This week, Seacrest pairs his black-and-white look (featuring a gingham shirt and polka-dot pocket square) with his must-have accessory: a tie bar. And Seacrest explains it’s all about placement when it comes to wearing one. “So when I put the tie bar on, I make sure it doesn’t cross the tie beyond the edge of the tie. That’s where I think that it looks best,” he says in the video.

“And then where do you put it? That’s another thing. Too high? Too low? In the middle? I like it between the second and third button. I feel like that’s kind of the right spot for it. You just have to make sure you check it every once in a while because it can get crooked.”
