I discovered that even with ties you can find your right size, I'm a quite short and slim guy with a 38" chest and somewhere I read that for me the perfect tie should be from 2.5" to 3" width at the widest point.
So I'm looking for nice slim tie to buy.
Actually I wear a nice green RL tie, a BoB tie and some other italian skinny ties in solid color. I'm looking for few regimental ties, especially a navy one and a chambray one.
So, guys, give me some ideas and post some pix of your slim ties.

I am not very short but I am slim so I definitely prefer the slim ties. I am particularly fond of the knit ones in silk, wool, or cotton. I like ties with texture. 2.5" is the sweet spot for me with most ties except knits. Knits I prefer in 2"-2.25". Anything much wider in a knit and I feel like I'm wearing a sock around my neck.
