How To Wear A Tie Bar

The Tie bar is an essential menswear accessory that has resurfaced thanks to a revitalized interest in classic men’s style. A tie bar is a small detail that can have a big impact on a classic look. Here is how to wear it properly.
  • Purpose: A tie bar is meant to keep your tie fastened to your shirt. No one likes a tie that is blowing in the wind or stuck to one side of your jacket.
  • Styles: Tie bars come in two styles: pinch clasp and slide clasp. A pinch clasp will hold the tie more securely and it stays in place better. A pinch clasp tie bar is more appropriate for thicker fabrics. If your tie is made of a thinner fabric then I would suggest the slide clasp tie bar.
  • Placement: A tie bar should be placed between third and fourth buttons on your shirt.
  • Detail: Before you fasten your tie bar, pull your tie upward to blouse it slightly. This will add a nice bit of depth and will keep you from feeling constricted like the tie bar is holding you in place.
  • Angle: Always wear your tie bar perpendicular to your tie and never at an angle.
  • Color: You can never go wrong with silver. Silver is a classic color and it matches almost everything. If you prefer gold and you are wearing gold accessories than go for gold. Always make sure your metals match. Avoid colorful tie bars. A tie bar should be an accent and not the topic of conversation.
  • DON’TS ON WEARING A TIE BAR: A tie bar should not be worn with a vest or cardigan. The purpose of the tie bar is to hold the tie in place. If you are wearing a vest or cardigan it is already taken care of and a tie bar just becomes unnecessary.
