Friday Faux Pas: Too Big Tie Bar

There are a multitude of issues that men seem to have with tie bars. Where do they go? What color? What style? How big/thick?The list goes on and on, but my biggest concern comes down to the width.
Everything was good...until the tie bar.
There nothing that irks me more than to see a man who got something stylish put together and then falls short because his tie bar is thicker than his tie. This slip up portrays one of two attitudes: my ties are way too skinny or i don't know what I'm doing here, either way, these aren't Things your want tacked on to your style resume. There's a little thing in the math world called the golden ratio and its relevant to your world because it deals in proportions and getting a detail on par with this ratio will be very noticeable. Pertaining to the tie bar, it should take up about a third of the width of your tie or the opposite being two thirds, keeping true to the ratio. Seeing as your standard tie is 3 inches, you're going to want to keep it simple with anything between one and two inches, that way you have absolutely no chance of it being wider than your tie!
Just stop. Go home and start over.
