I also heard that the width of the tie- if worn with a suit- should echo the width of the lapel. Don’t know how true it is, but I’ll give it a go :-)

It is perfect! I had to shorten the other end and I just used the same technique on that end as well. Thank you so much!

I originally wanted to take my Barney Stinson ducky tie (from How I Met Your Mother) and get it hemmed into a skinny, now I can do this myself. Thank you!

I’ve took some of the old ties from my Dad, who just passed away, and I was thinking of a way to wear them as a head bands and /or ties for my jeans, and convert the regular ones into skinny ones is going to make them awesome for me to wear! Thanks so much again!

The idea came to me again (yesterday, March 18) and I mentioned it to a friend who encouraged me to go and purchase the material and unstitch an old tie and make a pattern from it. I did purchased the material and started to search the internet for instructions on “how to make ties”. I am glad that I found your site. Thanks for the ideas. You have inspired me. I will proceed with my project shortly

I LOVE THIS IDEA! I have to wear ties to work and being a woman that is only 5’4″ tall most men’s ties are too long and too wide. I enjoy wearing the skinny ties, but you are right….they are hard to find. Especially ones that look right for my stature.

My 15-year-old kiddo stumbled upon your tutorial–we’ve been accumulating clearanced Jerry Garcia ties, and he asked me to ‘skinny them down’ according to your directions. They’ll be unique, for sure: “Hey … where’d you find a SKINNY Garcia tie?” Our secret. :)

Your website is lovely, and good therapy. :D

Once all the starving hipsters, whether from being poor or doing too much drugs, started rocking them we realized they just looked better. I think it is an undeniable matter of aesthetics that a person who is in shape is going to look best with a skinny tie while a larger person is going to look silly wearing a skinny tie, and vice-versa. The tie accents the shape of the body by mimicking it. Kind of like how a fitted shirt is inarguably more attractive on lean people because of how it adorns the beautiful shape of the human body. I mean “fatty” ties even start to bulge out towards the bottom much in the same manner as a larger person starts to bulge at the waist and hips. The fashion industry may be fickle, but that doesn’t mean that some fashion trends are more aesthetically sound.
