The Tie Bar continues its recent expansions into apparel by launching its first casual shirting collection. Compromised of five core styles, the capsule collection was developed to be worn any day of the week, tucked or untucked. Loyal fans of The Tie Bar and first-time customers alike can expect all the quality of a premium-made shirt retailing for $55 or three for $140.

All designed with a slightly shorter length in either 100 percent flannel or patterned cotton, the new shirts are available in either Standard (classic) or Trim (slimmer) fits in both modern, tapered cuts with a slimmer sleeve and body. Sized by neck and sleeve (over 30 sizes across the two fits), all styles are perfectly suited to be mixed and matched with any pant found in the closet. Each shirt is 100 percent cotton, machine washable, and softer than grandpa’s pajamas.

The initial five styles will include solid flannels (blue and grey), a check flannel (green and grey), a diamond dobby (light blue), and a patterned cotton tribal print (navy blue and white). Built to flex from comfy casual to a big day at the office while perfectly complementing the brand’s newest dress shirt offerings (classic vertical stripes,  seasonal fall chambrays, rich checks, and faded ginghams). Additional seasonal and trend-specific styles will be introduced moving forward.

“Customers shouldn’t feel limited by a casual shirt that’s only meant to be worn one way,” said Allyson Lewis, CEO of The Tie Bar. “So, we created an option that’s both stylish and comfortable, one perfectly suited for any lifestyle. Shirting has become a driving force for The Tie Bar, further growing this category to include casual options was both the perfect counterpart to our existing dress styles and an opportunity to further showcase what makes our shirts so special.”

The casual shirt collection will be available both online and in The Tie Bar’s six in-store retail locations (Boston, Chicago Flagship, Chicago Loop, D.C., New York, and Philadelphia).


  1. These shirts look great for price/value/fabrics purpose but fail miserably with the collars. They’re cut too straight and narrow (like the cardboard liner under your shirts from the laundry) and should be shaped/curved to break over the collarbone and the point length should be at least 3 inches and the collar height just shy of 2 inches.
