Tie Clip 101 – 3 Rules to Perfect the Look

Posted by The Little Link on

The tie clip is a quintessential menswear accessory that has enjoyed resurgence in popularity. A tie clip (or tie pin) is a small detail that can have a big impact on your look.

 The tie pin is meant to keep your tie fastened to the placket of your shirt. The last thing we want to see is a fine tie pin be attached only to the tie and simply left to swing in the breeze.

Here’s how to wear it properly.

Placement

Wear Your Tie Clip Right - between the third and fourth buttons of your shirt

We see guys wearing their tie pin too high or too low all the time. The rule is simple: It goes between the third and fourth buttons of your dress shirt.

Purpose

It may sound obvious, but a tie pin doesn't just clip the front end of your necktie to the back end. It fastens both ends to the placket of your shirt.
