The skinny tie originated during the late 1960s and has since been a fashion accessory that any man should have in his collection of ties. Most skinny ties range between 1.5 to 2.5 inches in width. Below is our current collection of skinny neckties.
Matching the Skinny Tie
Matching a skinny tie requires more than the right suit and shirt. Equally important is the type of tie knot chosen as well as the man wearing the skinny tie. The skinny necktie looks best on tall and thin men and should be matched with European cut suits that have a narrow lapel. In addition, the type of tie knot tied matters. Best are smaller and narrower knots such as the half Windsor knot as well as the classic Four in Hand knot.

Why Men Wear Skinny Ties
Skinny ties originated in the 1960s and were especially popular among younger men which may have to do with the fact that bands like The Beatles wore skinny ties quite regularly. Skinny ties remained popular throughout the 60s but where soon overshadowed by much wider neckties – popular in the 1970s. Then in the late 1970s The Blues Brothers brought skinny ties once again into the lime light. Since then skinny ties are a come-and-go fashion accessory that experiences more popularity in some times than others. Skinny ties started to become more popular once again around 2009. Today almost every retailer and designer offers skinny ties in their collections. We at Cheap-Neckties.com carry several dozen of skinny ties that are featured above.
