Tie bars: a classic men's accessory that has, to our delight, recently become popular again. The important thing to note when trying out a new accessory, is that you're wearing it well - so here are a few pointers:
Our first, and probably most important tip is to keep it narrow. Don't - we repeat - DO NOT wear a tie bar that's wider than your tie.
A common mistake men make when wearing a tie bar is wearing it too high or too low. The rule is to wear it between the third and fourth buttons of your shirt. And there you have it, folks. It's just that simple.
Now go forth, and wear your tie bar.

Here at Simon Carter, we're all pretty big fans of patterns and bold colours. However, we realize that sometimes, wearing patterns and bold colours at the same time may be a little bit intimidating - especially if your usual outfits consist of a white shirt and trousers.
So, if you're feeling adventurous, we suggest you keep it simple. A louder pattern can be muted when paired with a pair of classic, dark denim. A jacket over a shirt like the one pictured above serves to show just a touch of colour, making your outfit more subtle. The bottom line is, if you want to wear colour, wear it! There are many ways to add interest to an outfit without looking like Craig Sager.

During our daily search for sartorial inspiration, we came across this image from thisfellow:
The entire outfit is a hit in our books, but what really caught out attention was that tie knot. It looks cool, and is actually a lot easier to tie than it looks. Below is our attempt at step-by-step instructions. However, we also suggest checking out this video if you should require more detailed instructions.
And there you have it, folks! The Eldredge knot.

Father's day is just around the corner, and we thought we'd throw a fun, calm; relaxing event for all of our favourite (almost) fathers and (almost) mothers: YOU wonderful folks!
We'll be hosting a prenatal yoga class with Toronto Yoga Mamas and Tealish next week, and you're invited! Dads, what better way to kick-start fatherhood than to pamper both Mum and baby with some relaxation and yoga? Also, keep in mind that as a treat to you, we'll be offering a 20% discount on our merchandise, because we think Dads should get a nice little treat too. (Mums, that was a definite hint.)
RSVP at TorontoYogaMamas.com soon, while spaces are still available.
See you there!
