Men’s accessories, such as ties and pocket squares, are the fine details that complete a look. The devil’s in the details, or so they say, so selecting these accessories with care is just as important as selecting the right suit or business shirt. Here’s a primer to help you sort it out.

Men's Tie Accessories

Wearing a tie to formal gatherings or official parties creates a favourable impression. Merely wearing a tie that matches well with your men's suits, however, may not work for every occasion, especially when the elements conspire against you.


Weather is unpredictable and uncontrollable. So, if you attend an event on a windy day, and your tie is flapping around like an aimless kite, it may wreck those good impressions you worked so hard to create. This is where tie bars, tie chains, and tie tacks come into play as vital wardrobe accessories.

Tie Bars & Clips

The tie bar and its cousins do more than just make sure your ties don't fly over your shoulder or fall into your food during a meal. They also add some panache to your formal wear, which might otherwise appear drab and boring.


A simple stripe of metal like gold or silver is perfectly acceptable. While tie bars go well with men's ties in formal wear, they do add a degree of rigidity or stiffness to your personality. To offset this perception, wear your tie clip at an angle.

Tie Chains

Tie chains work in the same manner as tie bars except a drooping chain supports the tie instead of a fixed bar. Tie tacks also keep your tie in place, although we do not recommend these for all ties.

This is because tie tacks require poking a hole in the tie, which can damage a silk tie. However, if you are wearing a knitted woollen tie, use your tie tacks without concern. If you wear ties frequently, a couple of tie clips goes a long way in adding a flair to your business suits.

Pocket Squares

Pocket squares are another way to jazz up your business suits. A tastefully folded pocket square placed in the jacket's breast pocket adds colour and energy to an otherwise dull ensemble. This is especially helpful for wedding suits and casual suits where flair is desirable.


You should own three pocket squares for each of your first three business suits. Two should be should be solid cotton and/or silk in white. Select the third based on your individual taste and personality, but do keep in mind the impression you want to convey to others.


Matching accessories to your business suits and shirts need not be difficult but it can be time consuming and expensive, especially if you make some buying mistakes. An easier way to handle this task is by consulting the experts of Montagio Custom Tailoring.

It won't cost you a penny - we offerobligation free consultations - and you'll feel more confident and self-assured when you wear your new outfits.

Montagio did a great job on wedding suits for me and my two groomsmen. Bally provided us with fantastic service and the result was definitely superior to an off-the-rack option... more »
