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,
