What widths do you consider a tie to be skinny?

Been looking through B/S section for a cheap skinny tie for a themed party (you can probably guess what theme) and noticed that members begin calling ties skinny at different widths. So now I am just curious as to what you fellas consider to be skinny ties and preferably add in the comment what suit size you fit in.

To start off I consider <2.5" to be skinny and I'm a sz36.

I consider 2.5" to be skinny, so I went with 2.75".

Depends 100% on the dimensions of the wearer. If you're a 52L then a 3 inch tie is going to look narrow. If you're a 36S, then that same tie is going to look extremely standard.

3.5&quot; - standard
low 3&quot; / high 2&quot; range - slim
2.5&quot; or less- skinny

I prefer slim head and shoulders above the others

My vote would be for a tie &lt;3&quot; as &quot;skinny&quot;; 3&quot;-4&quot; seeming to be fairly standard.
