As men's suits began to slim down in the 1950's, so did men's ties, and by the late 50's, skinny ties were born. By the early 60's neckties as narrow as one inch were produced. The bright, loud colors often found in 40's vintage ties were transformed into more subdued blacks, grays, reds, greens and browns in the 1950's. Many 50's and 60's vintage skinny ties have an interesting flourish as a focal point. Thin men's neckties have regained popularity and today even television characters express their unique sense of style with narrow ties. So can you!
