It seems like there are fewer occasions in the week that warrant a necktie anymore—while the occasions that demand one have disappeared almost completely. While it is liberating to not feel required to wear one in every office, that same lack of stipulation makes us want to wear one even more.

Here are some fine “Narrow Ties” from Monitaly‘s Spring/summer 2012 collection. Narrow is good because skinny is a tad silly and wide wants to sell you insurance. It is funny that a company like Monitaly would offer up neck-hangers, though, as so much of what they craft is meant to be worn on boating excursions and bear hikes. Whatever their reasoning, these puppies—made in the U.S.A.—look soft and just a little serious, which is precisely where the tie has landed in these modern times. Up There Store has them.
