Which tie width should I order?
This can be a tricky question, but let us try to answer this reasonably.
Proportion is the key word here: an outfit has to be well-balanced for its wearer to look good. Directly related to the width of the tie is the width of the lapel; the lapel should cover about half the length between shirt and shoulder to look harmonious. The tie at its widest point should be about as wide as the lapel at its widest point to achieve a well-balanced look. Depending on personal preferences, you can add or deduct 1-2cm from this width.
In practical terms, this roughly translates to the following: if you wear a EU 50 or 52 (US/UK 40 or 42) you will be best served with a 9 cm tie. If you’re under that, 8 cm is the way to go.
