Set the Bar

A tie bar is traditionally meant to keep your neckwear from flying away from your chest and into your soup, or whatever other liquids and messes that silk can find. These days it is more a matter of elemental dressing than function, but it's nice to have something holding you back on the odd chance that you can't handle that matter on your own.

Tie bars add an element of swagger when worn properly. They say to your on lookers that you took time to get dressed in the morning, and that you care about details enough to not just rush out of the house. They are in the same league as cufflinks, pocket squares and coordinated leather accessories.....and maybe even a cut above because of the infrequency with which they are donned by the general masses.

Put one on.....wear it on a little angle and have people wondering why.
