Q: I walked into the Gap because I saw one of their models on the display poster wearing a black skinny tie and white shirt combination. But as it turns out, Gap doesn’t sell the black skinny tie, the one thing that made me walk into the store. Where’s a good place to buy a skinny tie?
A: Chic and modern (and a Hollywood red carpet staple), skinny ties are surprisingly hard to find in mall-type stores. Luckily, they’re more readily accessible online. Here’s a few skinny ties to check out:
1.5" Woven Polyester Tie (Style 1523) | $15 at NarrowTies
A textured matte finish gives this uber-narrow tie it’s popularity. 56" long.
(Pictured) 2.75" Satin Finish Tie | $9.95 (sale) at Tieguys
With a widest width of 2.75" (one inch less than a standard tie) and a length of 57", this tie is narrow–but not too narrow.
1.5" Satin Finish Skinny Tie | $9.95 at Dancestore
Perfect for special occasions, this tie features a satin finish and a dramatically narrow width.
