In our quest to have you looking maddeningly better than the guests of honor this wedding season, today we’ve got for you a pop-up full of ties and dress shirts and imminent made-to-measure happenings that’ll have you doing just that.
It’s an IRL location of The Tie Bar, and it’s open now in Midtown through September.
We’re guessing you’re familiar with these guys’ online operations: they’ve been slinging all sorts of customizable dress shirts, ties, pocket squares, tie bars and other suit-related items for quite some time now. This here’s their third fleeting brick-and-mortar concept, and their biggest to date. Here’s a breakdown of the goings-on:
They’ve got a curated selection of shirts and accessories to grab and go. Everything from simple striped button downs to patterned socks to some bow ties. Take a look around.
A bar-themed menu of wardrobe consultation options is also happening. A few to note include the Frequent Flyer, where they’ll show you how to pack most efficiently with ties that lend themselves to being rolled up and shirts that work with a bunch of different looks; the Black Tie, where you’ll learn how to approach the French cuff and how to accessorize a tux; and the Work Week Warrior, where they’ll focus on streamlining your morning routine and helping you make a statement without being too bold. Which, to be fair, is always a risk you run when pocket squares, colorful socks and bow ties are involved.
Should you want a house call, that can happen too. They’ll be happy to raid your closet and tell you what to keep, what to drop and what to replace it with (hint: it’s gonna be something from Tie Bar).
In about a month, they’ll be launching their first made-to-measure suiting situation. Choose your own fabric (they’ve got mills like Filarte and Vitale Barberis on board, which generally translates to some super soft and handsome stuff), color, pattern or whatever else and give ’em six weeks from your first fit for the jacket or suit to land on your doorstep.
