the brainchild of Army veteran and small-business owner, Adam Lucero, who set out to offer a new, high-quality solution to an age-old men’s fashion problem:

How can all the benefits of a necktie be enjoyed without any of the hassles?

GoTie is the answer! It’s The Tie, Reinvented™ . . .

GoTie is an adjustable necktie that employs patented slide-knot innovation to provide a perfectly “tied” tie—every time. This amazing tie looks, feels, and wears exactly like a pricey standard necktie, but never needs to be tied or untied; and it costs only a fraction of fine designer neckwear.

As a direct-to-consumer online retailer, GoTie, LLC is structured for the convenience and price considerations of its customers. In addition to offering GoTies in a wide variety of tasteful patterns and colors, GoTie, LLC also carries a signature collection of classic, all-cotton dress shirts that complement all GoTies and every wardrobe.

Currently, GoTie merchandise is only available online to the public. In order to make GoTies and its signature shirt collection available to customers around the world, GoTie, LLC is exploring commercial partnerships with various online and traditional retailers. As the company continues to grow, new GoTie patterns and clothing collections will be available for purchase.

In 2013, GoTie, LLC entered into an agreement with one of the world’s largest gaming companies, to supply its employees with high-quality, hassle-free, durable neckwear.

As a privately held company that uses the latest in American tie design innovation, GoTie, LLC’s products are produced with leading-edge textiles and have a money-back guarantee. GoTie, LLC is an equal opportunity enterprise, with a commitment to sustainability.

ABOUT OUR FOUNDER: ADAM LUCERO, CEO

A general refusal to quit and a determination to find better ways of doing things have always been two of Adam Lucero’s defining qualities. Throw in the attitude of a tinker and the technical skills one might naturally expect of a Blackhawk helicopter pilot (Mr. Lucero is a Captain in the U.S. Army with more than a decade of experience) and one has an idea of the tenacity of GoTie’s founder and CEO.

An inventor and experimenter since he was young, Mr. Lucero already had several patents to his credit when he conceptualized the GoTie in 2010 during a military PCS from Alabama to Alaska. Suppose, Mr. Lucero speculated, why not create a tie that offers the wearer an option better than the clip-on or zipper tie? Better yet why search the internet on how to tie a tie in the first place?

Working on that simple premise, Mr. Lucero designed the very first GoTie prototype using cardboard and a pair of ordinary neckties. From these humble beginnings (and after casting aside dozens of unworkable preliminary designs over a two-year period) Lucero invented his patented, “slide-knot” that is at the heart of every GoTie.

Using his own seed money to fund an initial collection of 25 different designs and colors, Mr. Lucero established GoTie as an online retailer in 2013. Offering his signature product, the GoTie, as the absolute superior of a traditional necktie in every way (yet designed to cut ten minutes off a wearer’s dressing routine versus standard neckties), GoTie is already attracting a notable online presence.

Following two additional rounds of private funding, Mr. Lucero moved GoTie to the Las Vegas valley in late 2013 in order to leverage the state’s business-friendly climate. Under Mr. Lucero’s personal direction, GoTie has expanded with a signature line of all-cotton dress shirts and is considering adding new GoTie designs and patterns in the future.

In order to maximize GoTie’s growing reach while keeping costs to its customers low, Mr. Lucero continues to market GoTie’s products direct via the company’s Website, though partnerships with Philips Van Heusen (PVH) under the trademarked name Tie Right are sold in traditional, brick-and-mortar retailers: JCPenny and Kohl's

A native of Colorado and a veteran of several overseas military deployments, Mr. Lucero currently resides in Las Vegas, overseeing GoTie’s day-to-day operations.

8. Promotion Restrictions

8.1. You are free to promote your own web sites, but naturally any promotion that mentions GoTie.com could be perceived by the public or the press as a joint effort. You should know that certain forms of advertising are always prohibited by GoTie.com. For example, advertising commonly referred to as "spamming" is unacceptable to us and could cause damage to our name. Other generally prohibited forms of advertising include the use of unsolicited commercial email (UCE), postings to non-commercial newsgroups and cross-posting to multiple newsgroups at once. In addition, you may not advertise in any way that effectively conceals or misrepresents your identity, your domain name, or your return email address. You may use mailings to customers to promote GoTie.com so long as the recipient is already a customer or subscriber of your services or web site, and recipients have the option to remove themselves from future mailings. Also, you may post to newsgroups to promote GoTie.com so long as the news group specifically welcomes commercial messages. At all times, you must clearly represent yourself and your web sites as independent from GoTie.com. If it comes to our attention that you are spamming, we will consider that cause for immediate termination of this Agreement and your participation in the GoTie.com Affiliate Program. Any pending balances owed to you will not be paid if your account is terminated due to such unacceptable advertising or solicitation.

8.2. Affiliates that among other keywords or exclusively bid in their Pay-Per-Click campaigns on keywords such as GoTie.com, merchant, www.gotie, www.gotie.com and/or any misspellings or similar alterations of these – be it separately or in combination with other keywords – and do not direct the traffic from such campaigns to their own website prior to re-directing it to ours, will be considered trademark violators, and will be banned from Merchant’s Affiliate Program. We will do everything possible to contact the affiliate prior to the ban. However, we reserve the right to expel any trademark violator from our affiliate program without prior notice, and on the first occurrence of such PPC bidding behavior.

8.3. Affiliates are not prohibited from keying in prospect’s information into the lead form as long as the prospects’ information is real and true, and these are valid leads (i.e. sincerely interested in GoTie's service).

8.4. Affiliate shall not transmit any so-called “interstitials,” “Parasiteware™,” “Parasitic Marketing,” “Shopping Assistance Application,” “Toolbar Installations and/or Add-ons,” “Shopping Wallets” or “deceptive pop-ups and/or pop-unders” to consumers from the time the consumer clicks on a qualifying link until such time as the consumer has fully exited Merchant’s site (i.e., no page from our site or any GoTie.com’s content or branding is visible on the end-user’s screen). As used herein a. “Parasiteware™” and “Parasitic Marketing” shall mean an application that (a) through accidental or direct intent causes the overwriting of affiliate and non affiliate commission tracking cookies through any other means than a customer initiated click on a qualifying link on a web page or email; (b) intercepts searches to redirect traffic through an installed software, thereby causing, pop ups, commission tracking cookies to be put in place or other commission tracking cookies to be overwritten where a user would under normal circumstances have arrived at the same destination through the results given by the search (search engines being, but not limited to, Google, MSN, Yahoo, Overture, AltaVista, Hotbot and similar search or directory engines); (c) set commission tracking cookies through loading of Merchant site in IFrames, hidden links and automatic pop ups that open GoTie.com’s site; (d) targets text on web sites, other than those web sites 100% owned by the application owner, for the purpose of contextual marketing; (e) removes, replaces or blocks the visibility of Affiliate banners with any other banners, other than those that are on web sites 100% owned by the owner of the application.
