A Skinny Black Tie – Its Fashion History and Place in the Modern Fashion World

Posted on February 19, 2018 in Uncategorized

Some of the fashion trends are so popular and classic that they remain in fashion forever. These fashion trends, for instance include black satin dress and black leather bags for women, while for men they may include accessories such as ties and black belts. One most important fashion trend which has been immensely popular from 50’s through to the 80’s and has made a comeback now in recent years in that of a skinny black tie. This tie has made a comeback with Hollywood stars preferring to wear them at award functions, and as these stars are looked up for fashion and style, many fashionable men around have started following them for this trend.

In the era of 20’s, these ties varied in width from 1 to 3 inches. During this time, both pointed and square end ties were popular. Most people during that era referred to the ties ranging from 1 to 1 1/2 inches as string ties.

During the 50’s that is after the cold war and the Korean War men’s fashion became conservative with tapered pants and smaller lapels. To match these, slimmer ties came into fashion. Ties in black and other dark colors were most preferred by men during this time.

During the age of rock music, teenagers and young boys looked up for fashion to stars like Elvis Presley. Elvis wore skinny ties, so once again the trend reached to its peak. College students and young boys started wearing as skinny ties as just 1 inch in width. Again in the 80’s skinny neckties became popular especially due to the musicians and songsters, who would prefer wearing them.

Today, skinny neckties have stepped into fashion again and so there are many Hollywood stars such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and others, who are seen wearing them to award shows and for TV interviews. No matter what, but there is always something special about these skinny neckties which make the men look more classic and decent. Nowadays about 3 inches wide skinny ties are enough while I personally think that you should go for the width according to your stature.
