Established in 2009, Clarke & Barba was inspired by a mutual love for one another and for fashion during a chance meeting in 1993. After establishing what is now Clarke & Barba, they have finally released a line of accessories for all to enjoy.

With their “fashion is about confidence” ethos, Clarke & Barba hope to share that confidence, share the fashion, share the Mode Populi.

“Fashion (Mode) for the People (Populi). Fashion is about confidence. It’s like walking with a smile on your face or having good posture. Wearing something that makes you look good on the outside will make you feel good inside*. Therefore giving you confidence to do what you want with your life. We want to share this way of positive thinking with the things that inspire us in fashion. To share the confidence, share the fashion, share the Mode Populi.”

 A dimple is certainly not required when wearing a tie, but I think it usually looks better with than without. Generally speaking, the higher quality the tie, the better the dimple. That’s because the materials used, both for the outer shell and inside lining, will affect how well the tie will curve. 
 I’ve also found that many times, though not always, a better dimple can be produced using the  double four-in-hand  knot, like you see here on our friend Mistah Wong. Whether you can use this knot depends on how high your trousers are and how long your tie hangs. You always want both ends of the tie to be no further than three inches or so apart from each other, and for the front blade to end at about the middle of your belt. Obviously, these things don’t have to be exact, but those are the general guidelines, and you may not want to have the tie end at your sternum just for the sake of having a nicer dimple. Unless you’re  Bryan Ferry , anyway.
