I have been seen ties made out of chainmaille but that is not what i am looking for. Has any made a 'tie bar' to hold your tie in place. Or a place where I might find one. I am not able to properly make one for myself.

I have not made a tie bar, though I have made a tie chain, where the loop fits over your button, and the chain holds the tie in place.

Tie chain standalone
Tie chain in use

If you truly want to make a tie bar, I would search on barrettes, as I think that you'll need to affix the maille to a rigid backing on the clasp in much the same way as a barrette.

That, or use a sufficiently dense weave, possibly tossing in some spot-welding between rings to firm things up even more

It would need to be a structural weave, at the "lock up" limit of its AR...
One of the Inverted Round weaves at sufficiently low AR would work.

If you're looking for a more "flat" profile, you might be a little out of luck. Most sheet weaves have a habit of curling at sufficiently low AR, rather than hard locking...

That being said, there's always the "Make and Glue" aspect... A low AR sheet weave (just before it starts to curl) weldbonded to a flat tie clip would also work...

But if you're looking for "Pure Chainmail" I think you'll find low AR structural weaves (Inverted Round, etc) the way to go.

I have done one close to what Zlosk posted, just slightly different. I for the life of me can't find a picture of the wire work part but here is a picture of it on a tie. I gave it to a friend's husband who is a lawyer and he loved how it worked.

I made one and it is adjustable to the width of your tie. I found a good idea of making a button hook. Rene is a member here and does a lot of nice stuff. the foto of his design and product are at http://www.nearoth.com/c-2124577/producten/

you can use the chain that you prefer to make your tie bar. good luck, and thanks to a good idea from Rene.
