Large, classic, skinny or ultra skinny, today's ties come in many different widths. That said, large chunky ties are pretty much out of fashion. They belong to the old generation (of very old politicians, for example). On the other hand, ultra skinny ties - which look cool and trendy on Pete Doherty or Brad Pitt - do not fit everybody and can be frowned upon at work. Who wants his tie to be a conversation piece?
At ANNE TOURAINE USA Custom Scarves and Custom Ties, we are flexible and we adapt to our customers' requests. Yet, we know from experience that classic ties (in the 3 inch range) are the safest and most common option: it will please a large audience.
Classic ties are certainly not a novelty piece but they fit most bodies - from bulky to slim, from tall to short. They are suitable at the office, at a wedding or for a more casual event. Because they are neither too big neither too small, they look natural and elegant and work with every shirt collar. They allow different knots - though often the simpler the better. Last but not least, classic sized ties make it easy to feature a company's logo or a specific pattern inspired by the brand while still being subtle and chic.
If you are thinking about custom ties for your staff or as gifts for your customers, we won't say it enough: you want to please everyone and everyone is different. To avoid any mistake, opt for a classic 3 inch wide tie. You can't go wrong!
