Ties and Totes

  • "Every day should feel this good," says Vineyard Vines, our partner in bringing you VanEck ties and tote bags. While we couldn't agree more, we know that managing other people's capital is serious business and sometimes the salty sea air seems very far away. When stress takes center stage, we hope our whimsical ties and totes will inject a dose of playfulness into your busy day.

    Each year we tap into a prominent investment trend or news development and bring you an amusing depiction of that theme on our signature Vineyard Vines silk ties and carrying totes. Past ties and totes have featured QE3 (the third round of quantitative easing), Janet Yellen, Mario Draghi, and Ben Bernanke, among others.

    In 2015 we issued at midyear a special Alexander Hamilton tie celebrating Hamilton’s visage on the U.S. $10 bill. At yearend we released a second tie and tote featuring the Renminbi flying over the Great Wall to become a worldwide currency.

    Interest in our ties and totes has grown over the years, eliciting comments from reporters, businesses, and social media commentators. We are especially proud that the WSJ took notice of our sartorial fun.

    We are always on the lookout for new ideas. Please send your suggestions to our CEO, Jan van Eck.
