Would you say the "standard width" is about 3.5"?
If there's a 'standard' in this, it's that eBay sellers, by standard, have no fucking idea what they are selling, and are too lazy to measure if not forced to do so. They are the ultimate flippers. Post the seller through the 'questions' channel and ask. Be clear; you want to know how long the tie is from end to end, and the width at the top of the point of the front blade (for all you eBay sellers, that's the part that shows when the tie is tied).
I love the 'bay. I detest the 'bay.
