Why You Need a Tie Clip or Tie Bar
There are only a few reasons why you should complement your tie with a tie clip, but they’re good ones:
- A tie pin helps keep your tie straight.
- Tie bars keep your tie from falling in your soup.
- Tie clips are a must-have item for windy days.
- Tie pins may be small, but the right one can pack a big punch visually.
What’s the difference between a Tie Clip & a Tie Bar?
The difference between a tie clip and a tie bar is in the way it clips to your tie and shirt. A tie clip usually has ‘teeth’ to keep it in place, while a tie bar slides over your tie. Tie bars are typically preferred for delicate ties.
Where should you position your tie clip?
Men may be tempted to wear their tie clips very low to keep the tie out of their food. If that’s the case, opt for a bib. Correct fashion style dictates that the tie bar should be worn in the middle of the breast pocket or between the 3rd and 4th buttons of the shirt.
