« The tie bar, recrafted. »

Raising the Bar

The tie bar has remained relatively unchanged despite its presence in menswear for nearly a century. After encountering the monotonous selection of bars, clips, and clasps at retail, we at Ellsworth & Clyde decided to take it upon ourselves to add a fresh alternative to the mix.

Through an arduous process of trial and error, we have successfully re-engineered the tie bar by applying a level of consideration and craftsmanship normally devoted to other elements of your wardrobe.

We figure if all of that work went into your suit, jeans and shoes, why should your tie bar be any different?

Utilizing time tested materials like high quality hardwoods and premium leathers, magnetic closures as opposed to those cumbersome clip mechanisms, and dual lengths to fit varying tie widths, this is what we came up with to selfishly appease our desire for a functional and distinctive tie bar.

We hope you like it too.
