BookATailor NYC - Skinny Tie

When talking about the popular skinny tie, most people associate the look with the 1960s. The skinny tie was made popular through pop icons like the Beatles during the end of the 50s. Before the 50s ties usually measured 4.25 inches at the widest point, which is much wider than an average skinny tie. The classic vintage skinny tie from the late 50s measures between 2 and 2.5 inches in width. Eventually, the skinny tie came out of style during the end of the 60s and fashion designers slowly went with wider necktie cuts, however during the 80s they made a comeback. The materials used to make the skinny tie vary widely. Some designers had solid colored black skinny ties made from leather, while others carried ties that were knitted from cotton and even wool. Knitted skinny ties usually had a flat tip. Even today knitted version of the skinny tie are back in style although not for any formal or business attire. Check out for vintage skinny ties and stylish custom suits.
