This tie clip was a Christmas gift from Pater (guest column here). It's chrome with a little filigree at the end. I wear it almost every day now. I know Mad Men and mod dressers have made the tie clip a Hip Thing to Wear, but there are several reasons I nominate it for A Trend That Should Stay.
1. They keep your tie out of your food and drink, away from the edge of your desk (snags galore), and nowhere near distractingly pendulous as they follow your pivots by gaily swinging.
2. Seriously, how many reasons do you want me to give to justify an understated, classy, personal, functional accessory that men actually get to wear?
