Classic Medium Tie Chain. Tie Chains are similar to tie clips in the sense that they keep your tie close to your body so that it wouldn't be flailing around everywhere. The reason some prefer tie chains is because unlike the tie clip, it doesn't leave dents and creases on your tie. The way to use is is simple. Use the arched metal piece to hook onto a button midway down your shirt underneath the tie. Then, pull the tie through the chain. The chain should now look like a "U" over the tie. The Classic medium tie chain in Silver is both stylish and efficient.
