For those of us that have Euro-Bodies – slim, skinny and lean (sometimes), skinny ties have become a popular choice for accessorizing our wardrobes, especially for informal occasions.
For those of you who have not yet watched Looper, watch it! It’s a fantastic movie that meshes sci-fi, drama, plot and character development with such seamless ease you almost forget which genre of movie you are watching. For those of you that have watched it, there is a scene in which Bruce Willis mocks Joseph-Gordon Levitt on his cravat and how humans need to evolve with their dress sense.
While I thought this was hilarious, I want the picture above to illustrate just how good a skinny tie can look on those of you that are slimmer. The reason a skinny tie will not work on broader shouldered guys is that it just looks disproportionate.
Now, on the other hand, if we threw a skinny tie on Magic Johnson or Arnold Schwarzenegger, I think it would look quite comical. Love both of those guys, but I highly doubt they would be able to don a skinny tie – you get the point!
