I'm wearing a one-button peak lapel tux to my wedding. I'm super-skinny, and I've got a long, narrow face. Is there a certain type/height of bow tie I should be looking for in light of my proportions? I see there are 1.5 inch ones out there, but I wasn't sure if that was still a classic look.

Just make sure you tie the bow tie so it finishes inside the lines of your face and you'll be fine.

Is wearing a 2.5 inch/classic butterfly shape vs. a 1.5 inch/batwing purely a stylistic decision? In what situations would one lean towards one vs. the other?
