you need: a tie bar
it was awards week here in nashville. the performance rights organizations held their awards sunday through tuesday and the cma awards were on wednesday. i was lucky enough to attend the bmi awards (thanks bradley) and the cma awards. why am i telling you this? one because i’m event dropping (kind of like name dropping) and two because i had to dress up twice this week. the one thing i’ve been adding to my suit game more and more over the past few years is a tie bar. if you are not the proud owner of 1 or 2 or 10 tie bars, then it’s time to change that. start simple with a 1.5 inch silver tie bar like the one you see above from the tie bar (not just a clever name). after that the world is your oyster. feel free to mix and match as you please. the tie bar is a great place to start.
