Slim tie in a four-in-hand knot w/ spread collar, why not?

post #1 of 12

Do you wear it, the (slim) tie tied in a FIH worn with a spread collar?

I know not many like slim ties. The pic below is the slimmest I wear at 2.5 inches. Admittedly, I am now partial to 2 7/8 inch slim ties. But I like the space, the void, the openness a FIH creates with a spread.

Not sure I like it with a 2 button collar.

+1. One button collar would be better because your whole knot is swallowed up by the space for the buttons

Prince Charles has mastered the look.

What collar is that on Charlie there? A cutaway?

And, I just noticed, that shirt isn't a two button collar. I don't know how that button got pinched like that.

I dislike it for the same reason.

It appears to me to be a fairly wide spread, but not a cutaway.

That 4inH looks wierd with that wide spread collar. A windsor knot would look more appropriate. As it stands, your neck looks like its sprouting wings.

OP, put on a jacket and you'll really see the contrast of a spread collar/thin tie.

The angle of the shot probably makes it look a lot worse than it is, but I don't like the four in hand with a spread collar.

Not sure. The "Prince of Wales" or "Regent" collar (from Turnbull & Asser) perhaps?
