WTB: Thom Browne 1" Skinny Tie Bar

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for the ultra slim 1" plain silver tie bar without any patterns, lines or designs.

I'd really like to not pay a mint however. If anyone has a reasonable offer, or knows of a resource or outlet where I can find one (short of phone ordering from NY and spending several hundreds!) I would greatly appreciate it!

Is it possible to find one for under $250??


Similarly, any 1" thick tie bar in a plain silver finnish would make me happy! Vintage or otherwise.

Preferably, I'd love to find the TB for a heavuly discounted bargain though!

Still looking for this short tie clip! Not interested in the one with red/white/blue stripes... I want the plain matte silver finish!

For non-TB tie clips, try the <$25 accessories thread in the FS section.

Could you link me to it please, I can't seem to find that thread.

I'd really like to find a sterling silver 1" clip for thinner square end ties.

Thanks

Bananafish,

What suit is the Asian man in the picture you posted wearing?

Thanks,

Francis

It's also a Thom Browne suit, I believe. Not 100% certain, but it sure looks like his whole wardrobe is TB.

I would really, really, really, like to try and find the TB bar if possible. I've been searching for months to no avail.

Thanks but I'm not looking for the striped bar, which is what BG is selling. I just want the plain silver 1" tie clip with no ethcings, engravings, colors, stripes, etc. Exactly as seen in the photo posted earlier. It's impossible to find!

Thanks bananafish. I looked up pictures of other Thom Browne suits, and most appear ridiculously tight. Apparently this is the Thom Browne trademark? The asian gentleman's suit looks like a good fit though.

I suppose it's just the runway and model shoots that he does... often with ridiculous suit cuts that are way too short. I highly doubt they fit like that off the rack. They are in fact lovely suits, and the one above is a stunning example. In all truth though, you can probably take that picture in to a tailor and have him make you something bespoke which would turn out even nicer. I agree that the gent's suit above is really sharp though. It's got a very minimalist mid century modernist aesthetic, which I really like. I hate those blue/red/white striped tags that look like the French flag and awkward plackets that are popping up all over his newer lines though.

if you look carefully, i think the tie bar in the picture does come with stripes

should be one of these four in the piture

and if you are willing to pay 45800 yen about $600, plus shipping and japanese proxy buy commission, there is someone in japan selling a brand new one

under $200?

there are some non branded ones about an inch long on the market for no more than $30
