Does anyone else wear collar bars? Â One of the reasons I started buying bespoke dress shirts was to be able to get a collar with eyelets (pinholes). Â I like the way that a collar bar makes the tie knot stand out away from the shirt, and they look great with cufflinks. Â My local tailor thinks I am the only person in town to wear a collar bar. Â Maybe I'll start a new trend. Check out Alec Baldwin in The Aviator. Â His character wears collar bars throughout the movie and I think he looks really sharp. Does anyone know of a source for collar bars? Â I have one $65 Robert Talbott collar bar with white MOP accents on the ends. Â They are also available with colored accents, but I hate to pay $65 each for several more. Â I have not had much luck finding nice collar bars on the internet, and most of my ebay searches have turned up the friction fit type that slides over the collar. Â I want the pin type with the ball that screws onto one end.
