The Lucas Taylor Tie Clip is made of handcrafted Cocobolo heartwood taken from the classiest tree in Central America, the Dalbergia retusa.

Only after extensive consideration and solemn meditation did we select Cocobolo wood for our tie clip, and the results have been amazing. Cocobolo is the Frank Sinatra of woods--classy, sophisticated, and timeless. Known for its durability and beautiful finish, Cocobolo is used to make fine furniture and musical instruments. Because of the high demand for this species of wood, it has become one of the most rare and expensive varieties in the world.

Unlike other wood tie clips, the Lucas Taylor boasts a routed groove in back to secure the metal portion of the clip, offering superior durability and fashionability. The final product is hand sanded and stained for a sleek and professional finish that is sure to attract attention--unless you don't want it to, in which case it won't.

The wood face of the clip is two inches long, allowing it to be worn with a variety of different ties including that skinny one your girlfriend likes and that fat seventies one your grandpa gave you as a graduation gift.

With your support, we will be able to revolutionize men's fashion and change the world as we know it ... oh yea, and hopefully meet the clip manufacturer's minimum order quantity, allowing us to produce the Lucas Taylor at an affordable price. 

Disclaimer: While we are confident that the Lucas Taylor Wood Tie Clip will make you look classier, we cannot guarantee that this two inch piece of metal and wood will actually make you a more refined, sophisticated individual. All we can do is offer you this classy, little clip and hope it inspires you to find the sophistication within yourself and share it with others. 

Thank you for your support of the distinguished life.

Have a sophisticated day.

Risks and challenges

We are confident that our current production plan will be able to support our expected funding. We have the capacity to recruit additional help to aid in the manufacturing of the wood portion of the clip, and even outsource to local manufacturers if needed. If, however, our sales are higher than anticipated, a large order of clip backings will be necessary, possibly delaying production. We will make every effort to ensure that our clip is on your tie as soon as possible.
