Tie Bars: Do’s and Don’ts

Tie Bars and How to Wear Them

We all too often see individuals with the incorrect tie bar placement, so we decided to create the perfect image to represent exactly where the tie bar should be placed. We don’t blame you, we know they can be confusing, but we wanted to make it a little less confusing and give you the perfect placement. That way next time you go to wear a classic tie bar you’re not too cold or too hot, you’re just right. 

We’ve also decided to put a few tie bar and tie combinations down below so you know how to pair your favorite tie with your newest tie bar. Be brave in your color combinations, the opportunities for a silver or black tie bar are endless. We also gave you a dash of color with our favorite turquoise blue tie bar paired with a chic gray necktie.

How To Wear A Tan Suit 3 Ways

How To Wear A Tan Suit


Ready, Set, Spring. Rules To Wearing The Tan Suit.

The tan suit is the quintessential Spring / Summer menswear piece you NEED.  The tan suit is the stylish work horse of warm weather fashion. It can be accessorized, deconstructed, dressed up, dressed down and transformed to fit any said or unsaid dress code. The most important  three events you’ll need a tan suit for are: Business Events, Weddings and Dates.  We have you covered: we’ve created a fool proof guide to what to wear with a tan suit by each of these three occasions.

Business Events

If you have to wear a suit for work and you have to travel, you’ll know the importance of seasonal suiting. The tan cotton suit will be your go to business suit for those hot months. It allows you that hard to achieve balance of style and professionalism. For a promotion-worthy get up, follow the visuals in our chart and pair a tan suit with the proper fashion components and accessories. Stick to the classics with your accessories. We highly recommend either a  power stripe tie or a classic pin dot tie. With business attire, you want to look stylish in the pre-determined classics. Don’t try and re-invent the proverbial wheel.



Springtime is the season for engagements and weddings so be prepared to be deluged by invitations. This is where your tan suit will seriously earn its keep. The key to winning at your wedding look comes down to two factors: colors and accessories. Spruce up your tan suit with pink and coral ties, pink bow ties and patterned pocket squares. Coordinate the colors of your ties with your pocket squares with your socks unless you opt to go sock less which is popular for outdoor weddings.  Tan suits can be dressed up with vests so that is always option you have to differentiate your tan suit.



Look sharp for date night in your tan suit by sticking to a cool palette of tans and navy blues. The contrast of this palette will have your date captivated.  Be sure to mix and match your patterns to show your character and personality. Also, don’t be afraid of “dressing down” the suit by wearing more casual shirts, experimenting with sneakers and loafers and yes, going sockless. This conveys a cool attitude that separates your professional life, from your personal life. For date night, we recommend accessorizing with skinny linen ties and patterned pocket squares

Mix and Match your way through this Spring and Summer with these three A+ looks.
