On Tuesday, I wrote a post about the new "Paul Frank Presents" collection of accessories designed in collaboration with Native American artists. After so many egregious misappropriations of Native American culture by fashion brands (“Navajo” T-shirts at  Urban Outfitters  and feather headdresses on the runway at Victoria's Secret), I wrote that it was heartening to learn that Los Angeles-based  Paul Frank , the brand that turned a sock monkey into a fashion statement, announced it is collaborating with four tribes in regions across the country in what seemed to be an authentic way, giving artists the opportunity to design accessories for a special collection launching in August on PaulFrank.com.

After nearly a generation on the endangered accessories list, the old-school tie bar — the narrow piece of decorative metal (also known as a tie clip) that slides horizontally across a necktie and holds it flat against a gentleman's dress shirt — is enjoying a bit of a renaissance. "The tie bar trend is huge," said Macy's men's fashion director Durand Guion. "It's been trending strongly for us — as a nationwide store — for about the last two years. " J.P. Graytok, owner of the Collar Co. , a Somerville, N.J.-based e-commerce site that focuses on men's furnishings, describes a similar experience.
