According the the Wall Street Journal, “Skinny ties and slim-cut suits are all the rage for fall.”
In a sign, perhaps, that the deification of Madison Avenue’s “Mad Men” has now reached Wall Street, Salvatore Ferragamo–the long-time go-to label for bankers and the men who like to look like them–is taking a retro nod to the 1960s to a new level with a rework of its signature printed silk ties in a skinny version. The Italian luxury goods house is joined by designers from Italo Zucchelli at Calvin Klein to Frida Giannini at Gucci who have been showing men’s collections for fall with 1960s undertones. Narrow suits paired with even narrower ties reference a time when a cigarette and a drink got you through your 9 to 5. Although a slim-cut suit might not work on all physiques, men can modernize their look by donning a skinny tie. Ferragamo’s ties, which will retail for $160, are available at Salvatore Ferragamo stores starting this November, and will be available in a variety of colors and prints. – From WSJ
