Tie clips emerged in the early twentieth century as a stylish way to keep delicate straight ties neatly secured against a shirt without the use of pins, which would damage the expensive silk. Instead, they employ a functional crocodile clip to stop the tie from swinging to and fro, offering a uniform appearance with a stylish detail.
Tie clips are a versatile and popular dress accessory, and a fantastic gift, thanks to the variety of styles and designs available. Among our range of tie accessories we have a collection of flag tie clips which are superb for wearing to sporting events, or simply for displaying a little national pride. They feature a number of national and regional flags in enamel on a rhodium plate clip, making them perfect for wearing to both formal and casual occasions.
