What kind of tie is this? (stupid question)

I just bought this RRL tie. It has two wide ends (one slightly narrower). What kind of tie is this? Would this be tied like a normal necktie? Probably a stupid question, I've just never owned a tie that looked like this. Thanks!

Maybe I'm not used to "nice" neckties. I have at least a dozen ties. None of them have a skinny end that wide. I guess they all are more slim ties so maybe that's why?

i think you're right that the skinny end is usually narrower, but i dont think there's a specific name for a tie where the skinny end is a bit wider. rrl does a lot of repro type clothing, so they could have just followed an old design.

They are echoing the 1930s ties which usually are shorter ties(For today's standards, they are actually fine real with high waisted trousers) with the back end wider than what you see today.

And vests.

And often tucked into the shirt.
