How to Wear a Tie Bar or Clip

'Mad Men' is causing a surge in men's accessories, including tie bars and tie clips. Aaron Marino of alpha m. discusses the latest trends in men's accessories.

Tie bars and tie clips can be worn in the same fashion. Go to the 4th button down. Open it up, align it, and place it there. You can wear between the 3rd and 4th button as well. Don't go super high or low. Depending on the jacket and its stance, the bar or clip may be adjusted accordingly.

A jacket with a high stance should have the bar or clip higher to be visible. For regular or low stance, place bar or clip at the 4 button position is appropriate. Look polished and presentable with these accessories.
