The History of the Tip Clip

Brief History

The history of the Tie Clip.  The Tie Clip came into prominence as a men's fashion accessory in the 1920s as the successor to the Tie Pin.

In the late 1800s mens’ neckwear was produced from very light fabrics, which creased easily and were easily blown around by wind, so the Tie Pin was a necessary gents tool.  Also, during this period the waistcoat was high fashion worn by every gent, warranting the Tie Clip unnecessary.

In the 1920s tailors began to create what we know as today’s ties.  They were produced in heavier fabrics and out of three pieces of material cut at 45 degree angle, which prevented wrinkling and allowed the tie to lay flat.  It was at this point the Tie Clip became a popular accessory.  In World War One the Tie Clip became part of British Military Officer Uniform.

The Tie Clip has been the mens’ fashion accessory of choice by many style icons from Fred Astaire to James Bond.
