Why seek approval from unknown internet clothing geeks like us?

If you like the ties, you'll wear them. Are you going to opt for a tie that everyone here says they like, if you yourself hate it?

no, i wouldn't wear a tie that i hate just because others say they like it

i think i'll keep this one ^ and return the one in the first post now most of the new ties are pretty skinny i think most of them are about 2.5" are skinny ties too trendy? i don't want to not be able to wear these after a year or two edit - 1 is 2.75" (the gray checker) 2 are 3" (herringbone and grenadine) 2 are 3.25" (the solid purple and the other check pattern) only the skinny tie that i'm wearing is 2.5

2.75-3" would be fine, but 2.5" is pushing it. The one in the pic looks narrower than I would like.

I really like the last two. Also, your shirt sleeves are too long and should be tailored.
