    Probably to be rebellious and flout rules and regulations for good order and discipline.

    Showing no respect for the school that is trying to give a good education, probably for free. It is a known fact that people generally do not respect things they don't have to work and pay for themselves.

    Lack of severity of consequence is also a huge problem

    Nothing is new.

    At school in the late 70s/early 80s, we did exactly that. Our school ties from the approved outfitters were all 4.5"+ bladed seventies monstrosities. So we reversed them and wore the thin (back) end out and tucked the kipper end in our shirts, in an effort to look like like the young Paul Weller. The young Paul Weller if he was wearing a provincial school uniform, had acne, and a crush on Victoria Principal.

    Magnificent to hear that this style has been revived... Sort of.

    It will have to be pretty short or else some of the fat end will be under your collar and look bad.

    I'm fairly certain this is only SF-approved with an Eric Glennie tie.

    True iGents / iMasters source the school silk pattern and get their school tie tailor made.

    It's an abomination against good taste. Skinny ties in general are pretty stupid.

    Oh please. Skinny ties can look great and have been worn by some of the most stylish men of all time. Im not talking comically skinny ties.
    You're first sentence is accurate, however.

    You could always send the tie to tiecrafters and have them narrow it
