Skinny Tie Clips

PRODUCT STORY
Here’s the skinny on men’s style trends: the skinny tie has come back! But if you’re going to rock the look, you need to keep your tie in line. Because of their narrow size, skinny ties can look sloppy as they shift around, and a regular tie clip simply looks too large.

That was the problem solved by style fanatics Alfred English and Apollo Crow. They invented their own patented spring mechanism, for a skinny tie clip that would be suitably sleek. Constructed for durability from steel and rubber, it is capped off in manly fashion with the head of an industrial screw. Handmade in California.

This little tie clip will keep that stylish skinny tie in just the right place! Take a look at the alternate image (by clicking on the thumbnail below the main image) to see the clip in action, then let us know what you think about this fashion-forward design.

Cool. Skinny ties deserve their own tie clip.

I don't know why skinny ties are coming back. I don't know many men who would LOVE a tie clip as a gift.

I like the earrings version of this (and I've purchased these before as a gift) but for some reason, this isn't as appealing to me.

Handmade in the USA is a plus. The industrial look using an actual screw (as opposed to polished, jewelry-ified one) is nice for guys looking for edgier look. Skinny ties are back, along with slimmer suits, so it works for modern gentleman, imo.

It looks like most the men like this and I think that's all that matters. You buy what the person would like, not what you like!

i don't get it. i understand the need for a tie clip but i don't understand the design on this one. good in theory, questionable execution.

Sweet. i don't know anyone who wears those fat, old ties anymore. Skinny is where it's at. This is perfect.

First of all - ties in Colorado - yeah, right! And, I think I have a lot of other things to spend money on than this tie clip.

Amy, clearly there are many men who are not in a stuffy corporate job (where your hubby thinks skinny ties are frowned upon) or not handymen who could use this clip as a fashion statement. That's ridiculous to think you have to be one or the other. It's hip, young
