The skinny tie is not for everyone. But its also something that's hard to resist. Check out Colin Farrell showing up to his New York premiere of Total Recall in Dolce & Gabbana in a skinny tie no less. This one stands out quite nice with its shiny burgundy silk. Matching it with a bit of looseness of the knot looks good and the proper collar for it with narrow lapels. The look works on a slim guy, but if you're a larger sort of man, you might just want to try some slim cut suits with medium width ties to get the look.
