Lowering the bar: why you should move your tie bar down a couple inches.

Tie bars are pretty darn cool, for the most part. They are roguish and sleek looking, and generally a pretty good idea if you are wearing a tie. There are a couple of circumstances where I think it's better to go without the tie bar: 1) If you have a formal occasion, and you are planning to wear french cuffs, a tie bar, and a pocket square, I would suggest picking 2 out of those 3, because any more than that can look either (a) a bit ostentatious, or (b) like you are trying too hard, or 2) If you have an occasion where you need to dress conservatively, (e.g., court appearance, job interview), I would suggest wearing no tie bar.

I'd like to take a few commonly recommended things and talk about why they shouldn't be so commonly recommended. Disclaimer: This Is All Based In Opinion 1
