Let’s face it: fashion repeats itself.Some of you may rather not re-live the 80s, but the rad fads of the decade have returned. Gentlemen, it is time to embrace the stylish effects of a skinny tie. A custom suit serves the offers you the best fit for your body. An Astor & Black garment is tailored to provide the comfort of a second skin that enhances your build. Slim ties complement a fitted suit by accentuating a tall, slender frame. Though you can’t go wrong with the three-and-a-half inch width of a traditional necktie, narrow ties have a personality all their own.
The thinner the tie, the more retro the look. But whether dressed to the nines in a formal tux or kicking back in jeans and a casual button-up, we can’t deny that a narrow tie adds flair.
But keep in mind the importance of proportion: a thinner tie should mean a thinner lapel and smaller shirt collar, as well as a smaller tie knot. For a clean look, a half-Windsor is your best bet, otherwise a simple four-in-hand will do.
So is a skinny tie right or wrong for you?
