I purchased this tie in multiple colors as a gift. The tie is well made and looks great with a crisp white shirt or a colored one. The colors are rich in every color that I purchased it in, e.g., blue and cranberry...etc. It looks like an expensive tie but they were reasonably price. Just purchase it for the male in your life ...he will be pleasantly surprised. The person I gifted these ties to was in shocked and loves wearing anything Michael Kors...especially with his Michael Kors white shirts. The tie is not "skinny." It's a traditional width. This is a classic tie which will last for years. Believe me, these ties look just as good as the high end designer ties.I trust this information will be helpful in making your decision.
