Ulterior Motive

Ulterior Motive

The details that set you apart.

Yes, that's us.

When founding Ulterior Motive in 2006, the initiating force was frustration. There simply wasn't enough good designed products out there. Or maybe there was, but they were ... well, simply a bit boring. The ambition was - and still is - to offer something different as opposed to most of the accessories available today. To inspire you to dare cross the conservative line, break free and be a rebel without a pause.

Ulterior Motive is more rock than business. Hell, yes!

Ties are an important part of our product range. When it comes to ties, our philosophy is that you can wear a tie just about anytime. (Bet you didn't think you could). We believe the reason why (almost) nobody does this today is that the ties that you find in stores are either meant for business or dinner parties.

Our question is - why can't you wear a tie at the weekend barbeque?

The products we design today have the goal to carry a subtle edge, not to be in-your-face, but rather something you notice in the details. We would never put out a t-shirt with just our logo, but most likely a woven skull on the back lining of a tie.

Some of the things we like: Pharrell Williams, sixties airline logos, Iggy Pop, Oscar Niemeyer's Brasil, Sir Paul Smith, the cover of Kraftwerk's "The Man-Machine" LP, Old Fashioned, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Don Draper & Co ...

Getting in touch with our customers is the greatest delight. We always strive to give the outmost attention to service matters, and love to get feedback. Both the goods and bads! Please feel free to write us, or connect with us at our Facebook page.

Best regards,
Håkan / Ulterior Motive
