My brother just turned 14 and asked for a skinny tie. I can’t find them anywhere, so this tutorial is PERFECT!!! Thank you! I’ll be transforming some ties tomorrow! :)

I like narrower ties (the standard old 2 3/4″+/- width looks ridiculous on me) but not super skinny. When I buy new ones I get them from JCrew but they run $45-$75 and I have a ton of “full width” ties from when I was a teenager (early ’90s). I was going to send to the thrift shop if the tailor couldn’t narrow them – thanks to you I will soon have a bunch of new ties in the width I want! Awesome!

Sell that and you’ll get around $70-250. Besides that, this was a quality tutorial. I just hate to see already good fashion go to waste.

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

You’re the Internet article for which I’ve been waiting to trim down some of my wide ties. The pictures totally make the site!
Thanks! Be blessed.

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
