Considerations for specific garments for slim men, tip number 11: neckties and other accessories

Depending on your own personal preference, a necktie with a width of about two and three-quarters to three and 1/2 inches is going to look good on a slim frame. Just remember that the overall width of your necktie should be relatively in sync with the width of your jacket’s lapel so that everything is harmonious overall. Alternatively, knit ties are often only about two inches wide but their added texture and bulk will add some heft to your frame as I discussed previously in general overview. Anything narrower than two inches into the realm of super skinny ties will not do you any favors. Instead, these really slim ties are just going to echo the slimness of your overall frame. Whether you are wearing a long tie or a bow tie, consider something with an engaging and inviting visual pattern as this extra visual element will draw attention away from your frame.

Fortunately for the slim man, he’s got a good bit of latitude in what kinds of accessories he can wear that will add bulk to his frame without looking outlandish. Take, for example, a well-puffed pocket square in an inviting pattern. This will work similarly to the patterned tie that I just discussed and that it will draw eyes away from the slimness of your frame.

Considerations for specific garments for slim men, tip number 13:

Proportion is just as important here as anywhere of course and there is a point where an accessory will become too large making you just look like a clown. For example, overly broad belts and large belt buckles are not going to do a slim man any favors. For a slim man, you are simply going to be better suited wearing a moderately sized belt with a conservative belt buckle.
