    How To Wear Tie Clips

    Posted by

    In a corporate world, tie clips are the bling for blokes!

    Tie Bars

    Clipping a simple bar of metal to a tie should be easy, right? But so many of us get it wrong.

    Too high. Too low. Too wide.

    And do you call them tie bars, tie clips or tie slides? Tie bars can be clips or slides, a clip simply has a clipping mechanism while a slide does just that, slides on like a bobby pin. But call them what you will, their real purpose is to secure both ends of your tie to your shirt front.

    The rule of thumb is that:

    • Wear your tie bar between the third and fourth button of your shirt.
    • Make sure your tie bar is narrow than your shirt.
    • Secure your tie to your shirt front.

    This neat video clip from GQ says it all.

    Bow ties - self tie versus pre-tied bow ties

    Now there’s a question for you! The purists will say self-tied bow ties every time. And for a truly formal look I have to agree. As good as they are today, pre-tied bow ties really don’t cut it for a black – or white – tie event. And once you have the “knack” tying a silk bow tie [...]
