Went through my ties today and decided that because of my gut, I am keeping my 4 inchers. The ones that 'look' like 4 inches are going, but the others are staying. With my jacket closed no one will know, and with it opened or off, my gut will make the 4 inchers look like 3.75 inchers anyway. No skinny ties for me thanks. What about the rest of you larger-bellied men out there?
