Choosing a tie is like choosing glasses - different people have different needs, and each time it should be based on personal circumstances and the current scene. For business people, the width of the tie has a significant impact on overall image. The following three points can help you understand how to choose the appropriate tie width:
Simply put, compare the tie with the collar of your suit jacket. A wide suit collar cannot match a narrow and long tie, and a slim suit collar does not match a wide tie either. If you plan not to wear a jacket and cannot compare it with one, you can use the collar of your shirt for comparison. The same principle applies: a narrow shirt collar does not match a wide tie, and vice versa.
Generally speaking, people with wider body shapes are suitable for wider ties; while slim ties usually match men with slender figures. This theory is based on visual proportionality. However, as a general rule, ties that are about three inches wide are suitable for most men's body shapes.
The traditional belief is that wide-necked ties are more formal, while narrow-necked ties are more fashionable and not suitable for formal occasions. However, nowadays there is no clear distinction between the two, as fashionable tie designs can also appear dignified and not overly playful in serious settings. Additionally, it is important to note that color coordination of the tie is crucial. Generally speaking, the pattern on the tie should be more prominent than that on the shirt. At times, one can choose a shirt and tie with equally bold patterns. However, it is imperative not to let the pattern on the shirt overshadow that on the tie.
A man's necktie is akin to a woman's jewelry around her neck - adding radiance while also enhancing personal charm.
