    Plan to get a necktie or two soon, and checked what I had in the closet. Several look "too wide" to me, so did a search here to get advice on tie width. Found some specific recommendations in inches, but every once in awhile someone would mention width depends on lapel width. Is there a certain ratio/correlation that I am looking for? Or is it just a "looks good" thing? Appreciate any suggestions.

    The wide part of the tie should literally be the same width (give or take a pinch) as the widest part of the notch lapel.
