Hold that collar in place!
When it comes to accessories, people often think that they are just for women, but we're here to clarify this misconception. Menswear has seen a spike in male accessories. From rugged bracelets to hip necklaces, and yes; the flower in the lapel screams GTH (Go-To-Hell). There are some accessories that may seem minute at first glance, however they can pack a powerful punch.
The tie bar, it is literally a bar that holds your tie in place. For something so simple and useful, you'd think every man would own one. Who would want their tie flying all over the place as you run frantically to catch the train? It comes in different shapes and sizes; 1-2 inches, tennis rackets, etc. It's practical and inexpensive. It also gives off the impression that you actually know what you're doing when it comes to dressing yourself in the morning.

Cufflinks are another small accessory that means business. First of all, they keep those French cuffs together, and they peek out from the end of your jacket sleeve to say "Hey you, I'm worth the second look." Cufflinks can be a form of expression, even a conversation starter. We're pretty sure that the girl in the elevator will need some shades after your diamonds blind her.
The Collar Pin & Collar Stay. It goes unnoticed, but it does serve a purpose. It pulls your collar together and pushes the head of the tie forward. The collar stay will keep the end of your collar from curving up at the end. They can be very useful even when not wearing a tie, just to keep your collar in one place.

The lapel pin is all the rage right now. Men are being creative and using everything, from knots (Cufflinks), flowers, chains, you name it. The more creative, the more unique, the better. Experiment with what works for you. We're positive someone will appreciate it, so get ready for the compliments.
Here is a tip: Make sure all your metals match! Cuffs, tie bar, collar pin. It will be the most subtle, but important thing you match.
