    Based on the Flusser passage, I think that a sub 3" tie would be perfectly acceptable for a sub-40R jacket. I think this will vary greatly based on body type - a sub 3" slim tie on a slim/skinny guy is going to look like a tie. A sub 3" tie on a broader guy may look like a skinny tie. Regardless, I will agree that 2.5" is probably a lower limit, just as 3.75 is probably an upper limit, regardless of body type or jacket size: anything above or below will likely look like a fashion play. Also, I want to clarify that I'm not saying "fashion" is synonymous with "bad" or "ridiculous" - I'm just calling a spade a spade.
    My measurements, for context--> Body Type: Slim/Skinny |​ Weight: 175 lbs | Height: 6'1" | Neck: 16” | Chest: 40” | Waist: 33.5” | Shoulder: 18.75” | Sleeve: 35.5” | Bicep: 12.75” | Wrist: 6.75”

    I'll add that, unless it's knit, it should still maintain the shape of a tie, even if it's slimmer. The rectangle strips of cloth 1" wide look horrible, like you tried to choke yourself with your belt, then gave up and went out the door.

    Perhaps the tie width discussion deserves its own thread at this point?

    I'd be interested... I don't own any by Drakes, but based on what they have available on their site now, I'd like one!

    Reiss one button peak lapel suit in air force blue. On sale for $260, down from $745.

    Still available in 36R. I think shoulders are 16.5", and length is 28.5" but I would confirm that before buying.

    Looks like a good deal, but I don't need another suit. And I don't think it is canvassed.

    Thanks for the heads up. This tie has always grabbed my attention. At $9, I pulled the trigger.

    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 agree. I'm 5'9/160lbs/around 38" chest or so. I've been buying the 3" ties because I find the 3.25" ties to be too wide for me.

    2.5" still feels a bit too modern/trendy. I haven't found a 2.75" yet, but I think that would probably work pretty well.

    Go with 11 unless you have broad/flat feet. I bought the same size as my allen edmonds and I'm kinda regretting it.
