you need: a tie bar

tiebar1

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.

nyc work trip

i’m headed to new york tomorrow for a quick work trip.  i’ll be back on wednesday, so i’m packing light.  most of these items you’ve already seen on to take the train, but they’re worth mentioning again.  here’s what i’m wearing/packing for nyc:

brooks brothers navy fitzgerald two button suit – current my favorite suit that i own.

sid mashburn fox tie – a christmas gift that needs to be worn.  no time like the present.

sid mashburn button down shirt – i never leave home without a white button down.

tie bar from the tie bar – great entry point to the tie bar game.  can’t beat their prices.

gucci horsebit loafers – classic 1980s wall street.  these will be occupying my feet.

filson small duffle – the perfect overnight bag.  hands down.

i’m going to try to do a little shopping while i’m up there, but i’m not sure what kind of time i’m going to have.  i hope to come back with a good post and maybe some new kicks.
