I'm going to a Christening in a few weeks and I'm going to wear a very smart shirt and trousers.

I'm trying to deicde if I should wear a skinny or normal sized tie.

What ties are more fashionable - skinny ties or ordinary sized ties!!


I'm leaning towards the skinny tie but I get the feeling they are more suited for smart / casual dressing. Please help. Thanks.

Thanks, but what do you mean by 'which are in between'?

I'm attracted to ties which are of quite a similar colour to the shirt - not skinny tho. Have fun at christening x

IMO skinny ties look ridiculous. Then again, a tie that's far too wide for you will also look stupid. The exact width of tie that will suit you best is dependent on your body shape; the wider you are, the wider the tie you need.

Personally, I wouldn't wear a tie without a jacket/blazer. If I were putting together an outfit like that, I'd just leave the tie out altogether if wearing a jacket isn't an option.

Skinny ties have no place at strictly formal events. I wouldn't say a christening is strictly formal though. What's the official dress code? Smart or smart/casual?
