Tip-of-the-Day: Tie/Lapel Ratio


I've received many comments and questions regarding my recent post about super-skinny ties, and the correct ratio/sizing. Here is a simple rule that can easily help with your proportions:

Your tie, at it's widest point, should be about the same width as your lapels (or slightly slimmer, but never wider).



This will give you a good balance. And as we all know, life is all about good balance.

Yours in style,
SB

I would never have even considered that, but when you think about it, it makes perfect sense.

I cosign fully. I really didn't think about it in that manner. Great knowledge drop.
