Travellers (I think) usually are made of a fabric which is a little more wrinkle resistant than usual.

Fabulous!

I guess I'll just go with the combo in the picture then. 

Clags said it is....I disagree. It looks fine to me.

Edit: I said "will be." As in, the midnight Hober. Though outside the tie being too skinny (it is), that first combo you posted isn't bad.

got it.

I feel more comfortable wearing a wider tie so will go with the Hober.

Personal preference type thing, Noodles. If you think it's too skinny, then wear the Hober.

Thanks, Clags. So there are no "wrongs" that I'm missing in wearing it as a regular SC, beside the detail that it's more resistant to wrinkles which I assume one can't see with the bare eye? I'm able to get my hands on a quality piece for a reasonable price, hence my question.

How could a difference of 1/4 of an inch at the widest (non-visible) point of a tie, corresponding to maybe 1/8" width difference in the part that is actually visible, turn a tie from "great, just right" to "oh no no, definitely skinny"?

1/4 of an inch? It is 3.5 inch vs 3.1 inch. The difference of 2/5 of an inch or 0.4 should is be noticeable.

What you can do is make the back blade more visible. Just push it a little to the side, and dimple it too, so it makes the tie look wider. Now I don't mean that the back blade should be right next to front blade, it should still be behind it, but visible. Something like this:

I'm not a hardliner about the whole "tie and lapel should be matching widths," especially when you get into some of the wider lapels.

 

But regardless of what the measurements are, this does look too skinny to me. And that's what matters (the way it looks, not that I'm the one seeing it). It also might be the way which the blade is curving, appearing almost concave there, making it appear narrower.

 

 

 

Edit:

I also will occasionally do as Monkeyface suggested.

It just bothers me...I wish I had the 9cm version of that tie...sigh

I agree with Clags. I know you were all waiting to see what I had to say.

I think I just over anal lice everything. It struck me just now that the same tie looked fine on another Formosa. Below is a 3.5" tie. Glad I've wasted a lot of time today. Just counting down to my trip to North Korea next week!

Anal lice?
I think you should see a specialist or quit using speech to text.
I spit out my diet coke reading this.
Thanks for the laugh
I like both ties.
However, I am not considered a paragon of style.
