Men's Tie Bars & Tie Pins
I've noticed that the tie bar has made a bit of a return. I myself have a couple, and have been wearing them for a while now, after reading an article on FashionBeans about officewear. I also noticed that a lot of the features on FashionBeans include them.
Recently I have noticed a lot more of them on TV, but have also noticed that they are being worn very high (about an inch from the tie knot). Is this a recent fashion trend? or is this just the "done thing" when wearing one with a suit?
I have to admit, I thought the idea of a tie bar was to keep the tie from blowing around, and hence the fact it clips the tie to the shirt. I don't see how if this were true, they'd be very effective worn so high? I wear mine at the base of my chest (just below nipple height).
