#Evaluate tie thickness. Ties generally come in four different thicknesses: 2 in (5 cm), 2½ in (6.4 cm), 3 in (7.6 cm), and 3¼ - 3½ in (8¼ - 8.9 cm).

#Use a dollar bill to determine width in a pinch. When shopping for ties, you might not be able to tell at a glance whether or not a tie is on the thick or thin side. In this case, you can use a dollar bill to check the width. Hold your tie against the side of your dollar bill with Washington's portrait. If the tie stretches from the left side of the dollar bill to Washington's left eye, the tie is 3 in (7.6 cm) long.<ref>http://www.artofmanliness.com/2011/04/26/match-tie-with-shirt-suit/</ref>[[Image:Match a Tie Step 3.jpg|center]]

#Avoid ultra-skinny ties for formal events. Ties that are 2 in (5 cm) or thinner are generally considered to be "fashion statement" length. Skinny ties are usually the same thinness for the entire length of the tie.[[Image:Match a Tie Step 5.jpg|center]]
