Lower Your Tie Clip
I like this photograph of Sean Connery on a bicycle for a lot of reasons. It’s not only amusing to me, but gives you an idea on how well-fitting clothing allows you to move. It illustrates that “fit” doesn’t exactly mean “ultra slim”. 
But there is a small detail worth pointing out in this photo about the functionality of accessories, too. Notice Connery’s tie clip is positioned about half way down his shirt — as I think it should be. 
I’ve noticed a lot of guys wearing their tie clips up higher — presumably to show them off — but the tie clip becomes more irrelevant the further up it travels toward your neck.
A tie clip (or tie bar, tie tack or tie pin) should help keep your tie flat against your chest as you wear it, especially without a jacket. This helps keep it from getting in your way as you lean over to do work, eat, or in this case ride a bike without having the wind flap the tie’s blades in your face.

James Bond, in what Will Boehlke calls: “The most basic of lightweight combinations: blue tropical weight suit,  white shirt, black shoes and a solid satin or knit necktie.”

Don’t miss this remarkable dissection of the clothes Sean Connery wore as James Bond in Dr. No. A wonderful piece, and a tribute to the basics - navy blazers, dark blue grenadine ties, forward pleats, elegant black tie.
