Men’s Tie Accessories – Helpful Tips

Today’s tie is a descendent of the European cravat which was a long strip of cloth worn about the neck. A starched, white ruff was then attached to keep the jacket or doublet from becoming marred or stained as well as functioning as a napkin or bib as the need arose. Ties are used now as a fashion statement or as part of a uniform.

We’ve all seen comical situations occur with men and their ties. For instance, when the news camera catches a man walking across the street during a storm and his tie is blowing frantically around his head. Without a doubt, there are also dangers lurking with tie-wearers which need to be taken into consideration, such as when the tie gets caught in machinery. To avoid such circumstances, several smart devices have been invented that enables the tie to be attached to the dress shirt underneath, thereby holding it in place.

The following list gives the names and descriptions of each of these devices:

TIE BAR: Much like the shape and function of a paperclip, this is an elongated strip of metal used to slide across the tie, attaching it to the shirt. Tie bars, also known as tie slides can be found in plain or decorative patterns.

TIE CHAIN: Usually made from gold or silver, and resembling a hanger with a loop to attach to a button with a chain hanging down from either end. The tie is slipped through the loop, hiding the bar and revealing the chain in front.

TIE CLIP: Two or three strips of material joined together by a spring-loaded mechanism which is clipped across the tie and shirt, holding them together. Also known as a tie clasp, they come in a variety of materials, lengths and shapes. Many have decorative engravings, logos or gemstones attached.

TIE STRAP: A relatively new accessory which is slipped through the back of the tie through the label loop then buttoning it above and below. They are usually made of cloth or plastic.

TIE TACK: Also known as a tie pin, this utensil resembles a studded earring with a chain attached to a long, cylindrical piece of metal or weight. The pin is detached from its base and placed through the material of the tie and then reattached to the base. The weight is then slid through a buttonhole, which keeps the tie in place.

It’s a matter of preference which instrument each person uses but one thing to remember with tie pins is that they tend to damage the silk tie cloth when piercing them. When shopping for tie clips, be sure to choose the correct widths and materials to complement your tie collection.

Mens Fashion: Town Meets Country

The autumn/winter season is now firmly upon us, so what does that mean for fashion trends in mens clothes? Well, town really does meet country this season, cosmopolitan boys around the world will be donning their tweed jackets, throwing on a pair of camel-coloured brogues, and strutting their funky bumpkin/preppy stuff through the urban jungle.

This is great news for most of you boys, because you will not have to rush out and buy yourself a completely new wardrobe. Rather, this trend is borrowing from recent fashions, but with twists and turns to bring together a whole new look. This recent trend is neither townie nor country, but takes from both to create a new, exciting, and unique style that will produce incredible results when pulled off successfully.

The country feature of this new trend comes from the traditional, upper-class look. Plenty of tweed, herringbone, and wool to look forward to this winter- great for keeping you warm. Hunting-style jackets, as well as the lumberjack/tree-feller style are big news this season. Bring out your checked preppy, geek-chic, shirts for another year; they fit perfectly with the country/townie look, giving a completely new impression to these mens clothes. Great news then no need to rush out and buy a completely new set of mens clothes, last year’s are perfect and will feel current and fashionable. Make the most of it, because that isn’t how fashion trends normally work.

Now we come to the town side of the fashion, bring out your chinos, your bright coloured trousers, and possibly even your braces. The successful conjoining of town and country will put together the outdoors look with the tailored, slim-cut, geek-chic look. Do not throw out your skinny jeans, this winter they are perfect – team with large, oversized knitwear over a lumberjack shirt and finish off the outfit with either a chunky pair of boots, or a narrow pair of brogues – depending on whether you lean more to the country or more to the townie tendencies of the modern world.

Remember, layering is key this season, do this by layering the upper portions with mens clothes, shirts, jumpers, waistcoats, jackets, and scarves – this gives an extremely masculine air to your silhouette. We mentioned five different items of mens clothes that can be layered, clearly, you should not be too excessive in your layering, layer a maximum of 4 layers at a time, otherwise the look you create is too ‘busy’ giving a confused appearance to the outfit.

Colours are of particular interest this season; bold colours will be all the rage – if you are brave enough opt for bright colour chinos, and layer your top half with neutral colours. When it comes to colour schemes, bear this advice in mind: only wear one item of bright clothing, if you opt for a bright shirt, then wear neutral coloured bottoms, and vice versa – too much colour, and you risk pulling off a country/townie/clowny look – fashion senses are not sophisticated enough to cope with that cacophony just yet.
