Choosing the perfect Tie Bar or Tie Clip


In order to choose the perfect tie bar or tie clip for your necktie you have to understand the difference between them, choose the right size, the right colour and the perfect position.

Here at The Tie Clip Store we argue that Tie Clips or Tie Bars are a must on your Necktie. Why? Because it keeps your tie in place, allowing you to look sharp at any moment - on the run or not-. It also makes your style look polished and thought-out.

Tie Clip or Tie Bar: Simple! If your tie is made of a thin material use a Tie Bar (slides through easily) and if your necktie is a bit thicker, has more structure use a Tie Clip.

The Right Size: A good rule of thumb is to use a tie clip or a tie bar that is 3/4 of the width of the tie or less. We offer the 3 sizes in our collection that will match every necktie in your closed - 1 inch, 1.5 inch, 2 inch

How to wear a tie clip and a tie bar based on the size of the tie  

The Perfect Position: Place your tie clip or tie bar on your tie between the third and fourth buttons of your dress shirt. 

The Right Colour: As with anything, the colour of your tie clip or tie bar is a question of taste. Too much information is never pleasant to the eye. A plain tie can easily handle a tie clip with a design but the opposite can be hard to pull off. 

Of course, the go to tie clips or tie bars are silver or gold. A rule of thumb is that it has to match the other metals on your ensemble such as your belt buckle, watch, and cufflinks.

If you are feeling more adventurous, you can try a coloured tie bar or tie clip. Make sure the colour coordinates with your outfit and the occasion. You can easily wear a vivacious colour on a monochromatic tie as long as it is the only splash of colour or it feeds off your pocket square.
