    How Should You Wear a Tie Bar?

    Always Follow Our S.W.A.G. Rule:

    Style, Width, Angle, and Garment!


    We recommend you keep it simple. Start with silver, gold, rose gold, or matte black tie bars to match all your different tie patterns and colors.


    The width of your tie clip should always be shorter than the width of your tie. So, if you have a skinny tie we would recommend a shorter tie bar.


    We always advise angling your tie clip horizontally across between the third and fourth button of your shirt. Keeping your tie bar horizontal at all times will always give off a fresh look.


    Your tie bar should always be clipped to your garment! After all, we don’t want your tie moving around! Most importantly, your tie bar should always be positioned between the third and fourth buttons of your garment. You never want it too high or too low.
