Tie bars, often referred to as ‘tie slides’, rose in popularity as a dress accessory in the earlier part of the twentieth century as the use of delicate fabrics to make straight ties became more widespread. They are made to fix the tie to the front of the shirt to give a uniform appearance without the use of clips or pins which may damage the fabric. Interestingly, tie bars are one of the very few items of jewellery which are permitted to wear by United States servicemen and women.
What makes tie bars an enduringly popular men’s dress accessory is the variety of designs and materials available. Our collection of tie bars includes a huge range of designs and materials to suit all occasions and ties. A tie bar makes a terrific men’s gift, and from our engraved sterling silver to our stone set bars there’s one to suit any taste and style.
