Hi,I'm sure it's been asked a million times.  I want to buy some H Hudson Herman boots.  I have the option of a 7 or an 8.   I feel the best size for me may be a 7.5.  Should I get slightly too small…Continue

"If the tack is a decent one you can get a new pin soldered on at a jewelers, you can use pencil erasers on the inside of the tie by just poking the pin into the eraser, or purchase a new receiver for the pin."

Anthony Williams replied to Carl Malo Schneider's discussion Tie Pins and Tie Tacks
"Tie tacks can look sharp, but a) they are sharp, and can put a hole in the tie and b) even if that doesn't happen, the catch on the pin will wear down so that eventually it doesn't stay stuck in the holder.  I've never looked…"

"I'm not a fan of tie bars.  Even though the tacks mess with the fabric of the tie I figure that's just a cost that needs to be absorbed for my sense of fashion.  I've thought about the tie chains but haven't found one…"

"Keeps your necktie out of the soup or the shredder for starters. It doesn't mess with the fabric of the tie. You don't need several of them to accommodate different widths of ties. And I'm not talking about the ones that are part of a…"

"A suggestion for something you might try.  A Tie Chain.  Basically a short length of chain attached to a horizontal bar that hooks over a shirt button.  NO holes in the tie, and keeps the tie from flopping around loose.…"

Ian Brett Cooper replied to Carl Malo Schneider's discussion Tie Pins and Tie Tacks
"The first and only time I used a tie pin it ruined the tie. I threw the pin away and never used a tie pin or any tie restraint again. If I need my tie to be restrained, I tuck it into my shirt between the buttons."

Danisatan replied to Carl Malo Schneider's discussion Tie Pins and Tie Tacks
"One can state that such items hurt a tie. I was taught a way, that I think is military, of tucking the lowermost part of the tie into the shirt itself to prevent dangling and floppiness in wind."

Tie Pins and Tie Tacks

Hi, I do realise there are probably many posts on this subject, so I'm happy of course for it to be moved.  But I want to discuss not only tie tacks and pins, but the definitions, and maybe also tie bars. Normally, I don't wear a tie.  I used to years ago, and also liked tie bars, but I got in to the mind set that ties were 'stupid', generally hard to keep clean, demonstrated that 'you're workin' for The Man' and 'passe'.  I do wear suits to work, and like to wear odd jackets.  I almost always…See More

50 books challenge

It's that time of year again!  All the people start planning their New Year's resolutions.  While listening to all the people talk about eating a healthier diet and going to the gym more, I started thinking of a different path.  This past year my urge to read more and more has begun to grow and consume me until all it seems that I do is read.  This year I pretty effortlessly read about 22 books during free time, and mostly easy read novels simply for entertainment.  I did some research into the…See More
