    Trad tends narrower than that, I think 3.25" or less would be more like it.

    I like a 2"-2.5" tie. Keep in mind, I am really thin, so 3" or more looks pretty ridiculous on me.
    IMO, the only ones that look good that narrow are knits.

    3 to 3.5, depending on the outfit. 4 gets too wide. I am a 39 or 40R, narrowly built.

    Wider things I might wear under a V neck sweater.

    Ideally, I would have opted for 3 3/8", but that wasn't a choice. I went with a slightly larger 3.5" tie since I own the greatest number of that particular width.

    Actually, I really only wear knits. I do have a few non-knit ties, but I never wear them.
