Well, it looks like tie bars "back in style"

I've always worn tie bars, personally I love them.

Lately, I've been seeing more and more people wearing them. I also noticed the new Paul Stuart catalog has a whole page devoted to tie bars.

So are tie bars back "in" or what? I guess we'll know for sure if we start to see a LV tie bar.

I've seen them in GQ spreads for a little while now, so whatever that represents about their trendiness, they are "in style" to some degree.

I am wearing one at work right now. A vintage Swank model from the 1940s.

People always make a comment about my tie bar.

I'm looking for the thin rod type as evidenced by PG's looks

The last time I wore one was in the '80's when I was a teenager. I'm kinda looking forward to purchasing a few again (all of the ones I inherited from my dad were stolen in a burglary a few years ago- grrrrr...).

I recently got 2 tie bars from my grandfather. One is plain 18k gold and the other is 18k gold with a piece of jade in the centre. I havn't had the chance to wear either. Ill probily get somehting a bit less loud.

I've been meaning to pick up a couple, but do not think I need to be spending more than $15 for each. Anyone know of a place to get decent quality ones at a decent price aside from a general google search?

In the market again....

I had one to slip off while walking on a side walk. I heard it fall, but didn't realize it was my tie clip until I got to my destination. Unfortunately, I didn't find it on my return walk. I've since replaced it, and wear it almost daily.
