Ya know, Halloween coming up and all. Well, we have now recovered from the fit of laughter your comment caused us. You must send pictures, though it will hard to top the original when he wore outfits like this.
As for tie width, to truly nail the look, go for something over four inches wide. And we have got the perfect source for you to check out. Also, is the measurement taken with the tape parallel to the ground or perpendicular to the folded side of the lapel? You measure a peak lapel from the point of the lapel to the roll and measure with the tape parallel to the ground, PP.
Sorry, PP, think we misread the second part of your question. To get the precise width of the lapel, measure by holding the tape perpendicular to the inner edge of the lapel. For some reason I love skinny ties… I think wide ties look goofy and old fashioned.
I think guys in good shape with skinny ties and fitted suits look pretty sexy. For a skinny tie guy, the slim lapel is the way to go. The key is to keep everything in proportion. Those brands selling only skinny ties tend to sell only slim lapels on their jackets too.
Important and a great suggestion. Getting the proportions right is the key. A tie question My son got a Bottega Veneta tie as a gift. It is a normal length tie, but..
Can this be a mistake of the tailor?? Shall I have it corrected on one end, or is there a way to make a knot so it looks good?? Many slimmer ties are nearly the same width on both ends. A simple, four-in-hand knot should work just fine. Love this comment, it says a lot of you. The article is in fact, very useful and I appreciate very much the ilustration. The illustration is really good, but I suggest clarifying the rule because often it gets cited without the illustration. For the purposes of guiding your outfit decisions, the two points widest visible and widest point are probably close enough that either will work.
Pretty much summed up my thoughts. Perhaps donate them to a larger friend? You could also turn those wider ties into skinny ties: Your email address will not be published.

I suggest you take a look at my Tie Length Calculator. And which style do most people tend to use to tie their ties? Hi Jackie, technically there is only the Windsor and the half-Windsor. Some people call the Windsor also Double Windsor since it takes two wrapping to tie this knot.
Most popular is the four in Hand knot which also happens to be one of the easiest knots to tie. Probably in rhe business sector. Actually, skinny leather ties were insanely popular from I was in high school at the time and had a collection purchased at the local mall.
They were most assuredly a pop culture item in NYC during that time……. Hi Rich, Thank you for the great input! Do you really mind in the event that I actually employ a little of your personal suggestions? Hi Roy, Thanks for the comment. Your email address will not be published. Pierce Brosnan wears low-cut waistcoats in his first two Bond films, and on occasion, like in the most recent two Bond films, Bond wears cummerbunds.
Forgoing the waist covering is the classic Bond method. The most important part of the shirt is the collar, and James Bond always wears a turn-down collar—usually a spread collar—with black tie and never a wing collar.
Bond wears one of three different styles of shirt with black tie: Studs are not necessary with this kind of shirt and not part of the classic James Bond black tie look. Bond does not wear studs until Licence to Kill, the 16th film of the series! The pleated shirt may have double French cuffs or cocktail cuffs.
The marcella shirt also has not only a marcella bib but also the collar and cuffs—always double cuffs—in marcella cotton. Marcella is too stiff for the body and sleeves. The marcella shirt is the dressiest of all black tie shirts. The textured shirt is made with the same weave all over with no bib in front.
The texture may be a white-on-white waffle weave, like in Casino Royale , a white-on-white self stripe, like in Thunderball or an airy voile weave for hot weather, like in The Spy Who Loved Me and Octopussy. The shirt may either have a fly placket that covers the buttons or regular mother-of-pearl buttons down the front. Even less than the pleated shirt, the textured shirt is not dressy enough to take studs. Sometimes Bond combines the textured shirt with the pleated style, like in the pleated self-stripe shirts in Goldfinger and For Your Eyes Only.
A non-white shirt for black tie should be worn with caution. Bond has occasionally made the mistake of not wearing a matching bow tie, and this is not recommended. It usually has straight ends, but sometimes Bond wears a diamond-point bow tie.
All of these shapes are valid for the Bond look. The only thing that is a must is a self-tie bow tie. If you can tie your shoes correctly not a granny knot you can tie a bow tie.
They use the same knot! Bond never wears a pre-tied bow tie or long four-in-hand tie with his dinner suits. Black plain toe shoes are the most traditional choice. Though oxfords are preferred, if the slip-ons have a plain toe they are almost like a variation on the traditional opera pump.
In Casino Royale , Bond wears black calf plain-toe derby shoes with his dinner suit, which are not as traditional as oxfords but not a poor choice either.
The buttons are also different; they are always white mother-of-pearl except for the beige horn buttons in A View to a Kill. You can also leave any questions about wearing black tie like James Bond in the comments below. Like us and follow us below:. Guastav Graves has a nice wing-collar shirt, but he unfortunately wears his bow tie behind the collar wings. It just looked plain odd. See below Ps note how well dressed Vincent Price looks here….
Nice summary as usual Matt. I have never attended a black tie event and so have never had a chance to wear a dinner suit. But watching James Bond has certainly made me want to have one. Midnight blue, shawl collar with double vents. Where did this come from? For weddings during the day, I think black tie is inappropriate. Any wedding I have ever attended had the service held in either church or registry office during daylight hours whereas the celebrations afterwards meal, drinks, speeches, dancing etc.
This may be different in the US to Europe though. The wedding affairs I have seen with black tie were European. Protocol would indicate that the evening wear would ONLY be properly acceptable for the celebrations if the participants had changed from the appropriate formal wear for day time.
