As a one-size item, I had hoped this would fit adults, but I understand it may be intended for children. For kids or people under 5 feet, it should work well. For adults or taller individuals, it will run small and you will have to tie it with the back of the tie very short to get the front long enough to not look silly. I clipped mine to avoid having the knot come undone.
Purchased for my daughter and it looks as good as some of the pricier options
This was a great purchase for my son's Harry Potter costume. Given that this was labeled as an "economy tie," I was pleasantly surprised by the quality. I'd definitely recommend this item to complete the perfect Harry Potter costume.
This tie matches the Harry Potter costume perfectly and can even use it as a regular tie!!
The tie is purple! So if you are expecting the proper Gryffindor colors you will be disappointed! Does not match the robe. I am surprised that it is an official "Harry Potter" item. I could have found something better at a second hand store for a lot less.
This is a top quality product - a real tie! Reminds me of going to school...although the little band to tuck the short piece into at the back broke after the first use, it can easily be sewn back on. I highly recommend this tie to complete the costume. Top stuff!
Fun, fair quaity, great for Halloween
Worked well for the costume.
Fit my 6 year old great and was as long as a normal tie! I was thinking it was going to be like 5 inches or so, but this was a normal length!
nice silky tie, matched our theme well.
Great for the price.
Although the overall quality of this item is not as high as some of the others I have seen (some have crests etc), it was a great choice for the price. I would rather spend my money on some of the bigger ticket items and accent them with this simpler tie.
If you want a reaslistic but inexpensive version of the Gryffindor tie then this is a great option. If you are wearing a sweater and robe then you don't need the more expensive tie as you wouldn't see the emblem on the more expensive version. This is a great accessory for someone who wants to do an easy Gryffindor/Harry Potter costume.
Completes the look from the Harry Potter series.
TO A KID THE PRICE AND QUALITY IS OK.
My girls loved the tie....just like the movie! This made their costume!
Was worth the price to put the finishing touch on the costume.
Perfect with the Hogwarts cape.
child size again
nice looking tie, matches the robe great
Good quality tie for the price. Autentic colors and feel. Seems durable. Received in less than week. Very satisfied overall.
It is excellent. As many other reviews said the tie is a little more purple than it should be, but does go nice withe the robe.
It looks like a regular tie.
For the price, fantastic. Finishes off my son's costume wonderfully.
This tie is made of good-quality material; however, it ripped a little on the back after it had been worn for a day. It was easy to repair. The color does not match the color of the premium robe.
I figured when I made the decision to be Hogwarts student that I was going to have to pay an arm n a leg to accomplish my goal thanks to you all I will be Hermoine at almost 50% of the cost I thought I was gonna spend
For the price, I was expecting a passable version of the tie, but this is really good quality! Long enough for average adults!!
I ordered this tie for my 9 year old daughter and she loves it. The tie is a bit wide and short so it makes it harder to tie, but overall the product is good. It will fit fine around a smaller neck size but a larger adult would not be able to wear it.
Ordered this for my 8 year old to accent his Harry Potter costume for Halloween. Looks great.
I thought the quality was really good. I am happy with the purchase.
We bought this tie and it looks great. The material is a little hard to work with, but with a little tweaking here and there, we got it to work and it will get the job done.
The color is great but the material was very stiff and hard to tie. However, it does look very sharp.
Although a good quality and price, it definitely wasn't the right colour. It would be better if it was at least burgandy but it's purple.
This is the economy version of the tie. The color is off. More of a purple tint then red. Still worked for the over all effect, just wasn't the exact same as the color as the robe. Since you don't see much of it under the robe, it really didn't matter. I spent more on the better robe, so I spent less on the tie. My son loved it, and that's what counts.
The tie is perfect. Durable and well-fitting. Looks like the real thing.
I was hesitant to buy the tie, thought the robe and glasses were enough, but since I was on a tight time schedule I felt it was safer to go ahead and order the tie! I am so glad I did! It really helped the look of the costume and was of high quality! Wish it all came together as a package but well worth the money spent!
my 7 y/o felt like a little harry potter with this addition to the costume. gotta have the glasses and robe too though!
Was delivered quickly; Product is great quality for the price.
The colors on the tie don't really match the adult robes very well but the actual quality of the tie is nice, especially for the price. Since this tie was for my husband it was a bit short (he's 6'0") but I'm sure it would work great for youth.
I bought this tie to complete my Hermione Halloween costume. The tie itself is a great price, however the shipping was high. I paid more for shipping so I would have it in time for a Halloween party, however the package was very light, and I spent more for shipping than the actual tie. Other than that, the product is great quality, and I can't wait to wear it to the movie premiere coming up.
This is just what I needed to complete my Ginny Weasley costume! It is perfect!!
This went great with a collared white shirt - looked great!
Wasn't sure what to expect of the tie but was amazed at the how much this was like Harry's and the quality was superb for a costume accessory. Would highly recommend the product.
Cute tie for the money. Looks exactly as it does in the movies.
Great tie for price, since it was being worn under the robe no need for emblem so we went with this tie and are very happy!
I bought this tie after reading reviews about the more expensive one being more purple than crimson. I'm glad I did. This tie looks great and is good quality for the price. The only reason I gave it 4 stars overall is because it was a little short for me. I'm 5'11"
I was expecting like a clip on or some cheesy material but this is a real tie made out of a nice fabric. Now I just have to learn how to tie it.
My daughter is happy with her tie. She bought it with her own money.
It said economy but it is a nice quality tie and makes a great addition to the costume with a reasonable price. So don't let the name dissuade you.
My son is so excited to wear this for Halloween!!!
It's a good tie. It looks great with the robe, and it would stand alone as a real tie for my son to wear (if he would wear one normally!).
This is a nice real tie. It's colors are a bit more maroon and goldish yellow. But, it's very nice. Not a clip on! Amazing. Fast shipping and excellent quality. My only complaint is that it is very long. My son is seven and very tall and we have to do a lot of extra work to get it to fit right. It will be mostly under his costume for the most part. So, that is good! The bright side is that he can wear it when he's older or my husband can! Haha
This tie has the look and feel of the real deal. Your child can't be Harry Potter without it!
This tie is perfect for completing the Harry Potter look. My son (age 9) is so excited to wear it even when he isn't donning his Harry Potter costume!
Wow this tie is amazing!! I was blown away that such an inexpensive tie is not only this nice but not really a costume at all, it's a real tie!! My son was thrilled when it came!!
My two kids are both seriously into Harry Potter right now so I bought this tie to go with their ensemble. It works great and looks great! This is not the deluxe version of the tie either so it is cheaper and works just fine!
This is a real tie, just a little shorter for kids. It's a perfect addition for any Harry Potter costume.
I didn't plan on buying a tie, but I couldn't pass up the price to go with my daughters Gryffindor robe. I was very pleasantly surprised about how good the quality of it was!
Great tie. Nice fabric and design. My child really enjoyed this addition to her robe, glasses and wand. Has worn a few weeks already and has held up well, except for me needing to re-stitch the "tie holder" on the inside of the tie, which is really a great feature by the way. Would purchase again. Well worth the money. Haven't seen the deluxe tie for comparison but this fits the bill for us.
I bought this tie as part of a Halloween costume. You know, those things you always regret spending so much money on because IF you can ever use them again, they're outgrown or worn out after just once use. NOT SO with this tie! It wears great on me (yes, I'm an adult, I bought it for myself), and I have plans to wear it to the next two movie openings. And maybe just around the house for fun. Or next time I ever need to wear a tie out. It's great! The colors are PERFECT, the length and width are great. If I could give 6 stars for "Meets Product Expectations" instead of 5, I happily would.
I was pleasantly surprised with this tie when we received it for my son's Harry Potter costume. I assumed it would be made like many costume pieces and wouldn't be worth much. It is actually a real tie and could be worn as one any day. It may not last forever, but it will definitely last for longer than just Halloween!
Both kids went as Harry Potter Characters and this item made it authentic.
My son dressed as Harry Potter for Halloween this year! The tie was the perfect addition to his costume. Good quality! He received lots of compliments.
Cheaper than buying on ebay. Emily looked cute on Halloween wearing the tie and her brother's Harry Potter robe I bought from buycustomers last year for him.
The tie was perfect with my daughter's Hermione costume. Halloween was a very cold night and I wish that I had ordered the scarf instead but this was cute and my daughter loved it. It is a regular part of her dress-up collection.
My daughter loves this tie so much, she wants to wear it to school! The material and cut are beautiful. I was expecting so much less for the price!
This tie was great. It is made of a good quality and was definately worth the money. It is something that my son could even wear as a formal tie. It made a great addition to his Harry Potter outfil.
The quality of the tie was excellent however, the color was sort of purple. We purchased the scraf also and the two colors didn't match at all. They looked really weird together.
The Gryffindor tie completed my daughter's Hermoine Granger costume! She looked exactly like her. The tie has been worn over and over again to one Harry Potter theme party after another and it still looks brand new!
worth the cost ! definately
My son was the best Harry Potter at his school - and the tie completed the outfit!
Worked well for my daughter's Hermione costume. Very large but that wasn't a problem. She loved it!
this harry potter tie looked great and authentic! everyone loved it!
ANOTHER ITEM TO MAKE OUR COSTUME COMPLETE! GREAT QUALITY AND GREAT COLOR. EXACTLY AS PICTURED. WOULD RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYBODY. MEET MY EXPECTATIONS!
Great addition for the costume and it is a real nice tie that you could use again and again for other occasions.
My son hates dressing up, but loved the tie since Harry wears one!
The tie was well made and arrived quickly.
Excellent quality. My son will probably wear it as a regular tie, also.
There's another tie for almost $30 - but my son doesn't need ties for church or school and I didn't see the sense in spending that for a 1-time gig. This was perfect. Held up to two different outings and will still be good for next year.
The quality is good, price is great, and complements the costume. My daughter was not that happy with the idea of wearing a tie, but once she had the whole costume on, she loved it! It is a great accessory.
Can't understand why this is considered an economy tie, unless it's for the low price. It is a high quality, well-made tie, and it's well worth the money!
Nice product, good quality
The tie went well with the adult harry potter robe for my bf. The price is cheap, and you can wear it regularly if you want to too!
The Griffindor tie was the perfect final touch to my daughter's Hermione costume! She uses often in dress-up play, and thinks it is the greatest ever! The colors are bright and the length and quality of the tie are great.
Perfect addition to the costume.
The kids love playing Harry Potter and this tie was the perfect touch for Halloween and pretend play. Great Quality and very quick shipping.
This tie is great!! Great quality! Super Price! This tie is not a toy, it is a real tie (you actually have to tie it). The color of the tie had a slight purple tint, but it still looked great. It was the perfect addition to a Hermione costume.
It's perfect with the robe and without! Cute, cute!
For economy tie i wasn't expecting much but it was a really nice tie! You could totally use it beyond Halloween.
I bought this tie for my daughter who was dressing up as Hermione from Harry Potter for Halloween. The tie looks just like the tie from the more recent movies. My daughter got so many compliments on her costume. You can't get a better tie for this price. Would definately recommend to anyone.
This tie has great, vibrant color and was of very good quality material. It looked stunning!
The Harry Potter tie is ok if you are looking for an older child, but it was way too big on my average sized 8 year old. Also, it would be nice if the tie was a clip on and not a traditonal tie. Would have been easier for my son if he had wanted to take it off during school and put it back on.
There is another set on here that is an official Harry Potter tie. This one did the job. It is great quality as well.
You get what you paid from. Look good but is hard to tie.
The name may be "economy" tie, but it was very nice and made all the difference in pulling the costume together and making the character identifiable. Really glad I bought it.
Hi quality product - nicely made. Nice enough to even wear it for picture day! my son loved it. Added to the look of his costume perfectly, and a great price!
I was expecting something cheaply made, but this wasn't that bad. My son is actually willing to wear it when it isn't Halloween.
This tie has the look and feel of a real tie that you would purchase in a department store. It really completed the costume!
I expected a child's size tie, but this is the real thing. You do have to know how to tie a real tie to use it.
I looked at several different stores and websites for this exact item. Everywhere else wanted 3x as much as buycostumes.com did. I placed the order and received the item just a few days later. I also loved that the shipping price was so low. Thanks!
Great tie especially for the price!!
This tie completes the outfit. My daughter and nephew looked authentic!!
Great addition to the Harry Potter robe costume. It's like the icing on the cake!
My kids were all different Harry Potter kids for Halloween and they loved having these ties. They felt like authentic Griffindor students!
I purchased this for my 4 yr. old to wear for Halloween this year. It fit my husband!!!! We let my little one wear it anyway because I knew I couldn't find a smaller one, but it is not one size fits most.....it is most certainly for an adult.
Bought the tie to complete my Newphews costume. He was so excited and could hardly wait for Halloween. Bought the entire costume from your website. He wore the costume 4 times around Halloween for different social functions and was excited each time to wear it. He loved the costume and it looked great on him. The ordering process and the delivery time were excellent. I would use your company in the future.
My Son received many compliments when he wore this on Halloween night. It feels like fleece and it kept him nice and warm all evening. I do, however wish that the lining color of the robe matched the Gryffindor Economy Tie tie a little better though.
This tie amazed me--I thought it would be too short for a grown man, but is the perfect length. Very adjustable and made of a incredible fabric. Is the perfect last minute touch to the Harry Potter costume! Not to mention---it was a AWESOME price :-)
I bought this tie for my nephews halloween costume. It was a perfict addition to his outfit. The tie is very good quality and I think it could be used as a dress tie as well.
good value, nice tie
This tie is good quality, but just a little too short for taller people. It's a little thicker than a regular tie, but it's still nice for a costume accessory. :)
Great for the price--it's a real tie. A little short and stiff for tall folks.
This tie is like a reall tie....great quality, and really is identical to the tie we see in the movies. If you get the Harry Potter robe, don't forget this tie!
Tie is very well made. My child is a huge Harry Potter fan and loved this tie.
This tie was far better quality than I expected for a childs costume. It is heavy, quality material. The only thing is that the loop to put the back of the tie through came loose after only a few wearings but it is easily fixable.
This is a necessary add on for any Gryffindor student. Great quality and great price!
This was a slightly more purple color than shown. Pushed the term burgandy a bit. It also isn't tied, just and FYI since I had no idea how to tie it I had to call in help, but was VERY cute and completed the outfit perfectly!
Very nice quality. It doesn't look like a costume or a toy. My husband said he would even wear it to work!
I thought the quality was great, but it should come with a pictured instruction book on how to tie it, not just for those who do not know how to tie, but to help teach young men for future purposes.
Great value. Nice.
I agree with the previous reviewer, this item is excellent for being the "economy" tie. I thought that perhaps they had run out of them, and had given me the deluxe version at the economy price. Very nice tie at a great price. Really completes the Gryffindor costume.
This tie exceeded my expectations for a costume piece. It looks very nice!
Although the color of the tie isn't an exact match with the robe, it is a very good accessory for the whole costume and really makes it come together. Very high quality for the very low price.
The tie is very nice and well made. If this is economy, the non-economy version must be made of silk.
The tie is okay. The colors don't match the Gryffindor robe. It's also very short when tied so it would be awkward on an adult. Works fine for a child though.
Very happy with the quality and compliments the robe nicely. My daughter and her friends will be playing with this costume way past Halloween.
This tie is beautiful. Looks great with the Gryffindor robe. Can't get a better deal at any price.
I tried to find other ties and most were in the price range of $20.00. I could not believe the price and the great quality of this tie! Thanks so much!
This "economy" tie was pricey after shipping, but it added so much to our Hermione's costume that I think it was worth the cost. Great quality, shipped on time. All in all, I'm very happy with this purchase.
The best accessory to complete the Harry Potter costume.
this tie was not "costumey" like most things.
The Gryffindor Tie was the perfect touch to my little "Ronald Weasley" this Halloween. The tie itself was of nice quality and was a nice accent with the Gryffindor Robe.
I couldn't have been more satisfied with my recent purchase of three Gryffindor ties. My son, and two of his best friends, are now ready to become Harry, Ron and Hermione for trick-or treating. The ties are truly an outstanding accessory. I am impressed with both the material and construction. I consider my purchase to be both an exceptional value and a great deal of fun.
Even though it was fun,this Gryffindor Economy tie looked absolutely purple in most lighting. it is a nice tie, but a bit disappointing. I would have gone for the next one up, but they were out at the time. Try to order enough in advance to get the redder version!
This is called the "Economy" tie, and I can't figure out why. It is wonderful quality. I was so pleasanty surprised when I opened the package. This is a nicer tie than some of those that my husband has in his closet!
this product really makes or breaks the costume yet the price is very high for a tie and the quality leaves something to be desired.
A nice quality tie that appears as though it has the same workmanshipo as a real tie you would buy (albeit not a fancy silk one)
I've gotten a lot of use out of this (book releases, movie releases, etc.) and have been very satisfied with it. It still looks as good as new, and I always get compliments on my costume.
My daughters Hermione costume was finally complete after we got the tie. A true Gryffindor at last!
The tie is a beautiful silk tie but the color is a little off. Instead of maroon it's more of a purple. It's still unbeatable for the price, I searched all over the internet and buycostumes.com is the cheapest...for almost everything.
Don't spend more on the "Nicer" ties. There is really no point. The colors are a little bit off, but they looked great anyway. They are more purpley than red. We used these ties for a dress up booth and everyone loved them, young and old alike.
My son loves to dress as Harry Potter for hours every day. After a few days of use, the stitching in the tie came undone. Easy to repair, but still required some time. Looks great in the costume though!
Goes perfectly with the robe - a must-have!
Tie is as well made as many men's ties, and it's silky and flexible. Colors of the tie we received were deep dark purple with gold, but it still looked fine with robe.
