I got the silver with work patina in straight and it adds some unique character compared to a polished tie bar to a suit. The weight of it feels great and looks nice on a tie.
This tie bar is great. I got the silver one, and it looks great, attaches securely and is much better quality than the cheap one I bought elsewhere. If you are on the fence, go for it!
When I saw what Studebaker had tie bars, I immediately added one to my order. I have a couple of other tie bars from groomsman duties and the like, but they're all pretty underwhelming. This tie bar is a solid go-to for any outfit; a one-and-done sort of accessory. It packs a lot of aesthetic punch for such a small detail, and Studebaker nailed it. I went with the Silver straight bar with a work patina, and I love it.
This tie bar is the perfect addition to a suit.
It looks classy while still showing character. I don't think I will ever where a tie without it ever again.
