    Not really. If you're a broader guy wearing slim/skinny lapels and slim/skinny ties, it's never going to look quite right. However, if you're a slim/skinny guy, then 2.5" ties and lapels may best complement your body type. Either way, while slim/skinny lapels/ties may not be the new, hot fashion anymore, that certainly doesn't mean they're a faux pas. Besides, I thought we all are striving to be stylish, not fashionable, right?

    I've wondered how many Dappered forum members I've walked past in the city. It'd be fun to have a low-key Boston/N.E. area get together at some point.

    I have to agree with Fred about the 2.5. I'm a size 40, and my closet is filled with smaller then 3 inch ties I barely ever wear. And when I do, I'm unhappy with the look. 3" still works for me though.

    I've tried staying around 3". The 2.5" JCrew ties have always been much too slim for my tastes.

    I have a couple of 7cm Drakes that I got on clearance from NMLC just taking up space in my closet too. Hmm, maybe I should toss them up on Swap & Shop ...

    Square end knit ties that are 2.5-2.75 are thicker throughout than comparable ties in the usual style which taper, so to my mind that's a good width for that style.

    A 1" or 1.5" tie is certainly ridiculous:

    2.5" tie not so bad on small slim guys:

    2.5" tie bad on wider chests:

    You guys would have to see me in 3.25" ties that I bought from department stores. I look like the outfit on the left in this photo. I'm changing to skinnier ties (2.5"-2.75") to look more like the outfit on the right:

    Can anyone really make the argument that I should look like the gentleman on the left?

    I don't think anyone's saying it's ridiculous. It just doesn't work for some guys. Clearly it works for your frame.
