    I am 5'3 and weigh around 112 pounds. My shoulders are about 16" end-to-end.

    I am trying to decide between 2.5" or 3". Since most ties these days are on the skinny side, i figure 2.5" might make it easier to buy ties, but who knows how trends will change. 3" ties seem harder to find. I assume it's because it's not a traditional width for ties.

    For those of you who are short and skinny, what lapel width have you gone with?

    Also, if what's your jacket length? For my height, I am thinking of going 26" or 26.5".
