    Was the necktie width in 1966-1969 was 2.25-3 inches? I'm looking at old ads from the 1960s.

    I think that depends on who was wearing it. The vogue for wide neckties began around 1968. An ad from exactly that year:

    I wish I had a shirt and neckties like that! I bet Don Draper wouldn't wear loud colors on MAD MEN. :)

    I don't think that character was part of the "Peacock Revolution."

    Tommy Nutter played a big role in it.

    The tie width usually depends on the width of the lapels. You wouldn't wear a skinny tie with the 70s lapel wings would you?

    It seems vintage 50s and 60s ties are usually slim 2.5 - 3. Or large 4+. Similar to lapels you usually see on that era of suits. Interestingly enough thats a lot like the tie and lapel fashion now.
