Tips to Tie a Skinny Tie
Tips to Tying a Skinny Tie
That skinny neckties are hip is nothing new. During the recent Golden Globes for instance celebrities such as Glee’s Chris Colfer, Jeremy Irvine, Benedict Cumberbatch, or Ewan McGregor all dressed in elegant skinny black ties ranging from ultra skinny 1.5 inches to 2.5 inches in width (compared to a normal tie’s width of 3.25-3.75 inches). Before you pick out a skinny necktie and wear it to work make sure you pair it with a slim fitted suit that has proportionate narrow lapels. Also, best are dress shirts with a shallower collar. In addition to matching the skinny tie to the right jacket, pants, and shirt, there are certain tie knots that look better for narrow width ties. Excellent are asymmetric tie knots that are slightly loosely tied. The best tie knot for skinny ties is the Four in Hand. Below is a video I found on Youtube that will teach you all the tips and tricks for tying the skinny tie with a Four in Hand. I hope you find this video as useful as I did.

I love narrow ties. Thanks for the video!
Great video! Thanks for the tips. I am new to wearing ties (part of my new job) but simply don’t like the look of wider neckties. All my ties are 2-2.75 inches in width. I find this to be the perfect width for me.
