Insider's Picks: Five Tie Clips to Up Your Suit Game


When donning an impeccable suit, it’s important to go into the details. One might argue that a tiny cuff link or tie clip is an optional accessory which nobody really notices, and that the trick lies in a great watch or a lucky bracelet. Now, we’re not discounting a great wrist game, but you’ll be surprised how seemingly tiny details can elevate one’s suit game into the most dapper of dapperness, starting with these:

Alexander Mcqueen


We love Alexander McQueen for his trademark bad ass skull motif, which instantly gives a fresh, rebel edge to a sort of tired elegance – and this sword-shaped silver-tone bad boy is our go-to finishing touch to any sophisticated yet admittedly safe look.



This Rose Gold-Plated Sterling Silver number is a collaborative creation with Deakin & Francis, and salutes the classic British style with an elegant rose-tinted gold finish that carefully blends the contemporary with the classic. Pair this with a crisp white shirt and an elegant black tie for a subtle pop.

Thom Browne


You’d recognize Thom Browne for his avant-garde looks and his penchant for the details, and this silver tie clip is no different. The label’s authority debonair dressing easily extends to this detailed number in hard-wearing enamel, meticulously engraved in Japan, complete with their signature stripes.

Alice Made This


This one’s for those who prefer to keep it really classic. Besides, there’s no harm in simplicity – in fact, a strikingly simple piece can be far more beautiful than a messy, over-detailed one that looks as though it tried too hard. This 'Bancroft' tie bar is crafted by a master silversmith in Birmingham's Jewelry Quarter, cast in a sophisticated solid sterling silver, with polished and matte surfaces for a refined touch.

Paul Smith


For an effortlessly cool finish, go for this sleek silver-tone number, engraved with a diamond-cut motif in the middle. Black and silver go with each other excellently, adding an aura of collectedness with an air of elegance. Best worn with a narrow tie to vibe with the tie clip’s sleek persona.
