These are the little things that add flare and style to your look. Distinct pieces of accessories give that edge, that unique mark that elevates one above their contemporaries. They make you the first among equals. Over the next few weeks the blogs will take a look at the different accessories that the modern gentleman should have.
The tie pin
The tie pin, also known as the tie clip or the tie clasp, refers to a horizontal clip used to secure the tie to dress shirt, thus keeping it in place. Ties can become annoying when they’re blown all over the place. The constant shifting from side to side could easily distort your look and is often very distracting.
Coming to prominence about some 20 years after the appearance of the modern tie, it has seen this popularity wane and then make a come back in recent years. This functional accessory also finds use as an advert for different persons, countries, products, organizations or alma maters.

You could go with a small tie pin and a broad tie. Sometimes it’s how you wear the clothes and not so much what you wear. “The man wears the clothes.” Not the other way around.
The Tie Thing
Some time last year I came across this simple implement that does the same job as a tie clip but it remains hidden from sight. These are made from fabrics and come in various colours. As for pricing, they’re quite cheap. Going for 10 quids.

The Lapel Pin
Ever wondered what’s that little flower men wear on the lapel of their jacket? Better yet, take a look at the jacket Harvey is wearing here. Notice that the lapel on your right carries a small opening at the top.
Gentlemen, we all need to walk with handkerchiefs. Never leave your house without one in your pocket. Not a face rag or a bandanna, just a simple and plane hanky.
