Milan Menswear Autumn/Winter 2008/09 - Dolce & GabbanaAt The Fall/Winter Milan Mens fashion Show all the designers are outfitting their models in Skinny ties. For those of us who can remember the late 1970’s and early 1980’s the skinny ties made its debut during that period with tight fitting suits, as the punk rock era passed the wearing of skinny ties slowly went away. Fashion is always evolving one minute something is hot and the next minute its not.

During 2007, we have seen a lot of celebrities rocking the Skinny tie look, (Justin Timberlake, Zac Efron, and Robin Thicke). You know celebrities have influence over what some people wear, and thats how designers market their products. They have the celebrities wear their merchandise then hope consumers react positively to it.

    ‘Fraid not guys – the tie style now known as ‘skinny’ USED to be called ‘Slim Jim’ ties and originated back in the late ’50’s and were fashionable into the mid 60’s. It’s the same with ‘skinny’ jeans – they USED to be called ‘drainpipe’ jeans.
    This ‘skinny’ tag was just a re-invention of previous way-cool styles from the 50’s/60’s which already had perfectly good names, until some culturally devoid ‘ideas-man’ decided to re-name older, iconic styles to make a few bucks out of the public ‘sheep’!
