Clip Art: 15 tie bars that provide a fantastic finishing touch

clip art 15 tie bars that will provide a fantastic finishing touch cufflinks feat
Immensely useful and a bane of dry-cleaners everywhere, tie bars and clips subtly secure your necktie to your shirt and thus prevent your favorite statement-making vertical piece of silk from accidently flopping into a plate of fettuccine alfredo or, worse yet, a potentially asphyxiating piece of workplace machinery. Aside from their practicality, these gentlemen’s accessories also lend a final touch of polish to dressed-up outfits and indicate that you have paid attention to absolutely every detail of your personal presentation. Hence their status as one of the few jewelry items that the U.S. military allows its members to don while in uniform.

The simple fashion rules of wearing tie bars include clipping them straight across your front between the third and fourth button of your shirt, making sure that they cover three-fourths of the tie’s width – no more, no less – and never wearing them with buttoned-up vests as that’s redundant since vests already do a fine job of keeping your tie properly aligned and protected.

Whether you are shopping for yourself or your Dad this week, here are 15 of my first-ever nonalcoholic “bar” recommendations…. All are guaranteed to keep your cravat stain-free while simultaneously upping your style game.
