People always say “nice tie”.

They can’t help it. Because their eye can’t help but go there.

And that’s because a tie allows you to pull together all the varying parts and patterns of your outfit. It’s a unifier. The think piece of your ensemble.

Thusly equipped with knowledge, get over to Chicago’s Tie Bar, the handsomely appointed pop-up shop in Lincoln Park.

You’ve got till the end of the year to visit. You should go now.

Here’s why: ties.

Plus: a shuffleboard table, a Joe’s pop-up barbershop (you’ll need to call ahead) and, yes, rows and rows of patterned wool, textured silk knits and striped linens laid out for your perusal.

Three styles we recommend:

Plus accessories like belts, socks, wooly scarves and a superb collection of pocket squares.

Oh, and tie bars. Lots of tie bars.

Just remember: the tie is your I-Pass.

Wear one, and you get to where you want to go faster.

Nota bene: The pop-up shop will be hosting a series of events with GQ throughout November and December. Stay updated here.
