Ralph Lauren Italian Made Fine Dot – $49.99 ($115) | J. Press Rep Stripe – $19.99 ($34)
All things in moderation… no?
That Ralph Lauren you see on the left is Italian made, has a solid construction, and is equipped with a timeless fine dot pattern. But it’s 3.5″ in width.
The J. Press for Urban Outfitters on the right? Crazy cheap at under $20 and simple. But it’s a measly 2″ in width.
Like the rise and fall of women’s hemlines, the accepted width of men’s ties seem to expand and contract like a well used accordion. So what’s as skinny as you’ll go? And when is a tie too fat for you? Or does it mostly depend on collar size, type, and the lapel width on your jacket?
