Broderick has them in gold ($175) and well as gold plate ($30), and in a variety of lengths.

Having just turned 40, I feel comfortable wearing these now, and am really liking the look. I much prefer the safety pin style to the bar. For some reason I feel like the bar looks too perfect and contrived, while the safety pin looks stylish yet almost functional. I find they really look sharp when paired with knit ties because the fancy quality of the pin is counterbalanced by the knit. And it is a look not a lot of people are wearing.

A pic from about 5 years back..

I have many vintage ones since this pic and I love how they hold the collar up.

This is a modern one... interesting how all the modern bars tend to be huge when compared to what they were making in the 30's

I have posted this pic many times here. It's the most inspiring scene out of all the many great movies I've watched over the years. In fact, this very image helps me cope with the stress of Med School and gives me an idea of what life may look like when I am starting to make some money. For now, I'll can live being poor and improperly dressed.



Needless to say, pin collar is my favorite type of collar.

Pretty sure that's a tab collar, but it provides much the same effect. Great collar size too.

Hi J,

So if that's a tab collar, where does the little band between the collar go? Over the tie knot? I don't see any band over Leo's tie?

It goes under the knot, puling the collar together and pushing the tie up, much like a pin does.
