I bought this along with other things on my first purchase from Art of the gentleman. I can say that I was impressed. The quality of their products is amazing. They completely exceeded my expectations. And I highly recommend any item from them to step up your dapper attire. It’s all about the details and they pay attention to just that. The tie bars are made out of a high quality heavy metal. Art of the Gentleman really has the competition beat on suit accessories that are of highly quality at an affordable price.
